BlackBerry Curve 9380 – 2011 Hottest Gadgets
The new all-touch BlackBerry Curve 9380 is the first BlackBerry Curve smartphone that sports a touch screen, offering a full-sized touch display at that. It maintains the great attributes and fun and approachable features that distinguish the BlackBerry Curve family, adds some really cool new technology such as NFC and Augmented Reality, while offering users a responsive all-touch screen interface.
Like existing BlackBerry Curve models, the BlackBerry Curve 9380 is light in weight and has a sleek and stylish design. The beautifully crafted handset fits easily into your holster, feels great in your hand, and looks good no matter where you go.
The 3.2” all-touchscreen is packed full of pixels for a crisp picture, which makes it ideal for quickly scanning and scrolling through messages, zooming in on your friends’ newest Facebook® pics or streaming YouTube® videos on the go.
Verdict: The worthiness of this phone will depend on how much you're into the BlackBerry ecosystem, how much you prefer a touchscreen over a physical keyboard and — most importantly — how much you're willing to spend. RIM leaves pricing up to its carriers, but this device will have to be seriously cheap if it's to make an impact when it hits the market in a few weeks, because budget Androids are getting better all the time.
