Optus Selling BlackBerry Curve 8520 On Prepaid

LRG_BB_8520_CurveThis is great news. Great news. Optus is now selling the Blackberry Curve 8520 on prepaid. This opens Blackberry up to a whole heap of new users, like teenage girls and.. um... teenage boys? Oh, and possibly your mum.

The phone will set you back $399 up front, and you can get on a prepaid plan for as little as $30 a month, which gets you "unlimited* data with access to BlackBerry email, IM, social networking & Internet browsing". The asterisk means it's not actually unlimited at all, but restricted by "fair use" policies - I know, kind of misleading, but that doesn't mean it isn't a good deal for people wanting to develop a Blackberry addiction without a contract...
