While you might have already seen this newest member of BlackBerry’s Curve family in the form of leaked pictures, it was only today that RIM finally announced the existence of the BlackBerry Curve 9320 to the world. The handset, which is an upgraded version of the existing Curve 9220 gets support for 3G networks – which is the major difference between this and the older model.
Like we said, images of the Curve 9320 were leaked over a month back. It was followed by leaked press shots of the same phone. On the features front, it is almost identical to that of the Curve 9220 like we mentioned earlier. Extra bits include 3G connectivity and a better 3.2 megapixel camera with flash. The display happens to be a 2.4-inch QVGA affair which might not sound very impressive in today’s age.
The phone gets 512 MB of RAM and the same amount of ROM. For memory expansion, there is a micro SD card slot as well. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth USB and GPS. The phone is powered using the same battery rated at 1450 mAh seen on the Curve 9220
The Curve 9320 runs BlackBerry OS. 7.1. The phone is expected to be available by June. An India launch too can be expected at around the same time. It would be interesting to see how BlackBerry prices the new Curve 9320 – which many expect to hover around the 12k mark. But then we hope RIM surprises us all with a much lower price tag!
