Want to get your BBM on in style without spending a fortune on RIM's latest trio? Say hello to the new 11mm (0.43 inch) thin BlackBerry Curve, now official in 3 variants -- the dual-mode GSM / CDMA 9370, the GSM / UMTS 9360 and the CDMA-only 9350. These long rumored handsets feature an 800MHz CPU

It's not exactly the most exciting device in RIM's pipeline, but the Curve \"Apollo\" is shaping a solid workhorse of a BlackBerry. The still-unannounced smartphone popped up on Tinh te, with the Vietnamese tech showing off some solid hands-on time with the device, putting it through its paces on v

As if we needed any more signs of where Research in Motion was heading in terms of its 2011 device line, we've just caught wind of yet another touchscreen-equipped Berry. The BlackBerry \"Orlando\" is purported to be a variation of the Curve with touch capabilities, already being described as a mini

We've known for some time that RIM is going all-in on NFC (isn't everyone?), but we didn't realize they were going retroactive, too. A NFC payment trial coming up involving RIM and Bank of America will allow selected testers to get an NFC-capable back for their Curve 8520 or 8530, Tour 9630, or Bol

The BlackBerry Curve has always been our favorite 'berry because of its solid keyboard and lack of pretension to any functionality beyond great messaging, but it looks like things are about to change fast: you're looking at a leaked image of what CrackBerry says is the Curve Touch, codenamed \"Malib

Despite the more recent releases of the Curve 8500 series and the Curve 3G, RIM has never really offered up a true successor to the venerable Curve 8900 -- a device some would argue remains the prettiest that Waterloo has ever manufactured. Indeed, with the QVGA display and meager cam on the 3G, th

Yes, for one of the lowest-end BlackBerrys money can buy, $199.99 seems pricey, but there's something important to keep in mind here: Boost is a contract-free brand, and the Curve 8530 is no exception. The Sprint subsidiary has announced today that it's \"permanently\" dropping the price of the phone

The way AT&T announced the Curve 3G a few weeks back, they made it sound like prospective buyers could be in for a wait following the October 17 release of the Pearl 3G, but not so much -- it's already available. You'll pay $99.99 on contract after rebates and discounts for the privilege of put

We would've never figured on Verizon carrying over the \"Curve 3G\" name from this phone's GSM counterpart, considering all of its older Curve models have already had EV-DO -- but branding consistency trumps logic in this case, we suppose. Given what we know about the GSM model, you can probably gues

Last we'd heard it'd be hitting shelves \"in the coming weeks,\" and... well, \"the coming weeks\" have gradually become \"now.\" You follow? Good, because the BlackBerry Curve 3G is hitting next Sunday in your choice of \"smokey violet\" and \"graphite grey\" for $79.99 on a new two-year contract -- which a

The cart left the gate on Thursday and here comes the horse: the official BlackBerry Curve 3G (model 9300) announcement just landed in our inbox. So in addition to sporting (800/850)/1900/2100MHz or 900/1700/2100MHz HSDPA data, quad-band GSM, WiFi, and GPS, we now know that if you buy this BlackBer

Uh, RIM ol' buddy, is there something you'd like to tell us about this unannounced BlackBerry Curve 9300 that's up and dancing on Rogers' website right now with a $79.99 Canadian price tag on a three-year contract? We're looking at a quad-band GSM and HSDPA 850/1900/2100 candybar with 802.11n WiFi,

It's certainly not the first time we've seen this here BlackBerry (with \"this here\" meaning \"Curve 9300\"), but it's the first time we've seen it outfitted in carrier clothing. Notice that T-Mobile logo at the bottom? That's the clearest indication yet that this particular 'Berry will soon be headed
