Blackberry_curve_alltel_frontnoshadScore a possible point for Alltel Wireless, the scrappy CDMA carrier in the southeastern section of the United States. Turns out that Alltel might beat out larger competitors Sprint and Verizon Wireless by being the first to roll out the BlackBerry Curve 8330 on May 1. It should all even out in the end though as the 8330 is likely to follow on Sprint and Verizon’s network later in the month.Alltel says that you can nab an 8330 for $229.99 after $100 mail-in rebate if you’re a new customer adding two-years of service. The BlackBerry Curve 8330 offers a 3.5 mm headset jack, Bluetooth 2.0, full QWERTY keypad, GPS, 2-megapixel camera with video recording support, and microSD/SDHC slot. Sounds like a healthy feature-set to me; might be time to get a BlackBerry review device to put it through the paces.
