Just a couple of weeks ago, Research In Motion (RIM) have officially launched its two newest BlackBerry Curve devices in the Philippines — the BlackBerry Curve 9220 and Curve 9320.

The BlackBerry Curve 9220 was first announced back in April followed by the Curve 9320 in May, but both devices actually made its official land fall in the country late last month. So basically, telling you about these handsets here on CTB is a bit delayed, but I’ve already told you why. Despite of that, let’s have a quick look what these phones really have to offer, inside and out!
The BlackBerry Curve 9220 and Curve 9320 are very identical in the outside, both featuring a 2.44-inch display and a QWERTY keyboard. There’s really nothing to boast from its innards, just that these phones are typically entry-level yet offer the core BlackBerry experience. Both devices run on the latest BlackBerry OS 7.1 that offers new great features such as mobile hotspot, FM Radio, and an improved battery performance; plus those social features you’d always experience on BlackBerry like BBM, Social Feeds, Facebook, Twitter, and other web-enabled functionalities. You can’t expect much on multimedia of these phones, but in any case you need to capture moments along the way – perhaps the phones’ camera would suffice. (more…)
