Behold, the BlackBerry Curve 9360 has landed the Philippines via carriers and authorized retail channels at an SRP of Php16,990. This is an upgrade of the previously loved BlackBerry Curve 8520 and 9300.
For those who witnessed the launching of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 a few weeks ago, you might have decided to switch to BlackBerry because of its elegance and powerful communications features. However, one thing keeps you from doing so -- the price.
But with the BlackBerry Curve 9360, not only do you get the a great device for your usual mobile phone usage, but also the capability of exchanging messages in a faster and more efficient way through the use of BBM. Social networking applications are also there to help you connect with loved ones wherever you are.
Hastings Singh, Vice President of South Asia at RIM commented, “The new BlackBerry Curve 9360 is a stunning, easy-to-use smartphone that will appeal to Filipino customers who want to stay socially connected. The Curve family of smartphones has been very popular in the Philippines and we expect the new BlackBerry Curve 9360, with all of its major enhancements, to be well received by new customers as well as existing BlackBerry Curve users looking to upgrade.”

When I personally saw the BlackBerry Curve 9360, it looked very similarly to the current BlackBerry 9700 sans the keypad design, which is still the same as the Curve 8520 and 9300. It feels very light and sexy, and is very much recommendable for people who are just looking on starting their BlackBerry journey.
Give it a try and make that switch a reality.
