Blackberry 9900 and 9360: RIM is doing it right!

With the smartphone war getting more and more competitive, the like of Apple and Android are predicted to dominate the market with RIM, Palm, Nokia and Microsoft all falling one by one. But currently, there are signs of Nokia and Microsoft fighting back hard and RIM is also not in a position to give up. With the new devices announced by RIM, it is certain that they will give a good fight to the big shots. These devices, especially the Bold 9900 (high end device) and Curve 9360 (budget device) looks very promising.


Bold 9900
-640 x 480 pixels, 2.8 inches (~286 ppi pixel density)
-Touch-sensitive controls
-8GB storage, 768 MB RAM
-5 MP, 2592×1944 pixels, LED flash
-BlackBerry OS 7.0
-1.2 GHz QC 8655 processor
-NFC support

Curve 9360
-480 x 360 pixels, 2.44 inches (~246 ppi pixel density)
-Touch-sensitive optical trackpad
-512 MB storage, 512 MB RAM
-5 MP, 2592х1944 pixels, LED flash
-BlackBerry OS 7.0
-800MHz processor
-NFC support

As you can see, the Curve 9360, being a budget smartphone, does not seem “budget” at all. It has most of the things it’s big brother has only losing out on a touch screen and processor speed. The Curve is definitely a very good value for money. I would recommend the Curve more than the Bold.

These are the reviews (Bold 9900 and Curve 9360) from tech radar for those who are interested for more details on these devices.
