Sprint to add new BlackBerry models
by David Stellmack on05 April 2010
9650 and 8230 in the pipeline for arrival soon
Sprint looks to be adding two new BlackBerry models. Sources tell us that stores and dealers are being told to expect both the 9650 and 8230 soon. The move to add new BlackBerry models by Sprint really comes as little surprise, seeing how they have not added any new BlackBerry models in some time. Sources tell us that Sprint business customers have been asking for additional new BlackBerry units to replace aging models in their corporate inventories and would prefer a newer and more up-to-date model.
While we don’t yet know the exact specifics as far as the delivery date, we expect it to be soon, as it is already showing up on the Sprint warehouse order screen. One interesting thing of note is that we expect the 9650 to be offered in both a camera and no camera version. No word on pricing yet, either, but we expect that it will be in line with other BlackBerry offerings when they are first released on Sprint.
