  • Unannounced BlackBerry Curve 9230 Gets Hands-On


    Back in January we reported that the unofficial upcoming 9230/9220 specs were leaked online via a couple RIM presentation slides. It looks like today the Curve 9230 is one more step closer to becoming reality for BB users, as Rajat Agrawal of BGR.in goes hands on with the device and reports:

    To begin with, the Curve 9320 feels just perfect – neither too tiny, nor too large. Though it is all plastic, it still felt good to hold and the quality of plastics used is much better than that found even on some high-end smartphones from Samsung. In all probability, there would be hardly any difference between the Curve 9220 and 9320 in terms of look and feel. The only difference being the camera and the absence of 3G in the 9220.

    The 9320 also had a BBM shortcut button on the left edge, which is quite handy (you can notice the slight bump on the left edge just above the calling key). In all probability, RIM could offer some free BBM plans when it launches the devices in India. The phones will run on BlackBerry OS 7.1 that comes with deeper BBM integration, especially when it comes to third-party apps. Our source, who has been using the phone, says the battery easily lasts over a day on a 2G network with heavy calling. I’m told these phones will also have FM radio, though I was not able to check it during my brief hands-on.
    The device is expected to be priced at about Rs 9,000 ($183), and it's 3G variant is expected to be right around Rs 12,000 ($244). Are you from India and consider getting one of these upcoming devices? Let us know!
