The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is one of the worst kept secrets from Research in Motion in recent times. The handset had already made a brief appearance in a hands-on video a long time before it was officially announced everywhere across the globe. At that time we got to see its unique feature, which was the quick access BBM button. The brand had recently taken the wraps off the device, but the only thing left to be known was the price and when it would hit store shelves. Research in Motion today announced the stylish new smartphone for socially-connected customers in India. This new smartphone features all the core BlackBerry messaging and social-centric features that keep people connected, and it offers global 3G connectivity backed by long battery life to allow users to make the most of their day.

“The BlackBerry Curve series is extremely popular and successful in India and we are excited to bring the new BlackBerry Curve 9320 to customers here. This new Curve model is designed to make it incredibly easy for customers to be socially-connected, and we expect it will be especially popular in the youth segment,” said Sunil Dutt, Managing Director, India at Research in Motion.
