In this day and age, having a 3G connection on your smartphone shouldn’t really be a selling feature. It should be a given, like saying that your smartphone has the ability to update Twitter or organize your schedule. Even so, it seems that one of the primary selling points of the new BlackBerry Curve 9300 is exactly that, since it is also marketed as the BlackBerry Curve 3G.
It’s not quite the BlackBerry Torch 9800 that we saw yesterday, but it is new. What you see here is the BlackBerry Curve 9300, which was formally announced for Rogers Wireless today. Also known a little more simply as the BlackBerry Curve 3G, this phone won’t ship with BlackBerry 6, but it is confirmed by our sources that it will be eligible for an upgrade at some point in the future.
