Blackberry Curve 9380-Black
Out Of Stock7-10 Working Days
RIM recently announced two new entry-level BlackBerry devices, the Curve 9380 and the Bold 9790, to limited fanfare; they were, after all, just cheaper versions of the Torch 9850/60 and Bold 9900. Still, that`s just what some people are looking for,......
Pros: Smooth, unified face ; Generally responsive, snappy interface ; Good bang for buck
Cons: Dated, dead-end operating system ; No camera auto-focus means fuzzy close-ups ; Virtual keyboard lacks precision
Verdict: While the BlackBerry Curve 9380 takes knocks on a few fronts, it does perform fairly well for its price. Right now, the only carrier that has gone public with its pricing for the 9380 is TELUS, and they`re asking $50 on a three-year contract.u00a0u00...
The BlackBerry Curve 9380 marks somewhat of a milestone for RIM, as it is the company`s first device of the supposedly affordable Curve series that comes in a touchscreen-only form. It disposes of the legendary physical keyboard, as found on its 9370......
After playing it cool for a few years, RIM has apparently decided that there`s something to this touchscreen phone lark after all, releasing a budget all-touch device in the shape of the BlackBerry Curve 9380. In the last few months we`ve seen a touchscreen added to the Bold in the form of the BlackBerry Bold 9900, an update to the Torch line in the BlackBerry Torch 9810, and a new, all-touch addition to the Torch family in the BlackBerry Torch 9...
Pros: Fairly cheap, Bright, colourful screen, Some nice design in BB OS 7, Light and quite well-made, Some good social integration,
Cons: Low screen resolution, A few performance issues, OS has lots of rough edges, Keyboard is a bit fiddly, Some poor social integration, too,
The Curve brand has been hugely successful for RIM, especially the 8520 mega-hit; these were the first BlackBerries that appealed to the masses on a budget, allowing the everyman a taste of BBM and the famed BlackBerry keyboard. Alongside the Curve 9360, this is RIM`s take on a modern budget smartphone. As you`ve probably noticed, the 9380 doesn`t have a keyboard, perhaps the biggest BlackBerry selling point. That doesn`t spell doom for RIM thoug...
Pros: Super light, fast OS, battery life
Cons: Touchscreen sensitivity,built-in fingerprint magnet, clumsy keyboard
Verdict: In virtually every sense, the Curve 9380 is a downgraded Torch 9860. While that Torch was a decent effort from RIM, the design brief doesn`t transfer as well to a cheaper device. That doesn`t mean I think it`s a particularly bad phone though. At its ...
