RIM introduces BlackBerry Curve 9320 with dedicated BBM key
On Wednesday, RIM introduced the BlackBerry Curve 9320, a new smartphone that not only features all of the usual BlackBerry message functions, but also appeals to those who are socially connected. The BlackBerry Curve 9320  features global 3G connectivity and what RIM calls a long lasting battery. Carlo Chiarello, Executive VP, Smartphone Business at RIM said, 
"The new BlackBerry Curve 9320 is designed to make it incredibly easy for users to stay socially-connected.. The new BlackBerry Curve 9320 will be especially popular with customers upgrading to a smartphone for the first time and existing Curve customers looking for a step up in speed and functionality."

A dedicated BBM key leaves you just one quick click from BlackBerry's social messaging network and the handset also offers a built-in FM radio allowing you to listen to your favorite tunes without using up data from your monthly plan. The battery life gives you up to 7 hours of talk time or 30 hours of FM radio talk and the BlackBerry Curve 9320 comes with some pre-loaded apps like Facebook and Twitter and Social Feeds 2.0 app is also pre-loaded allowing users to post to multiple accounts and get updates from RSS feeds, social apps and IMs all from one application.

The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is equipped with a 2.44 inch QVGA non-touchscreen display. The 164 ppi pixel density is nothing to get excited about while a single-core processor will be running the show. 512MB of RAM is on board and the microSD slot can accept cards up to 32GB.

The 3.2MP camera offers an LED flash, video capture and can geotag photos using the camera's GPS. Since the BlackBerry Curve 9320 comes loaded with BlackBerry 7.1 OS, it comes with mobile hotspot functionality. More information will be coming from participating carrier such as pricing, color options launch date and availability of Parental Controls. The latter is a way for parents to keep children away from inappropriate content. Press Release source: RIM via Crackberry

Still think the bold 9900/9930 has the best design from RIM ahh just thinking about it RIM so foolish they could have had a great device, but made it subpar. Sad. And it's still $199 on sprint's website. Crazy!

This will fail if it's priced anything higher than $99.99 on contract. Might even have to start at $49.99. It's an improvement to the Curve line, no doubt, but not enough of one to make it compelling over other rivals, unless one is a super hardcore "crackberry" addict

people here dont realize that RIM is stirring up BlackBerry10.. this is just an "entry level phone" which means this is for those who are just trying it out in the smartphone world..
even Samsung and all the other phone brands have entry level phones.. if only you guys coud be any smarter.. RIM is still the best OS.. Android is cheap..
