This QWERTY device comes with a 3.2-inch display, 2-megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, 256MB internal memory expandable via microSD card, dedicated media keys, optical trackpad, CDMA connectivity, and runs on OS 5.0. In a nutshell, this is basically the CDMA variant of the BlackBerry Curve 8520 which is currently available on Rogers. The Telus BlackBerry Curve 8530 is retailing for $49.99 on a 3-year contract, $249.99 on a 2-year contract, and $299.99 for a single year contract. Outright purchase price is set at $349.99.

If you’re not such fan of Telus, you can likewise get the Curve 8530 from Bell which is selling it slightly cheaper on 3-year and 2-year contract terms. However, if you plan to sign up for a single year contract or just buy the handset outright, Telus has the better deal.

UPDATE: Telus has lowered the 3-yr contract price of their BlackBerry Curve 8530 to a very affordable $24.99. Read more about it here.
