Blackberry’s Curve has long been devoid of a touchscreen. That is until today, as the company officially announced the Curve 9380, an all touchscreen affair. It has a 3.2-inch 480 x 360 display and a five megapixel camera (pictured on the right). It will ship with Blackberry’s OS 7, their latest and greatest. Unfortunately, that’s the only deets that RIM is dishing at the moment. However, they also served up some details on the Bold 9790.
The Bold 9790 sports a 2.44-inch touchscreen with a 360 x 480 resolution, optical mouse, 8GB of storage expandable via microSD card slot and a 1Ghz processor to boot. It too will ship with Blackberry’s OS 7 as well as support for NFC and augmented reality (these latter features will be available in the Curve 9830 as well).
In case you’re wondering, RIM will also pack in a number of free apps, which includes the Premium version of Documents To Go, Blackberry backup, Social Feeds 2.0, Facebook chat and the always necessary BBM.
You can expect both the Curve 9380 and the Bold 9790 to ship in the “coming weeks.”
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
