Research In Motion plans unveiling BlackBerry Curve 9360 in Hong Kong

The smartphone delivers the world’s best mobile communications and social experiences.

Research In Motion (RIM) announced Wednesday plans to launch the BlackBerry® Curve™ 9360, which features the new BlackBerry® 7 operating system (OS), in Hong Kong. The BlackBerry Curve 9360 smartphone is expected to be available from authorized partners in Hong Kong at the end of November.

Urpo Karjalainen, Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific at Research In Motion commented, “The new BlackBerry Curve 9360 is an easy-to-use and affordable smartphone that is beautifully designed and offers a significant performance upgrade for both feature phone users as well as our existing BlackBerry Curve customers.”

The new BlackBerry Curve smartphone is slim, light and stylish. It is ergonomically designed with a comfortable and iconic keyboard for fast, accurate typing and an optical trackpad for easy, one-handed navigation. GPS and Wi-Fi® support are also included, as well as a 5 MP camera with flash and video recording so that memories can be captured and instantly shared on social networks. The microSD/SDHC slot supports up to 32 GB memory cards for additional media storage.

In addition to supporting the new BlackBerry 7 OS, the BlackBerry Curve 9360 smartphone features a range of powerful hardware enhancements including an upgraded processor and display, more memory, and built-in support for NFC (Near Field Communications). NFC is a new technology that is enabling many exciting capabilities, including the ability to pair accessories or read SmartPoster tags with a simple tap of the smartphone.

BlackBerry 7 also introduces a next generation BlackBerry browser, which combines the dramatically improved performance of the advanced WebKit browser engine with the hardware enhancements in the new BlackBerry Curve 9360 smartphone to deliver a significantly faster, more fluid web browsing experience. Additional enhancements to this next generation BlackBerry browser have enabled smoother navigation and optimized HTML5 performance for incredible gaming and video experiences, according to a RIM report.

Best In Class Communications and Social Experiences
The BlackBerry Curve 9360 delivers the world’s best mobile communications and social experiences with a highly refined and integrated suite of phone, email, messaging and social apps to keep users connected and productive throughout the day.
