RIM (Research in Motion) has let slip a new gadget in the Curve range – a socially savvy smartphone with the numerical name 9320. We’ve seen this one here in the U.K before, thanks to the T-Mobile network who unofficially outted the mobile a few weeks ago. Now it’s surfaced through the official BlackBerry blog.
Pre-loaded with RIM’s latest BlackBerry OS 7.1 then handset comes with the traditional QWERTY keyboard for quick fire text typing over the BBM community, which for the first time on a BlackBerry model is easily accessible through a dedicated hardware button. Other features include a diminutive 2.44” screen, reasonable but basic 3.2-megapixel camera with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, rubberised function buttons, FM radio tuner and 512MB of internal storage with Micro SD support up to 32GB. Parental controls over contacts and social apps such as Facebook and Twitter is included.
It looks like the BlackBerry Curve 9320 is aiming to please the youth market again with a lower-to-mid range mobile that will be worth saving some pocket money for and suits the needs of its target market, but doesn’t really look to offer so much for us higher demanding tech users who are used to the iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy range.
No fixed release date for the BlackBerry Curve 9320 in the U.K as of yet but we do know it’ll arrive at some point this month costing around £14o sans contract. Gadget Helpline will keep this story updated!
