BlackBerry Curve 9360 Review

 

I'm in my 30s and was an adult when mobile telephony was introduced in India in the mid-90s. One abiding memory of the time - besides the ridiculously high tariffs - was the size of the mobile p

The BlackBerry Curve 8300 emerged as one of the best smartphone ideas of 2007. It pre-dated the first Android handset by a full year, and unlike the

Bright, crisp display ; Affordable price

A touchscreen would've been more intuitive ; Unacceptable for web browsing ; Subpar camera ; Middling battery life

The Curve 9360 fails to keep pace with other consumer smartphones. It's woefully inadequate for all but the most basic communication needs.

BlackBerry Curve 9360 review: Up and about

 

This QWERTY messenger is compact and to the point, with clean and grown up design. The Curve 9360 is sure it can deliver, its confidence unshaken by unknowns and uncertainties. RIM must've enjoyed the safety and comfort of doing what they're best at.

Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA ; 2.46" 16M-color TFT landscape display of HVGA+ resolution (480x360) ; Full QWERTY keyboard ; Optical trackpad ; 800MHz processor ; 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM ; Wi-Fi b/g/n connectivity...

BlackBerry Internet Service account is a must to enjoy all phone features ; Poor still camera quality ; Bland text-only submenus ; Rigid call and navigation keys ; Fixed focus camera ; No HD video ; Glossy back panel prevents good grip, easily greased up

BlackBerry Curve 9360 (T- Mobile)

 

RIM launched its next-generation BlackBerry 7 OS with a refreshed Bold 9900/9930, the Torch 9810, and the Torch 9850/9860. Conspicuously absent was the Curve, RIM's entry-level brand. That has changed, however, with the release of the RIM BlackBerry...

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 is slim and compact with a tactile physical keyboard. It supports NFC and the BlackBerry 7 OS, and can make calls over Wi-Fi

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360's side buttons are a little too skinny for us, there's no HD video capture, and it doesn't support T-Mobile's high-speed HSPA+ network

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 makes a great entry-level offering for those already in the BlackBerry camp.

RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 (T-Mobile)

 

The 5-megapixel, continuous focus camera sports an upgraded feature set, and includes geotagging, image stabilization, and an LED flash. Test photos were good for the most part, with clear, detailed shots outdoors and in brightly lit rooms, and vibrant...

UMA-based Wi-Fi calling is excellent. Slim and sleek. Fantastic battery life. Loud speakerphone. Great keyboard

Far fewer third-party apps than the competition, and they're all less powerful. No HSPA+ support. No HD video recording

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 is no longer a standout smartphone, but it's a solid budget device for the BlackBerry faithful.

RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 Review

 

Trying to own the recent BlackBerry Bold 9900 for T-Mobile can literally zap your wallet out of all your money, especially when it's priced exorbitantly at $299.99. Similar to what we find in the past, that's where RIM's beloved Curve line comes to...

Sleek, smart, impressive.

Sleek design; Fast menu navigation and apps; Screen is crisp; NFC compatible; Decent battery life

Poor camera; Cumbersome browsing experience; Fingerprint magnet

Speaking of which, the Curve supports a decent set of hardware components, namely the 800MHz CPU and 512MB RAM which is enough to run the BB OS7; the final traditional BB operating system before BBX hits the new handsets next year. The CPU may seem...

The BlackBerry Curve is back and is now slimmer and sexier — the thinnest Curve there is. I've been using the Curve 9360 for a couple of week now since we went to Jakarta for the BlackBerry launch event last week. Check out our full review of the...

of Php16,990 is a bit on the steep side though considering the older and popular Curve 8250 is already in the sub-Php10k range.

RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360

 

The BlackBerry Curve 9360 is the latest in RIM's blitz of OS 7 devices to launch this summer, which included the Bold 9900 / 30, the Torch 9810, and the Torch 9850 / 60. The new Curve keeps with the established entry-level brand identity, but takes...

Slim, pocketable, stylish design ; Reasonable pricetag ; Solid messaging capabilities

User interface dated ; No auto-focus on camera ; Occasional processor lags

As RIM's new baseline standard, entry-level phone, the Curve 9360 offers a fair bit, and has enough slimness to keep the style-oriented interested. Unfortunately, a lot of the issues that plague RIM's top-of-the-line OS 7 handsets, like an uncertain...
