BlackBerry Curve 9350

At the start of the month, Rim launched a clutch of new handsets which included the Bold 9900.

Not content with that little lot, today the company has announced another three smartphones, this time in the Curve range. All of which, as with the Bold and Torch models introduced at the start of August, will have OS 7 on board.

The new models are the BlackBerry Curve 9350, 9360 and 9370, all with a similar spec as you can probably guess from the slight variation of model numbers, and all designed to be affordable. Not to mention easy to use and adept at networking of the social variety.

Rim President Mike Lazaridis enthused: “The new BlackBerry Curve smartphones are absolutely stunning and offer a significant performance upgrade with an unmatched mobile social experience for the millions of feature phone users in the market as well as our existing Curve customers.”

The fresh Curves are designed with a slimline body, keyboard and optical trackpad, along with a 5 megapixel camera complete with flash. GPS and wi-fi are also on board, with a microSD slot for expanding the storage by up to 32GB.

NFC technology is packed in, with upgraded processors on previous Curves, although Rim didn’t specify exactly what speed engine these devices will be powered by.

OS 7 will also come with a number of pre-loaded apps, such as the premium version of Documents To Go for doc and PDF work, and BlackBerry Protect, which provides cloud back-up and other security measures.

Expect the new BlackBerry Curves to pop up next month.
