New York, May 10th 2012: Blackberry announces new New BlackBerry 9320 Curve. Can't get enough of your Blackberry regardless of all those voices in the media saying Blackberry is dead? We agree with you. You say Blackberry; I say Crackberry. Bottom line, we love it!
The new BlackBerry 9320 is thinner than other models and it is a great way to get started to a smartphone with an affordable price tag. It will likely be offered by AT&T and T-Mobile in the US, although no official announcement has been made by those carriers. It is a GSM phone so it can be used globally. Its main novelty feature is clearly the dedicated button for Blackberry Messenger service (BBM). This allows you to access that very popular feature without having to finding and clicking on the BBM icon on previous models.
Th battery life on this phone is phenomenal, up to 18 days in stand-by. Sorry, the screen (320-by-240 resolution) is non-touch and it measures 2.44 inches. As most Blackberries it features a full back-lit QWERTY keyboard, and we are happy to report it sports the new BlackBerry 7.1 Operating System. The camera can capture videos and the definition for pictures is at 3.2-megapixels, which is good enough for printing them on a magazine.
Unlike its predecessor, the 9220, the new Curve sports a camera with LED flash as well as better screen and camera resolution. We particularly love its thinness (0.5 inches); it only weighs 3.63 ounces; as well as the fact that it can be used as a wi-fi hotspot. What we don't like: keys are not raised and it you have big hands it is somewhat clunky to typo. OTher than that it is a great little phone packed with smartphone features and highly social networking friendly.
