BlackBerry Curve 9320 press shots surface

RIM’s upcoming low-end smartphone, the BlackBerry Curve 9320, hasn’t been announced yet, but has been spotted in the wild on a few occasions, once even with a blue paint job. Now, it looks like it has sat down for some official press shots.
There really isn’t anything here that will blow you out of the water, but The Verge did get a hold of three press images of the upcoming handset. As you can see it sports a classic BlackBerry design, complete with its ubiquitous QWERTY keyboard. The device does sport clean, curved lines, but overall, only BlackBerry fans will probably truly appreciate this device.
The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is rumored to sport a 2.44 QVGA non-touchscreen display, single-core processor, 512 MB RAM, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, microSD card slot, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. Rumors suggest this handset will be targeted at first time smartphone users. BlackBerry World is coming up next week, so we’ll probably get the official word then.

just die already, if your not going to release a competitive product than you need to just ride off into the sunset. At least palm went down fighting.

This is good for the typical texter who doesn't need/want anything special. RIM needs to launch a BB10 phone with at least dual-core, 1-1.5 GB of RAM, 8 MP camera with good software and lens, and the BB10 interface itself needs to be fresh and innovative in order for it to pull itself out of the grave. It should be kind of like what HTC is doing for the One series, except with Blackberry. Curve for a low-end, not anything special device, Bold for a mid-range device more openly viewed by the masses who don't want to give up the QWERTY, and the Torch for it's flagship, appealing to the spec loving people and those who are more comfortable with full touchscreen. All launched at practically the same time, and repeat that process around when a year has passed. Then, they might make a comeback of the ages.

Looks the same as any other blackberries. RIM: Just please make a device more similar to the Bold 9930 with huge spec improvements and I WILL buy (preferably white with a WHITE track pad)

A white trackpad probably will not happen because the trackpad operates by your moving your finger over a tiny infrared camera that according to a BB rep a few years back, also had the capacity to read fingerprints if the software supported it. Putting an opaque white surface on it would render it useless with its current hardware state. http://blogs.blackberry.com/20
