BlackBerry Curve 9350 to Ride Sprint

September 30, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Next week – or more precisely, next month – RIM will be curving in on Sprint with their new handset. RIM’s curve line will be offering the BlackBerry Curve 9350 which, they say, won’t burn a hole in your wallet.

Sprint will be carrying this next generation Curve and will be looking to target the younger half of the population. This is an entry level BlackBerry device, so you won’t find a touchscreen but there’s a great portrait keyboard.

The design is stylish with a slim and sleek look and besides, it’s loaded with RIM’s latest version of software, BlackBerry OS 7. Power is driven by an 800 MHz processor and you get 512 MB of RAM inside.

There’s a 2 GB microSD card included, with support for up to 32GB, and the device also supports NFC. The screen space is a trifle small with a 2.44-inch HVGA+ display, but there’s a 5-megapixel shooter, with flash and zoom, in the back.

Then you get the usuals like WiFi (802.11 b/g/n) and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR support. Moreover, if you are the owner of a BlackBerry PlayBook, then you would be happy to note that the Curve 9350 supports BlackBerry Bridge.

Sprint will be bring it on Sunday, October 2nd, for $79.99 on a two-year agreement. If anyone plans on picking it up, leave your comments on what your experience is.
