Sprint BlackBerry Curve 9350 Delayed Until October!

We just came across the above tweet from Sprint stating that the “BlackBerry Curve 9350 Availability Shifted to October for Sprint Customers.” We are not 100% sure what caused the delay, but we do know a few Sprint customers that are really upset…

Due to unexpected circumstances, Sprint shifted the launch of the BlackBerry® Curve™ 9350 smartphone beyond the planned Sept. 9 availability date. It will now go on sale in October with a specific availability date shared at a later time.

The next generation of Research In Motion’s (RIM) popular BlackBerry Curve series of smartphones, BlackBerry Curve 9350, offers the latest BlackBerry operating system – BlackBerry® 7. It is a fast, affordable, easy-to-use, full-featured and socially connected smartphone.

BlackBerry Curve 9350 offers a full QWERTY keyboard and trackpad for easy one-handed navigation and keeps users connected by allowing them to easily share moments through pictures and videos via MMS, as well as by instant message with world-class IM services like BBM™ (BlackBerry® Messenger). With easy access to social networking sites like Flickr®, MySpace and Facebook®, this smartphone provides smooth integration to keep users up to speed on what’s happening in their personal and professional lives.
