    Looks like we're going to have to shell out 270$ with an upgrade or new sign up and tacked on rebate.

    They didn't say too much else. No word on wifi or anything...unless I missed that. Anyways, a little news is better then none.

    Verizon's CTIA Phone Lineup: Remakes and Sequels

    BlackBerry Curve 8330 - I love a good Curve as much as the next guy, especially one with EV-DO and SDHC support for MicroSDs up to 8GB. But it's going to be a hard one to squeeze in between the $200 Pearl and the $300 8830 World Edition - $270 after a $50 mail-in rebate

    That's cheap if that's MSRP. Too bad you won't get the Mail-In rebate unless you sign a contract. For some reason that just doesn't sound like the right price. Where's the usual $699 pricetag Verizon is always trying to dish smartphones at?

    yeah, i'd bet MSRP is closer to $400 to $500, no? i think pearl's around $419. w/out rebate/upgrade i talked em down to $229 last year when it first came out. i would advise those wanting to switch to do the same (if you don't have upgrade allowance).

    If its $270 after discounts I'd hate to see what full retail's going to be.

    I got the pearl 8130 last week for $150 + tax=~ $200 (because they tax you on the retail price).

    The above included a $50 credit toward a new phone that you get every 2 years with verizon.

    But then I also have a $50 mail in rebate.

    Verizonwireless.com says that the 2 yr. contract price is 299.99 before $50rebate for the pearl, which is only 20 dollars less than the noted upcoming curve price (269.99+50=319.99)

    So if I can get the same discounts I got with the pearl, then I'm expecting to pay 170+ tax=~230 upfront, and then also get a $50 mail in rebate, so around $180 total.

    Trading in your 8830 will get you an additional $100.00 also.

    Looks like Verizon raised the price of their Internet/Email package in anticipation of the Curve.

    BIS(non-enterprise service) used to be only $30/month. It appears that they just have one price for the email bundle, which is the same as the other PDA phones.

    I liked the fact that the BB email was cheaper but I guess you can't do much about it if you don't already have a BB plan with Verizon.

    Wait, so no one ever answered the trade in thing. You get $100 off if you trade in an 8830? Can you trade in two at the same time? Do they have to be in good condition?
