Following on from BGR’s leaked RIM roadmap the other day further, slides have appeared over on the site detailing the specs of a few devices. As I pointed out then the Curve 9220 was of particular interest to me. You may think that a bit strange as it is an Edge only handset but I shall explain why.
With the BlackBerry Curve 8520 being massively popular here in the UK we have a huge market for a low spec and low cost BlackBerry. The 8520 was announced in mid 2009 so could this new 9220 be a natural upgrade for the 8520? If it can be offered at a similar price then RIM are set to retain their BlackBerry customers that use the 8520.
Of course, at this stage there are no guarantees the Curve 9220 will even be sold in the UK. You must remember that these details are leaked and although more than likely true the specs and exact details of the device may well change.
On a personal note I think Research in Motion would be mad not to launch the 9220 into the UK market. You hear me RIM?
You can see the specs below:
