O2 to sell new BlackBerry Curve 9380 and Bold 9790 mobile phones

Former British Telecom mobile phone network O2 has made public that it will be carrying the new BlackBerryCurve 9380 and BlackBerry Bold 9790.

O2 declared its intentions from their ‘Coming Soon’ page on their main website, which denotes which phones are coming to the O2 network in the near future.

This webpage now has two new additions, the BlackBerry Curve 9380 and Bold 9790 that were both launched this week, and will arrive this month and early next year, respectively.

No prices have been made available as yet by O2 for the two devices, although they are carrying the Curve 9360 on pay as you go deals for £79.99 and on contracts for £21.50 – which could be matched on the Curve 9380 we believe.

One Mobile Ring caught up with Research In Motion this week for a private briefing on the two new BlackBerry devices. We have now published a hands-on walkthrough in pictures of the Bold here and a video walk through here, along with a walk through in images here of the Curve and on video here.
