Lost amidst the uproar and faux panic of what some media outlets are describing as RIM being on it's "last legs", Research In Motion has released the BlackBerry Curve 9320 in India. Not too bad for being in "trouble".
Mumbai, India - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced a stylish new smartphone for socially-connected customers in India. The new BlackBerry® Curve™ 9320 smartphone features all the core BlackBerry messaging and social-centric features that keep people connected, and it offers global 3G connectivity backed by long battery life to allow users to make the most of their day.
“The BlackBerry Curve series is extremely popular and successful in India and we are excited to bring the new BlackBerry Curve 9320 to customers here. This new Curve model is designed to make it incredibly easy for customers to be socially-connected, and we expect it will be especially popular in the youth segment,” said Sunil Dutt, Managing Director, India at Research In Motion.
The BlackBerry Curve 9320 has everything a customer needs to stay connected to the people and things that matter most to them. It features the best keyboard in its class for quick and easy typing and even includes a new, dedicated BBM™ key. It also includes a built-in FM radio, allowing customers to tune into their favorite local stations, and listening to the FM radio does not require a data plan or use data services. Designed to allow both 3G connectivity and long battery life, customers can get up to 7 hours of talk time or up to 30 hours of FM radio listening or music playback with headphones.
Customers can easily interact with their social network in real time, using preloaded apps for Facebook® and Twitter®.
