MetroPCS landed its first smartphone this week when it introduced the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8330. The handset has all the features you'd expect from a BlackBerry device, which is to say it goes far beyond the majority of MetroPCS phones. Inside you'll find messaging and e-mail, a personal organizer, a 2-megapixel camera, a music player, 3G support, voice commands, a memory card slot, and stereo Bluetooth. Only the red model is available, but you get the same roomy keyboard.
