RIM started facing heat of growing competition from Android and iPhone but their recent cut in employees and revised market strategy was acceptance of loss. Since then everyone was eager to see what BlackBerry do as an improvement in its product offerings.
RIM just announced three new mobile handsets which are nothing but updated and polished versions of old BlackBerry Curve. They features a thin, 0.43 inch frame and BlackBerry 7 OS under the hood. If you go deep inside, there is a 2.44 inch, 480×360 pixel screen, 512 MB of RAM, an 800 MHz CPU, and a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and VGA video recording functionality. Other common features include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and NFC support.
The three handsets are numbered as 9350, 9360 and 9370. The only difference is connectivity options. The 9350 is CDMA-only, 9360 supports GSM and UMTS while 9370 supports both GSM and CDMA. All these models will be available in Canada starting this month while other countries needs to wait till September.
