To no one's great surprise, given that it is already selling the Curve 8900 in Germany, T-Mobile has announced that will be offering the latest RIM BlackBerry Curve business smartphone in the UK.

What is surprising is that T-Mobile will start selling the handset from tomorrow - a week ahead of network operator rival 02.

The announcement follows confirmation earlier this week that 02 and The Carphone Warehouse will be selling the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 from next week.

The Wi-Fi-enabled handset also supports GPRS, Edge and Bluetooth. It comes with GPS navigation and BlackBerry Maps, has a proper Qwerty keypad, a 2.4in QVGA screen and comes with a 3.2Mp camera and a microSD card slot.

The BlackBerry Curve business smartphone range is one of RIM's most popular.
