BlackBerry Curve 9320, one of the most affordable smartphones launched by Research In Motion (RIM) hit shelves back in May.
Although the device is already available in the UK for quite some time, it appears that O2 carrier plans to release a red version of the Curve 9320.
Customers in the UK can purchase the BlackBerry Curve 9320 in black, as RIM has not launched additional colors in the country.
According to O2, the red-themed Curve 9320
will be go on sale sometime in August, though the carrier has not mention an exact release date yet.
The affordable Curve 9320 features a sleek, stylish design, but it is far from being impressive when it comes with hardware configuration.
The only thing that makes it stand out is the dedicated BBM key, which allows users to quickly access RIM’s popular messaging service, BlackBerry Messenger.
The Curve 9320 is aimed at customers who wish to purchase their first BlackBerry smartphone, but do not want to break the bank for it.
Another strong point of the smartphone is the fact that it comes with BlackBerry 7.1 operating system out of the box, so owners won’t have to wait for an update.
The device packs 512MB of ROM, 512MB of RAM, as well as microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB). There’s also a 3-megapixel rear photo snapper with LED flash and video recording.
BlackBerry Curve 9320 does not feature a touchscreen; instead it sports a standard 2.44-inch display that supports 320 x 240 pixels resolution and 65k colors.
When it comes to connectivity, the Curve 9320
offers a wide range of options, including HSDPA (7.2Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76Mbps), as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 support.
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.
