Sprint rolls out BlackBerry Curve 8350i smartphone


Sprint recently rolled out its BlackBerry Curve 8350i smartphone that is touted to be one of the most high tech push-to-talk BlackBerry smartphone ever, so we’ll have to take that claim at face value until it goes through our hands for a review. This smartphone will be powered by iDEN technology over the Nextel National Network, where users will be able to take advantage of Nextel Direct Connect, the only national push-to-talk service in the industry that offers sub-second call set up. Let’s take a look at what the BlackBerry Curve 8350i has to offer right after the jump.

You will find that the BlackBerry Curve 8350i will cater best to business-oriented people, where users will be able to access a large selection of GPS-enabled solutions as well as thousands of other third-party mobile applications. In addition, International Direct Connect will allow instant connections between the United States, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Peru. Talkgroup itself is able to bring together groups of up to 200 people simultaneously within the same local market and in the same fleet. According to David Chamberlain, principal analyst with analyst firm In-Stat, “Because of its unique combination of push-to-talk capabilities and several other advanced features, the BlackBerry Curve 8350i smartphone is likely to appeal to both individual consumers and business customers. The BlackBerry Curve 8350i smartphone can also address the needs of several industries such as construction, field services, transportation and manufacturing.”
