Entry-level BlackBerry Curve 9320 is unannounced but photogenic
BGR India was able to get some hands on time with the unannounced BlackBerry Curve 9320. We first heard of this device in a roadmap for RIM that was leaked in January and now we have pictures of the entry-level device to stare at. The device is made of plastic and the battery will last all day even if used heavily, on a 2G network.

According to BGR India, the quality of the plastic used is better than the plastic used on some high-end Samsung models. There is a BBM shortcut key on the left edge of the phone and the handset has BlackBerry 7.1 OS installed. A source for BGR India says that the BlackBerry Curve 9320 comes with an FM radio although the site was unable to confirm that.

The BlackBerry Curve 9320 has a 2.44 inch screen with QVGA resolution (hey, we said it was an entry-level device) and a very low pixel density of 164ppi. 512MB of RAM is onboard and the microSD card allows for hot swapping with a maximum card size of 32GB. A 3.2 MP rear-facing camera is included.

This is strictly a model for the first time smartphone buyer, but should do well in India once announced and launched. In that country, RIM holds a 15% share of the market and is third behind Nokia and Samsung. Low-end models like the BlackBerry Curve 9320 are very popular in India.
