RIM finally confirms the existence of its latest budget BlackBerry, the Curve 9320
The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is now official after RIM finally raised the curtain on the device, and while many things remain the same, the newest addition to the cheap and cheerful Curve range looks to be a fair improvement on models past.
The device features a 2.1-inch, non-touch QVGA screen, a 3.1-megapixel camera and also offers a tweaked, four-row QWERTY keyboard. Other features include Wi-Fi, GPS, A-GPS, HSDPA and a chunky 1450mAh battery, which should keep the little workhorse chugging along for ages on a single charge.
RIM is clearly aiming the 9320 at younger users, and its BlackBerry OS 7.1 software will offer pre-loaded apps for Twitter and Facebook. The device also features a dedicated hardware key to allow speedy access to the company's vaunted BBM service, and of course, the device's camera.
In terms of running gear the new Curve isn't anything to write home about, with an 806MHz CPU and 512MB of both RAM and ROM. But let's be honest; no one is going to be eyeing one of these devices based purely upon its hardware!
There's no word yet on pricing or availability but we don't expect it to be too long before this bullet proof little messenger rocks up in stores, so keep your eyes skinned.
