Blackberry mania has taken over the world. Blackberry Curve 9360 is one of the most sleek and stylish smartphones available in the market. This smartphone runs on the Blackberry 7 operating system, the latest OS introduced by Research in Motion (RIM), the manufacturer of Blackberry. The Curve 9360 has a thickness of just 11mm and has the default BB Curve qwerty keypad. RIM has not altered the optical trackpad in any way. The camera of the Curve 9360 is also commendable; 5 megapixel with LED flash offering great picture clarity along VGA video recording. The quick camera button placed at the side of the phone is a very smart idea as you can fire up the camera with a simple button click. Another key feature of the Blackberry Curve 9369 is the customizable button placed between the volume keys, it is an excellent utility as you can set it for quick music play or any other function. With a screen resolution of 480X360, the Curve 9360 is a better choice than its predecessor Curve phones. The high HVGA resolution offers greater clarity as compared to the previous smartphones of the Curve series.
Pricing and availability:
The manufacturer, RIM has not declared the price for the BB Curve 9360 yet. There is speculation that the new Curve 9360 will fall in the price range of the other Curve phones.
The Curve 9360 will be a worthy successor to the Curve league phones, in terms of technology, handling and quality. This smartphone will enable you to make shopping transactions through your phone thanks to the Near Field Communication (NFC) mechanism. This phone relies on the Blackberry 7, the latest RIM operating system. The device also has a significantly improved CPU which makes this smart phone much faster and reliable. The metallic framework design make this phone a treat to possess, the improved solid look of the 99 gram-weighing Curve 9360 is surely an incentive. This device is also much sleeker than its predecessors of the Curve series with dimensions of 109 x 60 x 11mm only. RIM has also worked on the display quality to a major extent. This new device offers better video playback and better display. The qwerty keyboard is the same with rubbery-plastic keys just like the previous handsets in the Curve series. Blackberry Messenger 6 in the Curve 9360 is also open to development by third parties. BBM 6 will also enable a map function using which the user will easily be able to locate other BBM users.
What’s not so great?
The resolution could still be worked on by RIM; the image quality is not as sharp as the other phones available in the market with similar features. The video recording is also not much evolved; the video can be recorded only in VGA format and is average in quality. The internal memory of the Curve 9360 is also comparatively small. The set is available in basic colors only. Not many color options are available for this phone. Not much can be said about the battery life considering the poor response of the previous Curve series smartphones. In the age of touch screen phones, this set still relies on the old track pad for mobility.
The Blackberry Curve 9360 is surely going to excite the Blackberry users with its sleek, smart and designer looks. It is a must-have for those who wish to be socially active with the BBM 6. The classic qwerty keypad makes texting easy and trouble-free. The rubbery plastic keypad keys of the Curve 9360 make it all the more user friendly. The Near Field Communication feature enables you to make shopping transactions anytime with just a few button clicks. Dominant graphics of this new device make browsing experience much better. Smoother scrolling helps you access applications and things quickly while you are online. With better resolution, gaming, web browsing et cetera will be much more enjoyable.
