RIM unveiled 3 new models of the Blackberry Curve yesterday and all of them run on the new Blackberry 7 OS, which has quite a lot of new features. The company hasn’t been doing well in terms of sales or users, the number has been decreasing from some time, as Android and iOS are growing rapidly. However, RIM wants to come back in to the game and with the launch of 3 new Curve models, they just might have some better luck.
The new Blackberry Curve models launched include the 9370, 9360 and 9350 all of whom look strikingly similar. There isn’t much difference between the three models, just some hardware and Network variations. The new Curves are among the slimmest Blackberry’s available similar to the recently launched 9930 and 9900 Bold variants. The Curve 9370 is a dual-mode GSM/CDMA device, the Curve 9360 is a GSM only variant whereas the 9350 is a CDMA device. All the phones also weigh about 99grams, making them really light too.
Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO of RIM stated in the Press Release;
“These new models will build on the incredible success of the BlackBerry Curve line and further expand the largest global launch of BlackBerry smartphones in our history”. “The new BlackBerry Curve smartphones are absolutely stunning and offer a significant performance upgrade with an unmatched mobile social experience for the millions of feature phone users in the market as well as our existing Curve customers.”
