BlackBerry Curve 9330 coming to Sprint Sept 26, will get BBOS 6 upgrade later

Last month, we talked about the likelihood that a replacement for the BlackBerry Curve 8530 — known as the Curve 9330 — would come to Sprint sometime soon.

Well, hey now, look at this! A shiny Press Release confirming a September 26 release date!

The device packs 512MB on-board memory plus a MicroSD slot (with 2GB included card) for the media hungry, a 2MP camera, WiFi b/g/n, and Bluetooth with A2DP.

It will initially run BBOS 5, but will get the bump to BBOS 6 sometime in 2011.

The phone will run $49.99 (after a $100 mail-in rebate) on a two-year contract come September 26th from Sprint’s direct sales channels (Business, phone and web), and from October 10 everywhere else.
