    Blackberry and Android Phones for Straight Talk?

    Hey check this out! Looks like the new Blackberry 8520 Curve for Straight Talk and the HTC Aria with Android...

    The Tilt and Tilt 2, for those that don't know, are Windows Mobile phones.

    Links to all four phones (more information, but no ST confirmation):
    Blackberry Curve 8520: http://www.gsmarena.com/blackberry_curve_8520-2889.php
    HTC Tilt: http://reviews.cnet.com/smartphones/...-32638455.html
    HTC Tilt 2: http://www.htc.com/us/products/tilt-2-att
    HTC Aria: http://www.wireless.att.com/answer-c...ionId=KB110410

    If this is true, I'm excited! Especially for the Blackberry: may make it competitive for switching over to Straight Talk. Also glad they're all GSM (in my case, anyways, since AT&T has better service than Verizon for me.)
    Internet at work and with a Nexus 4 on Straight Talk with AT&T.

    Yeah sorry I didn't specify that the Tilt and Tilt 2 were Windows phones....I found them afterwards and really couldn't change the subject line. I hope they do come out for ST....I had planned on getting an E71 but when I learned they were about to release new phones I decided to wait.

    If this is true, can't wait to see the pricing. I'll make the jump from AT&T for the Aria. $45 Unlimited + Aria (Android) = Awesome!

    Not just an Android phone, but one that's actually decent? Wow, next thing you know Straight Talk will start selling just the SIM, complete with a complimentary microsim trimmer, lol.

    I had the Tilt & the HD NOT going back there, but definitely interesting to see more competitive offerings.

    It will be interesting to see prices (300-400$?). Does it mean Nokia e71 will be on sale?
    BTW. BlackBerry 2G only. Kinda outdated.

    My guess:
    The Blackberry will be $199.99, with a surcharge per month due to BIS connectivity needed
    The Tilt will be no more than $149.99. The phone has an outdated OS, so I don't see this one being at a high price point.
    The Aria and Tilt 2 will both sell for either $249.99 or $299.99. I could see the Aria going for $199, but not lower than that. They're both quality smartphones.

    These tutorials have been on the Staighttalk site since last summer. No one has mentioned them in a long time. You may find the threads if you do a search on this HOFO Straightalk forum.

    This doesn`t mean they won`t be released but they were being discussed before there was any hint of the two Nokias.

    I can't see the tutorials. Am I doing something wrong?
