Too bad i didn’t make it to this event, another “something came up” happened again and i apologized again to the good people at BlackBerry PH, please invite me again next time I promise i will show up on time.
Moving on, i’m really glad this new OS 7.1 Curve series has been launched locally as it was a really big step up for the aging Curve 8520 and 9300 that i presumed that is going to be replaced by the new Curve 9220 and 9320 base on the price range. Targeted at budgeted BlackBerry users, Curve 9220 and 9320 boast the latest BlackBerry OS 7.1 with a 2 megapixel camera, optical trackpad, built-in FM radio for all your favorite local radio stations, WiFi connectivity, microSD up to 32gb and a much longer battery life.
Though BlackBerry Curve 9320 is the more advanced and 3G version of the BlackBerry Curve 9220 with its added 3G connectivity feature, 3.15 megapixel camera and a LED camera flash.
