Three new BlackBerry Curve phones launched

Canadian mobile phone manufacturer Research In Motion has introduced three low-end BlackBerry Curve handsets, in the Curve 9350, 9360 and 9370.

These three BlackBerry Curve mobile phones follow on from the largest launch in RIM’s history, where two weeks ago five devices were all unveiled at once – with the slider BlackBerry Torch 9810, the full-touch screen Torch 9850 and 9860, along with the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 handsets.

The BlackBerry Curve mobile phone will arrive with a non-touch 2.44-inch 480x360 screen, a Qwerty keyboard and optical trackpad – with a similar set of dimensions to last year's Curve 3G 9300 handset at 109mm tall, 60mm wide, 11mm thick and 99 grams in weight. As a comparison, the 9300 came in at 109x60 x13.9 mm and weighing in at 104grams.

The new Curve arrives with NFC capabilities and the new BlackBerry 7 OS, a 5 megapixel camera and an 800MHz processor, where the 2010 phone shipped with a 624Mhz variant, a 2MP camera and 256MB RAM/ROM - both of which has been doubled to 512MB.

RIM’s BlackBerry 9360 is their GSM version that is coming to the UK in September, where the 9350 is solely geared up for the American CDMA arena and the 9370 can work in both the USA and elsewhere in the world.

One Mobile Ring exclusively published a hands-on walkthrough of the BlackBerry Curve 9360 two weeks ago, a whole fortnight before the device was actually launched – which can be seen here.
