In amongst the barrage of Windows Phone 7 news coming in from all angles, Pocket-lint has just got word that Vodafone is now selling RIM's latest handset; the BlackBerry Curve 3G.

The device features a full-QWERTY keyboard, an optical trackpad, built-in GPS and Wi-Fi, as well as dedicated music media keys. It also features a 2-megapixel camera capable of shooting stills and video, as well as a microSD/SDHC slot that supports up to 32GB memory cards for media storage.

Vodafone has also given some pricing, saying that "The BlackBerry Curve 3G smartphone is available free on £25, 24 month price plans, including 500 minutes, unlimited texts [probably quite a lot, but no doubt limited], 500MB of mobile data and BlackBerry Email".

Although not yet available, the phone will be compatible with the BlackBerry 6 operating system when it comes out in the not too distant future.

Vodafone also states that the BlackBerry Curve 3G will be available in two colours "only at Vodafone", these will be a graphite grey and ruby red finish.
