Well i got home from work to find the Verizon Curve 3G (because Verizon PR department I work with is top notch) and was excited to check it out, but just as I noticed the box was EMPTY my Daughter came around the corner with it, handed it to me and said, "I really like it, used it quite a bit, no noticeable lag, the 3G seemed fast, was easy to type on and I already set it up on our WiFi.
Anyway lets get back to the task at hand, I am going to post some quick pictures of the device, operating system and available memory out of the box, and will try it out over the next few days and give it a review. I have used the keypad and device emailing the screen shots to myself and so far the feel of the device is just like my 8900.
Verizon released the BlackBerry Curve 3G in business sales channels on Sept. 16, and it will be available online and in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores in the coming weeks for $29.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement on a voice plan with an Email and Web feature or an Email and Web for BlackBerry plan. Data plans for the BlackBerry Curve 3G smartphone begin at $29.99 when added to any Nationwide voice plan. Customers will receive the mail-in rebate in the form of a debit card; upon receipt, customers may use the card as cash anywhere debit cards are accepted.
