Entry level RIM phone will available in US Sept 14

T-Mobile is gearing up to launch the BlackBerry Curve 9360. TmoNews has revealed new marketing material for the RIM BlackBerry 7-based smartphone showing a promotional price of $230, as part of a prepaid service offering with the carrier. The phone is expected to hit T-Mobile's shelves on September 14.

The Curve 9360 features a 2.44-inch 480x360 HVGA+ transmissive TFT display, a 800MHz processor, a five-megapixel camera with flash and face detection, and VGA video recording. It also sports a backlit QWERTY keyboard, and an optical trackpad. Talk time is up to 5.5 hours, and standby is up to 14 days.

The 9360 hit the FCC for approval in the US in mid-August. It has been available in Canada since August 29. RIM has given no indication when the smartphone's siblings, the 9350 CDMA or the dual mode 9370 will be carried in the US.

    no touch screen

    Even though Blackberry has been dinged - and deservedly so, for not doing touch very well - they have gotten a lot better.

    But, that doesn't matter for this phone - no touch screen. Even with the smaller screen, and keyboard, and other controls - just tapping the icon on the screen makes a lot of navigations easier on the BB.

    This phone is low priced - $230 off contract, but you'll have to be willing to give up touch completely - which is not the case, if you get an even lower priced Android phone.

    This is definately for Blackberry Messenger fans, otherwise - forget it, go with Android.

    Now - I'm not an Android fanboy - I would love to look at the new QNX based Blackberries coming next year, maybe something with a beefier processor. I don't mind the look of the 9360 - but it really needs a touch screen and a beefier processor. and why buy one now, with QNX coming out in a few months?

    QNX is what you want in the blackberry world - even if I admit BB OS 7 has come a long way in the last few years.

    Obsolete phone for a low price. Sounds about right.
