BlackBerry Curve 9320 Specs

We haven't heard much at all about the BlackBerry Curve 9320, but it looks to be a new BlackBerry 7 device releasing in the next few months. It won't be anything too fancy, but it will be a lower cost device for emerging markets. The Curve 9320 will carry on the Curve name and is pretty much an upgraded Curve 9300 from the looks of things.

BlackBerry Curve 9320 Specifications


my girlfriend needs a new BB Curve and loves the designof the device, but the crappy resolution of 320x240 pixels is making this device not an option to choose. too bad!

There's the new 9350/9360/9370. They've got the same screen resolution as the 97xx series. That's the Curve with the decent screen.

not a bad idea to do a low end and a high end curve, kinda like the 9790 and 9900 high and low end bolds. good move rim.

I'm not sure if i'm reading about the Curve coming out in 2012 or the one that was released in 2009.

Guys, Remember these two new BlackBerry curves WILL NOT be sold in the North American markets, they were not designed for North American markets either.

320x240 resolution on the screen is pretty crappy... Along with the 3.2MP EDOF camera on it, if they did try to sell this in NA they would get laughed out of the store. :)

North America is not the world.

Ever heared about people who are not living like you?

more than 4 billions people in this world are poor. Why dont build phones for them? you are clearly talking about luxury problems. Sorry, you are NOT the WHOLE World.

There is a market for this device.

in dont like this device(slightly better screen and its okay for me), but if RIM decides do conquer new markets in africa or south-east asia and south america with this product. Okay.
In these areas also cheap androids are sold and not smartphones like a Galaxy S2, Bold 9900s or even Apples Smartphone...

The differences between the 9320 and 9220 are so minute, it should just be one phone. the R&D involved in producing to separate phones is such a poor business decision. How much more could this phone possibly be than the 9220? The 9220 should be axed and just stick with the one low end phone. Having 2 is just more ways to confuse consumers.

They must expect the slight increase in R&D costs from having a 2G variant will be more than offset by the increase in sales in less developed markets where those few dollars they save could be crucial for market positioning.

Consumers won't be getting confused because most countries won't bother taking both models and most of those that do, probably don't stock higher end models.

Why can't they at least use hspa+ 14.4... and why keep using EDoF cameras when they are going to change it later. It just creates more device fragmentation and problems with stuff like banking apps.


The End.
Move on.

Just because a device is for emerging markets doesn't mean it has to have the lowest specs possible... Also since when are Curve devices not marketed in the US? The sad part is the US versioned Curves don't have much better specs than this does, so...

Yes it does. If it didn't have these low specs it'd be the same as the 9360, which is already sold in emerging markets to the wealthier. This phone is meant to be cheap, that's the point.

Do we really need new "entry level" Curve BlackBerries? I mean I have the Torch 9850, which is supposed to be more of a "power house" than all the Curve's, and though I like mine, it no where near competes with the technology that's out there. It almost seems no faster than my old Storm 9550, and it almost lags more. So now they're putting out like 5 phones that are slower and have lower specs? I just don't get it. Almost all my friends that abandoned blackberry had a Curve, and it made them hate it because they were so cheap and crappy. I think Blackberry needs to put out phones that people are going to want to stick with.

There is clearly a market for a lower end curve than the 9360 because carriers are still offering the 8520 and 9300 on payg deals, so this model seems intended to push those two out so that RIM can EOL them and move everything onto os7 or qnx by the end of this year.

I don't understand how these new phones can be so upsetting to some people. Just don't buy them, and wait for the BB10 phones that are coming out by the end of the year; problem solved.

I guess it's fair they're trying to reach emerging markets. I just feel like designing these phones takes away from time they could spend making great phones. How many refurbished bold's or old curve's or storms could they send to the "emerging markets" instead? Most of them were spec wise the same thing. I do love blackberry but I think it's crazy that 3 years after I bought my first storm, I get a new phone that other than a couple major software improvements, runs almost exactly the same. Might I add, when I had a storm 2 with the latest 5.0 OS, it was almost as fast as my torch. Google maps actually ran better.

I really doubt much time is spent making these phones, seeing as how they're pretty much just an updated version of the current Curves.

This isn't a bad Curve, it is meant to be CHEAP! Also, if it has the same CPU as the 9360 it really is quite good. If this comes to NA I see it heading straight to prepaid for $99.

so you can officially wave bye to the will be eol.9220/9320/9360/9350/9370 will now carry the curve name.also any carriers still distrubuting the 8520/8530 will stop and it also will be eol.

QVGA ¿SERIOUSLY? I think RIM really wants to fail! No smartphone in the second decade of the 21st century should be released with less than HVGA. QVGA is a resolution for dumbphones.
