We’ve been hearing rumors that the BlackBerry Curve 8350i was going to be released today and it looks like those rumors were right.  Nextel users who have been waiting several years for a new device to hit the network made famous by Dircect Connect for can now rejoice as the 8350i is now up on Sprint’s site.

The BlackBerry Curve 8350i will set you back $149.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and features:

  • Nextel Direct Connect®
  • Group Connect
  • GPS enabled
  • Slim and fashionable
  • Web, email capable
  • Built-in camera
  • Speakerphone
  • Bluetooth
  • External display
  • Memory card slot
  • Voice dialing

I am guessing that the BlackBerry Curve 8350i will do quite well over on Sprint or Nextel or whatever they are calling themselves these days.  I doubt, however, that it will do well enough to turn that sinking ship that is Sprint around.
