Default Sprint now shipping the new updated Curve 8330A

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Sprint was out of stock for the past week on the Curve 8330 the rep advised me that they are due to receive a new Blackberry Curve with a updated chip-set that will be known as 8330A, however he did not have any specific information on what was updated in this new chip-set other then its more comparable now on the CDMA network, I just got a conformation on my order and indeed its listed as the 8330A while my prior orders listed only 8330, does anybody have any additional information on this newly revised chip-set?

I will confirm the software version when I receive it, but I assume it has V4.5

I have the worst luck w/phones...just bought my 1st BB ever yesterday, and it doesn't work properly. What state are you in? There are NO BB 8330 and some stores have been out 2 weeks already!

I just received my new phone and it's 8330m. It does come with 4.5.0.131, platform 3.4.0.25, but there's an update to that already!

I had a customer come in with the new one to do a phone book swap. From the few minutes that I had it I didn't notice anything different. Maybe it has new hardware chip. Nexttime I get enough time with one I will breakit down to the main board and compare components.

It probably is just with the new OS. I doubt the phone itself will be any different. Verizon did the same thing with their Curve when their OS was updated. The letter moniker is just a way to differentiate the older version with the new version. I doubt if there is a difference to the a or m model.
