Yesterday, RIM announced three new BlackBerry 7 smartphones: Torch 9810, Torch 9850, and Torch 9860. None of them is made for budget-conscious users, so one may wonder if the company still plans to introduce any affordable handsets soon. You know, a new Curve, for example.
Well, we don’t know how soon it’s going to be introduced, but the next Curve is most likely the BlackBerry Curve 9360, unveiled yesterday by UK-based website OneMobileRing. Previously seen in a leaked Bell roadmap, the 9360 should feature a 2.4 inch HVGA non-touch display, BlackBerry OS 7, HSPA, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm headset jack, and an 800MHz processor.
You can see the Curve 9360 below, compared to the old Curve 9300 in the first two photos, and the Bold Touch 9900 in the third one.
Since Bell expects to introduce the new BlackBerry Curve 9360 in Canada in September, the handset may become available in the US and Europe and about the same time.
