Canadian carrier WIND Mobile has just announced the immediate availability of the BlackBerry Curve 9320 smartphone.
WIND Mobile recently launched the Ascend P1 smartphone, which is one of the Huawei's high-end Android devices that has yet to be rolled out globally.
However, the Curve 9320
has been available in Canada for more than three months, though WIND Mobile added the smartphone to its portfolio only today.
Customers can grab the BlackBerry Curve 9320 for free on WINDtab ($25, $29 or $40), or for $200 CAD off-contract. Check it out here
The good news is that the smartphone comes with BlackBerry 7.1 operating system out of the box, so there's no need to manually update it to the latest version of the platform.
In addition, the Curve 9320 features a dedicated BBM key, allowing for faster BlackBerry Messenger access.
Although the handset comes with a full QWERTY physical keyboard, it does not offer users a touch screen instead it sports a standard 2.44-inch display that supports 320 x 240 pixels resolution and 65k colors.
No word on the processor that powers this smartphone, but we know it packs 512MB of RAM, 512MB of ROM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
It is also worth mentioning BlackBerry
Curve 9320 has a mediocre 3.2-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and video recording.
The phone's 1450 mAh Li-Ion battery is rated by the manufacturer for up to 432 hours of standby time or up to 7 hours of talk time.
“WIND is committed to offering a wide-selection of the very best devices on the market and the Curve 9320 is a great example of that. It’s a phone that makes communicating easy and we think it will make a great addition to our current handset lineup
