For those looking for info regarding the upcoming release of Koodo Mobile’s BlackBerry Curve 8530… read on. We’ve been informed from one of our tipsters that this will officially be available on May 25th for the no-contract price of $300, or you can also get this for $150 on the Tab. This will only come in one colour: Silver.
Regarding the plans. We’ve mentioned rumours of these before but you can now see confirmation by the brochure below that will be available next week. There will be two BlackBerry Add-on to the plans at launch: Blackberry Social for $10/month that includes Unlimited BlackBerry Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Facebook, Twitter etc. The second Add-on Blackberry Connect for $25/month that gives you Up to 500MB of Email, Unlimited BlackBerry Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, Facebook, Twitter etc. A Blackberry plan MUST be added on to purchase the device.
In addition, the previous unlimited web browsing for “dumb-phones” has been replaced with 50MB of data ($10 per month). There’s also a 500MB of data add on option ($25 per month), which points to the launch of SIM cards and the addition of data if you bring in a device other then a Blackberry over to Koodo… so their HSPA network is coming up soon too!
