RIM’s latest attempt to keep its sinking ship above water appears to be a new addition to its low-end BlackBerry range. The Curve 9320 is due for release next month, according to T-Mobile U.K., which appears to have leaked the device accidentally with no official announcement from RIM.
As you’d expect, the Curve 9320 sports that trademark BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard, alongside a touch-sensitive optical trackpad and a 3.2-megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom. It’s expected to enter the Curve lineup priced below the Curve 9360, so a touchscreen looks unlikely.
According to TechRadar, the device will also feature a dedicated BlackBerry Messenger key, the BlackBerry 7.1 operating system, and a new radio app that has reportedly been laying dormant in a number of BlackBerry devices for years. The report suggests that the device will be aimed at younger users hoping to secure a BlackBerry with an affordable price tag.
T-Mobile leaked the device via its ‘Coming Soon’ page earlier today — alongside the Sony Xperia U — but promptly removed the listing a short while later. Now that the word is out, you can expect to hear official details from RIM sometime soon.
