The phone is very attractive, dare we say more attractive than the other devices in the BlackBerry group. These attractive looks mean the phone is definitely set up for the narcissistic youth market. The phone comes in at a quite slim 11mm thick which is very slim for a BlackBerry. It also has curved edges which make it seem smaller than it actually is, and metallic edges which ensure the device looks good. The phone comes with a 2.44 inch screen which is not touch capacitive. However it does have the usual BlackBerry track pad.
The Curve 9360 has BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) which means that people can send messages to another BlackBerry phone for free. The Curve 9360 is a definite winner for those who don’t have credit or money to send a message. This is also great for staying touch.
The keyboard of the BlackBerry is ideal for this and feels as though it is made from quality components. The phone really comes together for sending messages because of this. The BlackBerry OS7 is the latest BlackBerry operating system and is a huge improvement on the previous BlackBerry OS6 – it is also the operating system used in the higher end Torch and Bold models which will give it some sway with the mid range phone market.
The device comes with a 5mp camera that is capable of 720p recording and is the same as the one in the Bold and the Torch phones. This camera is great for sharing on social networks and the 800MHz processor is fast enough to deal with shutter speeds and to ensure the phone is an adequate phone for using apps on and multitasking with.
The lack of apps on the BlackBerry app store however may be a put off for people who enjoy downloading the latest applications for their phone. However, the Curve 9360 offers the best BlackBerry features including the new OS in a much more affordable phone contract package than the higher end Torch and Bold devices, and may prove to be very popular with younger BlackBerry lovers.
