RIM Makes Leaked BlackBerry Curve 9320 Official

Following a series of leaks, there isn’t much we don’t already know about the BlackBerry Curve 9320. But today Research in Motion has made the budget handset official. It looks just like the device we’ve already seen in those leaked images, with a built-in FM radio and a dedicated BlackBerry Messenger key.

The Curve 9320 features a 2.44-inch display with a 320 x 240 resolution, 512MB of RAM, a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera with an LED flash, Wi-Fi, and HSPA connectivity. It comes with 512MB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that allows you to add an additional 32GB to that.

The handset is powered by the BlackBerry 7.1 operating system, and it promises to offer “super charged battery life” with up to 7 hours of talk time, up to 28 hours of music, and up to 18 days of standby time. What’s more, its dedicated BBM key is said to be “user customizable,” suggesting you can change its function to suit you.

RIM is yet to reveal all of the details concerning the Curve 9320; we still don’t know how much it’ll cost, when it will be available, or which carriers will support it. However, we don’t expect to be waiting too long before carriers confirm this themselves. After all, T-Mobile U.K. has already announced it once.

Will you be adopting the new BlackBerry Curve 9320?
