BlackBerry Curve 9320 GSM Review, Full Specifications
For the user always on the go, BlackBerry devices are the answer. A top favorite for any executive and salesperson interested in excellent voice call quality, fast and easy communication and BlackBerry Messenger, Research in Motion’s handsets might not be as fun as an iPhone, but they are just great at what they do.
Out of the variety of handsets released under the BlackBerry brand, BlackBerry Curve 9320 is the one that pertains most to entertainment. Built with the sole purpose of making BBM more fun, BlackBerry Curve 9320 features a dedicated BBM shortcut key and you’ll also find it integrated in your favorite social networking apps, like Facebook and Twitter. You can even share with your BBM friends your playlist on BBM Music or your travel location/itinerary from BlackBerry Travel and App World.
At 4.92 by 2.36 by 0.5 inches and 3.63 oz, the Curve 9320 is aimed for the buyer who is budget conscious, but highly interested in instant messaging, social networking, GPS, emailing, document viewer, radio and excellent voice quality. The Curve 9320 is RIM’s cheapest handset ever, and although it offers the basic, it does not integrate the more impressive touchscreen in Bold 9780 or Bol 9900. But then again, for the price, this handset delivers more than enough.
The affordable BlackBerry Curve 9320 features the curved back for a comfortable grip, but the overall design remains obsolete and looks a bit chunky. The screen on Curve 9320 is low-resolution, measuring 2.44 inches and offering only a 164ppi density, which does performs decently when reading text and navigating maps.
The keyboard is like usually well built, offering an easy QWERTY experience. The budget-friendly Curve 9320 features the signature optical trackpad and four mechanical standard buttons (call, menu, back and hang up).
