RIM unveils new BlackBerry Curve series

Research in Motion (RIM) has just announced three additions to the BlackBerry Curve series, namely BlackBerry Curve 9350, BlackBerry Curve 9360 and BlackBerry Curve 9370.

The three models differ on network connectivity options and available RAM of each device. Here in the Philippines, we'll be able to get our hands on the BlackBerry Curve 9360, since this is the GSM variant.

RIM's new Curve line aims to build on the incredible success of the BlackBerry Curve 8520 and BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300, and further expand the BlackBerry market both globally and here in the Philippines.

The BlackBerry Curve 9360 is the previously rumored Curve Apollo. It runs on BlackBerry 7 OS and is slightly thinner than the old Curve series. In addition, it sports a bigger resolution and display size, as well has a higher storage capacity. It also has a built-in support for NFC (Near Field Communications), a new technology that is enabling many exciting capabilities, including the ability to pair accessories or read SmartPoster tags with a simple tap of the smartphone.

BlackBerry Curve 9360 specifications:
  • Size: 109 x 60 x 11mm
  • Weight: 99g
  • Display: 480 x 360 pixels, 2.44 inches
  • Internal Memory: 512MB storage, 512MB RAM
  • Supports up to 32GB microSD
  • Has GPRS, EDGE, 3G, WLAN, Bluetooth, and microUSB v2.0
  • 5 megapixels camera, 2592x1944 pixels, LED flash
Target release of the BlackBerry Curve 9360 in the Philippines is this September.

Is it Blackberry Orlando? same actually

Hi! Nope, the BlackBerry Orlando is only a leaked version with Curve having touchscreen and qwerty keypads. The rumored names of 9350 and 9360 are Sedona and Apollo, respectively.

Hope this comes out cheaper than the Bold 9900. At least we now have more affordable options! Sakto pa sa birthday month ko ;)

Oh, I see. 
I have a problem with my BB, Some of my contacts  SMS messages have Exclamation point (photo below)  what does it mean?

Hmmm. I get that at times, too. I guess the sender's priority is set to High. It shouldn't be a problem.
