Word on the street is that RadioShack, or, The Shack, as they like to think of themselves these days, is now carrying the Sprint BlackBerry Curve 8530. You can pick it up for $29.99 on a new 2-year Sprint Everything plan with data or $49.99 on an upgrade.

This is a really good deal on a really good smartphone. It’s also one of the reasons that I am certain that Apple, with their current model of selling iPhones, will never dominate the U.S. smartphone market, although many an iPhone user already thinks Apple does… I digress, however, and will leave that for another post.
