For anyone on Sprint, it looks like they will be launching the BlackBerry Curve 8530 this month. According to the document above, the launch date is December 18. Looking more closely at that date, you'll notice that it says "direct ship" next to it. This could mean one of two things. Either it means that is the date the device will be arriving at Sprint stores, or the date the device will be available to ship directly to your home. And it would appear that it will be available in two colors at launch, Purple/Violet (whatever you want to call that color), and Black. While no pricing is giving, I would be willing to bet it won't be more than $200.
