T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8900 now available for $199.99

Summary:I posted my thoughts on the T-Mobile BB Curve 8900 a couple of weeks ago and today you can pick one up at T-Mobile for US$199.99 after $200 instant rebate and $100 mail-in rebate. If I was able to use a BlackBerry with my work account and didn't mind giving up my T-Mobile G1 then I would be all over the Curve 8900. It doesn't have 3G, but for email and basic surfing EDGE is just fine and it is much more prevalent on T-Mobile than 3G. In addition, you can use WiFi to connect to any T-Mobile HotSpot or other WiFi access point you have permission to use.
