BlackBerry Curve 9360 – Hands on video

Screen Shot 2011-08-23 at 12.11.18

I popped along to the press event held by Research in Motion today to check out the new BlackBerry Curve 9360. Running BlackBerry 7 and with some improved specs such as screen resolution, camera and a 800mhz processor this new addition to the Curve family looks to be a huge hit.

With the BlackBerry Curve being the best selling Smartphone in the UK the big question will be ‘is how much is this one going to cost?’ As yet I cannot answer that as it will depend on the carrier but it has to fall in line with the current 3G Curve, the 9300.

As soon as we can get our hands on a review device we will of course bring you an unboxing video as well as the full review but in the meantime you can see my hands on video from today below.
