Doug at BlackBerry Cool posts that according to a tipster named Rogersdude, the black-colored variant BlackBerry Curve soon to be sold by Rogers Wireless in Canada will be the GPS-enabled BlackBerry 8310.
Word is it that Rogers has felt they've underpromoted the original Curve in favor of the BlackBerry 8800.
"The Curve still ended up performing beyond expectations, however, while the 8800’s performance was lackluste," Doug writes, (so)Rogers doesn’t want to make the same mistake twice and is going to heavily promote the device.
The 8310 launch will probably happen several weeks time after the BlackBerry Pearl 2 launch, scheduled for Rogers in mid to late September, and on AT&T about a week before that.
Can't have too many launches too close together!
