RIM announces new BlackBerry Curve OS 7 lineup

The Curve line is very popular with both carriers and customers and this latest lineup of OS 7 devices looks solid with good specs.

I recently reviewed the three new high end BlackBerry OS 7 devices and today RIM announced the Curve lineup that will reach the masses. The BB Curve has been one of the best selling lines for RIM in the past and these three new models, the 9350, 9360, and 9370 look to continue that tradition and offer those upgrading from a feature phone or existing Curve a solid choice.

All three new Curve models run BB OS 7, have 480x360 pixels resolution 2.44 inch displays (works out to 246 ppi), 800 MHz processors, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC. The 9350 and 9370 are CDMA models while the 9360 is a GSM model. See CrackBerry.com for details on the differences between the three models. It is interesting to see that the Curves all have NFC while only the Bold 9900/9930 has it in the higher end with no NFC for the Torch lines.

There is no pricing or carrier information available yet, but you can bet these will be available on all U.S. carriers starting in September.
