Marketing material for MetroPCS BlackBerry emerge

In the next few weeks we’ll get the official announcement that MetroPCS will launch the prepaid BlackBerry Curve 8530, replacing the two-plus-year-old Curve 8330. Everything should remain the same, including the required plan. The biggest difference this time is that it will work on Metro’s AWS network, while the 8330 worked only in Legacy markets. PhoneNews.com has the information. Buyers will get a $50 rebate, but it comes in the form of a prepaid Visa card. So you’ll get $50 to spend wherever, but you’ll still be laying out $279.99 for the device regardless.
