The BlackBerry Curve 9360 is an entry-level smartphone that was announced and launched in August 2011. The front face seamlessly integrates phone, menu, and back keys, and hosts a classic chicklet-style physical QWERTY keyboard. The Curve 9360 is one of the few BlackBerry smartphones with a headphone jack mounted on the top. That design theme only returned with the BlackBerry Z10.
The Curve 9360 was the second BlackBerry to ship running OS 7. The 9370 was preceded immediately by the Curve 3G 9300, which followed the 8500, 8900, and 8300 series, and was followed up by the Curve 9220, Curve 9320, and Curve 9380. Alongside the BlackBerry Curve 9360 were the Curve 9350 and the Curve 9370 for CDMA carriers. The only difference between the two is that the 9370 had 1 GB of internal storage instead of 512 MB.
