The new BlackBerry® Curve™ 9360 is now available in Italy. This re-designed model is faster and easier to use than it predecessor, the 9300 Curve™. Research In Motion (RIM) announced it would become available locked on the 3 Italia, TIM Telecom Italia, Vodafone and Wind wireless networks.
Blackberry® thinks this model will be especially appealing to Italians because of its many social media features. It has all the new benefits of running on the new BB OS7 operating system.
The 9360 BlackBerry® Curve™ is slimmer and more appealing in design. It fits more comfortably in the palm of your hand and still has a full QWERT keyboard for easy typing. It also has an optical track pad for easy one hand navigation.
Other features include Wi-Fi® and GPS. There is 5 mega pixel camera and video recording capability. All of this link to easy to upload buttons which can quickly have your photos or videos on a social network within minutes. A microSD/SDHC slot allows for up to 32GM more using a memory card.
The processor on this BlackBerry® is a lot faster and the display has more resolution. Another important feature on the 9360 Curve™ is NFC (Near Field Communications) technology which allows the handset to transfer information wirelessly on to another device. BlackBerry® Tag is an application which will allow you to share information by simply touching another BlackBerry® handset. But NFC is probably going to be more important for payments as more and more retailers install readers. Instead of swiping a plastic credit card, you will just swipe your phone over the reader to make a payment.
The new 9360 Curve™ will come locked on Vodafone Italy, 3 Italy, TIM Telecom Italia or Wind Italia, depending on which wireless network you choose to buy the mobile phone on. UnlockWorldwide.com already has the unlock code solution and can help anyone wishing to unblock the network SIM restriction and free the BlackBerry Curve™ 9360 to work with all global service carriers.
The new version of BBM™ (BlackBerry® Messenger) also comes pre-loaded on the 9360 allowing instant access and messages to all your contacts on the BlackBerry® network. This new model is geared toward social interaction with new Apps for FaceBook® and Twitter® integrated on the BlackBerry platform. All in all the 9360 Curve™ should be a winner for BlackBerry in Italy.
