BlackBerry Curve 9360 pricing for Rogers confirmed

BlackBerry Curve 9360 pricing for Rogers confirmed
A leak of a Rogers Product Launch Flyer for the BlackBerry Curve 9360 reveals that the carrier plans on offering the phone for $49.99 with a signed 3-year contract, a traditional contract length for handsets in the country. If you only want to be locked up for 2 years, Rogers will sell you the device for $99.99, and if you only want to sign a 1 year pact with the BlackBerry Colt on the way, it will cost you $149.99. Without a contract, Rogers will charge you $349.99 for the phone.

While the BlackBerry Curve 9360 will run on the new BlackBerry 7 OS and offer the faster second gen WebKit browser, the handset is not a touchscreen model. It has a 2.44 inch display with resolution of  360 x 480 which works out to 246 dpi. A "narrow" physical QWERTY keyboard  is under the screen with an optical trackpad. Under the hood is an 800MHz processor with a 5MP camera on back with flash and a microSD card will accept as much as 32GB of additional storage.

According to the leaked document, Rogers says that the BlackBerry Curve 9360 is aimed at those first time smartphone buyers and the youth who are "attracted to the status and capability of an upgraded smartphone". We can tell those rookie smartphone users and the "youth" that there is no date yet for the launch of the phone, although we would suspect that it shouldn't be too long since we are already in the Back to School season.
