Vodafone updates BlackBerry pay as you go range

Mobile phone network Vodafone has added new Research In Motion BlackBerry handsets to their pre-pay range, in the form of the Curve 9300, the older 8520 and the Pearl 9105.

These new models ship with free access to the Internet, email and BlackBerry messenger until June 2011, as a part of the initial purchase price.

The BlackBerry Curve 9300, 8520 and Pearl 9105 are all available in black and the separate colours of Ruby, violet and Pink - respectively.

The older 8520 model has an attached price of £160, whilst the 3G variants of the 9300 and 9105 both cost £230.

These RIM handsets are on pay as you go tariffs on the recently revamped Get Text and Web plans, which we reported on earlier this week where a £10 top up comes with a 300 text message and a 500MB data allowance.

There's no news yet whether Vodafone will be stocking the new BlackBerry Bold 9780, although it's still early days for carriers as the phone was only announced last week.

The Research In Motion BlackBerry mobile phones are still available on Vodafone pay monthly tariffs, with the Curve 8250 on £20 a month and both the 9300 and the Pearl 9105 3G on £25 plans.
