BlackBerry Curve 9360

BlackBerry has released a number of phones in the recent months and the new 9360 Curve is the phone set to be released in September.

The device is set to be orientated at the youth market and so comes in at a lower price than the Torch models the company has pushed in recent months. So, how does the lower cost BlackBerry perform?

The phone comes with an 800MHz processor, which we found to be quite sharp and didn’t really have too many lag issues. Clearly the larger 1.2GHz processor is far more ideal for gaming than this chip, but we found it fine for browsing and simple tasks.

The new BlackBerry comes with a quite small 2.44 inch screen, which sites above the phones QWERTY keyboard. The screen is a 480x360 HVGA display and it looks quite decent for its prices, though is nothing on the Android machines. BlackBerry has overlooked a touch screen on the 9360 and the device is an old fashioned one with no capacitive touch abilities – this may not impress kids who can opt for a cheap Android for a cheaper price.

The track pad is very accurate however and is fine for web browsing but the intuitive touch screen will always have the advantage in this area and the BlackBerry misses out.

The phones strongest point is its looks though. It is a very slim and sleek device and is one of the best BlackBerrys ever due to its curves and aluminium sides. The metallic edging and curved corners make it seem smaller than it is, and at 11mm thick it is hardly large. The phone’s buttons on the side are ingrained and it even has its own camera button for taking photos with the quite decent 5mp camera.

The Keyboard feels quite satisfying and is one of the best QWERTY boards we have used – then again BlackBerry has had lots of practice in this area.

The phone uses the quite good BlackBerry OS7 which we found to be nice, though the app store is a little limited and that may hinder popularity among the tech savvy. The BBM messaging feature however is ideal for teenagers, who if their friends have BlackBerrys can message for free – one of the strongest features of the phone for younger ones.

It seems BlackBerry is marketing this phone at teenagers and its sleek design, relative speed and BBM make it a hit.
