A leaked photo of a new, unannounced BlackBerry Curve model shows that Research in Motion will be highlighting its proprietary BlackBerry Messenger, otherwise known as BBM, network more to consumers. The BlackBerry Curve 9320 was shown in the latest leaked image with a dedicated button on the side that will specifically activate and launch the BBM chat functionality on the device without requiring users to scroll through the OS and menus to activate the chat service.
The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is still not yet announced by RIM, though preliminary leaked specs suggest that the smartphone will run BlackBerry 7 OS and have a 2.44-inch QVGA display that lacks touch-input. The device will have 512 MB of RAM with an unknown single-core processor. A micro SDHC card slot as well as a 3.2-megapixel camera also adorn the phone. The 9320 is expected to succeed the low-end BlackBerry Curve 3G. RIM Plays Up BBM With Dedicated Button on Leaked BlackBerry Curve Photo
