Research In Motion (RIM) has just announced the immediate availability of its latest BlackBerry Curve 9320 budget-friendly smartphone in Singapore.
Customers can now purchase the handset from authorized BlackBerry partners across the country, including local carriers SingTel and M1.
Unfortunately, RIM did not unveil any details on the smartphone’s pricing options, so those who wish to buy the Curve 9320
should head over to the nearest authorized seller.
Just like the affordable Curve 9220, the Curve 9320 comes with a dedicated BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) key, which is not available in other models. This key allows users to quickly access RIM’s popular messenger application.
The smartphone is also packed with various social network apps, including Facebook and Twitter. In addition, the Curve 9320 comes pre-loaded with the new Social Feeds 2.0 app, which allows users to post update multiple social networks at the same time.
On the inside, BlackBerry
Curve 9320 packs 512MB of ROM, 512MB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
There’s also a 3-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, as well as FM radio with RDS and built-in GPS with A-GPS support.
The smartphone offers 3G connectivity, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. Its 1450 mAh Li-Ion battery is rated by the manufacturer for up to 7 hours of talk time, 432 hours of standby time, or up to 30 hours of FM radio listening or music playback with headphones.
Last but not least, the BlackBerry Curve 9320 is powered by the new BlackBerry 7.1 operating system, so users won’t have to wait for an update to this version.
“In today’s fast paced society, it is more important than ever to stay connected while on the move. The powerful messaging and social-centric features of the BlackBerry Curve 9320 will be popular with customers in Singapore, and we are very pleased to be launching this new model locally with our authorized partners and carriers
