(TS) – RIM and T-Mobile has announced a new BlackBerry phone, the Curve 9315.
Keep in mind that this isn’t the next BlackBerry phone that’s leaked several times over the last few weeks. That phone will run RIM’s new operating system called BlackBerry 10 and we won’t have full details on it until January 30.
The Curve 9315 is a small update to the BlackBerry Curve that’s been around for a long time now, but T-Mobile is marketing it as an affordable budget phone.
But it’s not really affordable. The new Curve costs $49.99 with a two-year contract, plus $10 per month for 20 months. That’s a grand total of $250 over 20 months, or more expensive than the cheapest iPhone 5.
Combining an intuitive interface with a QWERTY keyboard, the BlackBerry Curve 9315 features built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity for voice and data, enabling customers to access the information they need when and where they need it, and Wi-Fi calling, allowing calls and messages over an available Wi-Fi network. With a dedicated BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™) key, preloaded apps for Facebook® and Twitter® and the Social Feeds 2.0 app, customers can easily interact with their friends, coworkers and social networks whether it’s instant messaging, posting or tweeting.
The new BlackBerry Curve 9315 offers a 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash and digital zoom as well as video recording capabilities. Customers also have the ability to geo-tag the location of their pictures by utilizing the smartphone’s built-in GPS. In addition, the smartphone features a microSD card slot for up to 32GB of additional media storage and a built-in FM radio letting customers tune in to local FM stations. With the BlackBerry App World™ storefront, customers have exclusive access to a wide range of apps, allowing them to enhance their smartphone experience with entertainment, personalization and productivity apps of their choosing.
