Default Curve 9320

Please Login to Remove!

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.

This is just going to make things worse in the BBM Social Groups section, especially if they market this device in Nigeria.

Also known as the convenience key.

I guess this will be popular in other parts of the world, but I don't know how they expect to sell such low-end specs in North America. Massive volume, I guess.

Not really.. From the photo I saw, it says BBM. No mention of convenience key or the ability to reprogram it.

I stand corrected. Well, sit.

Is this a dedicated key below the left convenience key?

I kinda like that idea, honestly. I don't use either convenience key for BBM right now, so a dedicated key is appealing to me.

It's dedicated. I don't know of any NA carrier that plans to offer this device though. It is pretty low end.
