BlackBerry Curve 9220 simulator now available


This is RIM attempt to bring down there Curve costs in developing markets? If RIM licenses BBM to other phones wouldn't that make it almost useless to buy a BB when you could get a cheaper phone with it? HMM

I have no idea what this emulator has to do with licensing BBM (which would be a terrible idea).

That's true, but maybe it would turn the 9780 into a slow device, and slow would be "OK" on a Curve but not on a Bold.

No love for OS 6 users is right, i have the 9300, so the paper weight of the Curve Models, my battery would be gone in a day so i went back to OS 5.. loving every minute of it!

That statement is proof that you either haven't read or listened to anything from the call yesterday, or that you already forgot that they are pushing out low end devices to try and stay somewhat relevant.

I downloaded the simulator to my playbook. Is there a way to view it or even simply just try it out on playbook?
