T-Mobile announces the affordable Curve 9315
T-Mobile has announced the most affordable BlackBerry in its line-up, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 9315. As you can guess, this QWERTY-equpped smartphone will run on the BlackBerry 7.1 OS and will feature a number of not-so-mind-blowing extras.

The BlackBerry Curve 9315 is the T-Mobile variant of the Curve 9310, which has been available with Verizon and other carriers for quite some time. It sports a modest 2.44" display with QVGA resolution, 3.2MP camera with flash, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity.

All in all, the 9315 isn't something particularly exciting, but we guess it might be appealing for the young crowd or those users who enjoy physical QWERTY keyboards.

Pre-orders for the device will begin on January 16. The phone will become available a week later, on January 23. Whoever wants to purchase the BlackBerry 9315 will have to shell out $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate card, and put their signature on a two-year service agreement.

Id still use one of these for business use. You dont need bright colored phones and icons to make money. This wouldnt be my personal phone.

So... already in 2013...

qwerty phone... for some people is still useful... BUT

touch screen? nope
camera of 3.2 mp? WTF
any mention of gps and/or glonass? minor WTF

Samsung, LG, Motorola... they all have qwerty candybar phones with better specs and better pricing than this crap...

I used to love RIM but ever since I left them in 2010 they froze in tech-world
