The BlackBerry 9310 is now out on Straight Talk for just $130 outright, which for anyone that has purchased a BlackBerry device on a plan will know is a real bargain. This phone is using the Verizon network for coverage (thanks Mr. Sweeper for the research) and will likely the best built phone since that Nokia E71 came out on Straight Talk. Blackberry phones are tough phones and really are worth considering if you’re tired of Android phones or want a high-end phone with more of a professional desktop computer like interface.
Blackberry has struck a deal with Tracfone to bringing out the Blackberry 9310 under Straight Talk. This phone failed to capture in a shifting customer base that has since shifted to Android and iPhone touch screen phone technologies.
This phone will be a good one to get when it comes out on Straight Talk because the quality of Blackberry phones is pretty hard to beat and the touch pad isn’t too hard to use.
So if you’re in the market for a Smart Phone without a touch screen, this phone is as good as it gets. Presumably now that Apple and many other manufactures are now with Straight Talk, it was only time that Blackberry would try to move some of these phones that are seen as an older technology out the door.
This phone is already available on Boost prepaid, and will most likely be using the same network that being Sprint. So keep an eye out for this phone in Walmart stores soon, should be under $100. Verizon Network, $130
