We first heard that the iDEN BlackBerry 8350i would be coming sometime in Q4 a couple of weeks ago, however, BlackBerry News is narrowing it down a bit and zeroing in on December 1st as a scheduled launch date.

The BlackBerry 8350i will be the first BlackBerry available to Nextel subscribers in several years. If Sprint can keep from messing this up, subscribers who simply refuse to move away from the original Push to Talk Network should flock to this device.
