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.
