BlackBerry Curve 9220 Review


If you just have to get a BlackBerry device because of their BBM and Email goodness, want something with the latest OS, and can only budget for about Rs 10,000, this has to be the device you buy. If all you want is BBM and you aren�t app crazy, stick...

BlackBerry Curve 9220: New Bottle, Old Wine


One of the key reasons why BlackBerry rules the smartphone roost in India has been the entry-level Curve 8520, released way back in August 2009. A basic smartphone without 3G and specs like a 2 MP camera, the 8520 was a mega-success primarily because...

Overall, while I welcome the amazing battery and OS 7.1 with the boost in RAM and ROM, I wish RIM had more to offer on the 9220.

BlackBerry Curve 9220


The BlackBerry Curve 9220, set to be unveiled alongside the similarly-named 9320, is expected to launch at Mobile World Congress as the bargain-priced sequel to the Curve 8520.

No doubt targeted at teens and those on a budget, the leaked handsdet is expected to tout RIM's typically handy portrait QWERTY keypad, married against a 2.4-inch 320 x 240 non-touch display and RIM's BlackBerry OS 7 software. This will equip the phone...

not able to read booklet


the product worked well. But I was not able to read the instructions because the booklet was in Spanish only. I had to find information online. I was upset about that.
