announcement, Canadian wireless startup Mobilicity disclosed that it has made an addition to its product lineup, with the availability of Research in Motion (RIM)’s new BlackBerry Curve 3G smartphone.

The Curve 3G, which is technically called the Curve 9300, can now be purchased full-price from Mobilicity; that too at a cheaper cost than the ‘big three’ Canadian Carriers - Rogers, Bell, and Telus.

Since Mobilicity, unlike Rogers and Telus, does not subsidize its devices by requiring customers to sign a service agreement, the Mobilicity handsets are an attractive option for customers who wish to go in for an economical plan with month-to-month billing.

The cost of the new BlackBerry Curve 3G from Mobilicity is $299.99, sans a contract; as against the handset’s contract-free cost of $329.99 from Telus, and $349.95 from Bell. As such, the availability of Curve 3G from Mobilicity will give the carrier’s customers the opportunity to own a BlackBerry smartphone without shelling out $450 for the more advanced BlackBerry Bold 9700.

Some of the key features of the Curve 3G include a full QWERTY keyboard, a 480 x 360 pixel display, 2-megapixel digital camera, and built-in Wi-Fi. In addition, the handset, which boasts 3G mobile data capability, features an optical trackpad and dedicated media keys.
