In recent, it’s really very hard to have pleasure from non QWERTY Blackberry smartphone but new QWERTY-less Blackberry Curve 9380 would make its aficionado. The new Blackberry Smartphone from RIM provides a great experience of Blackberry messenger and BBM Music at fingertips.
The new Blackberry Curve 9380 is extremely similar to its previous 9360 and, it might surprise, one can’t distinguish it from 9360 when viewed from back. The glossy finished of new Smartphone on front and back smear seems awesome as compare to previous dull-finished Blackberry phones like the Bold 9790.
The device is very thin and extremely portable to handle, however, there is no officially comment yet on its thickness. When we gauged; its thickness was around 10mm. The phone contains four buttons at the bottom—Call, Options, Back and Power—in addition to the optical track pad in the center.
The Smartphone contains a dedicated camera buttons beneath its volume rocker, which is very easy to locate without juggling around to locate it. Though, the camera is only 5MP but fast and the bright LED flash makes it more effective especially for social snaps—for quick viewing and sharing.
The charging is done via micro-USB port, which is designed on the left side of the phone and 3.5 mm jack located at top edge of phone is very helpful for expected search and essential button lock. On rear side at the bottom, a powerful speaker is designed to deliver good bass. Beneath, a microSD slot is fabricated which can withstand 32 GB of expandable storage. The 800 MHZ processor and 1230 mHz battery boot the phone in just a minute. Overall, RIM has, apparently, done a good job on handset with OS 7.
However, the negative aspect of the phone make it little off to a brilliant piece of device. The fluidity does not look in its browsing, which is little slow and occasionally unpredictable at provide detail web pages. The buttons along its right side need to have little modification to make it easier to press and handle. The least but more important, on-board application storage is poor as the new handset has just 120 MB free – especially when most of the phones are coming with minimum 512 MB.
The Blackberry’s new Smartphone might face the challenge from the entry level Android based Smartphones, and its three day outage in the last month is still quite fresh among consumer. Overall, the design and the feature of Blackberry is very impressive as compare to its previous non-QWERTY Blackberry handsets. Only point of consideration is the pricing as RIM never tagged its handsets for cut-throat competition. If Blackberry will launch the Curve with a price range similar to entry level (but good ones) Android- based handsets then its success is ascertained.
