BlackBerry Curve 9360 (Apollo) Images Leak yet Again; More Details Surface

August 6, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

BlackBerry Curve 9360 (also known as BlackBerry Curve Apollo) may have been spoken about so much ever since it first surfaced. But, we have been wondering why RIM prefers to stay silent even after making the device official some months ago. The rumor mill and the spies haven’t kept quiet, however.

Many a time have they brought to our table leaks and info about the device. We have stumbled upon yet another leak now. The latest Apollo leak comes in the form of a handful of images shot from different angles. Folks at OneMobileRing have managed to get hold of the images, and they give us some good details too.

Though RIM’s official confirmation is still pending, we feel the device is apparently thinner than the earlier models. It will sport a HVGA 480×360 display, a full QWERTY, a 5-megapixel camera with flash and NFC capabilities.

To be powered by a Tavor MG-1 800MHz CPU (with 512MB of RAM), the device will run on BlackBerry7 OS. It’s also found to come with support for GPS, Bluetooth, b/g/n Wi-Fi and Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE. It is also believed that the device will support Tri-band UMTS/HSPA at 7.2Mbps.

This device will be ideal for persons who would like to own the BlackBerry OS without impacting their budget too much. It has notable advantage over the present Curve, with a 624MHz processor, 5MP cam and double the RAM. It will also be the first Curve to boast NFC capabilities. We expect the BlackBerry Curve Apollo to release soon. Stay tuned.
