 BlackBerry Curve 9220 Available now
18th April 2012

The BlackBerry Curve 9220 is a low-cost addition to the Curve range, heading exclusively to the Indian market.

You might guess that this is a step down from the old Curve 9300 from the name, and indeed this is a very basic device that probably wouldn't appeal to most other markets.

 BlackBerry Curve 9220 This is a GSM-only handset with no 3G support, but it does support WiFi connectivity. The display is a 2.44" 320 x 240 pixel panel, and on the back is a basic 2 megapixel camera. There's an in-built FM radio, but the 9220 lacks GPS. The internal memory is a useful 512MB of Flash paired with 512MB of RAM, plus there is a microSD slot. The Curve 9220 also supports Bluetooth and has a 3.5mm audio socket.

The operating system is the latest BlackBerry 7.1 OS, and of course the Curve 9220 does everything that BlackBerry devices are good at, including BlackBerry Messenger (with a dedicated button) and excellent email support. The lack of 3G isn't much of an issue for these services, most messaging functions work adequately on GPRS/EDGE and WiFi.

RIM say that the battery on the Curve 9220 is good for up to 7 hours talk time and 18 days standby time. It is available to buy now in India for around 11,000 Rupees.
