BlackBerry Curve 9380 announced, the first ever Curve with a touchscreen
RIM has been embracing the inevitable this year, and outed touchscreen-equipped handsets with the latest BlackBerry 7 OS. Now it has gone in on its budget Curve series as well - RIM just announced the BlackBerry Curve 9380, which is the first ever Curve with a capacitive touch display.

The handset features a 3.2" display with 360x480 pixels, an 800MHz processor and a 5MP camera with flash and 720p HD video recording. Of course, onboard are BBM and all the usual BlackBerry software security features, that have made RIM's devices a favorite for enterprises and government agencies.

Asked about the ho-hum screen resolution, Carlo Chiarello, RIM's SVP of Handheld Product Management noted that it introduces some "tiering" among devices with the BlackBerry 7 OS, and has to do with tradeoffs between resolution and LCD quality.
