Do you own a Blackberry Curve 9360 Smartphone?
The BlackBerry Company has managed to bring forth numerous Smartphone iterations, one of them being the Black Berry Curve 9360. This Black Berry curve has so many features in common with other Black Berries with some of them surpassing those of the initial models. It has a sharper design than a Savile Row suit and the best QWERTY keyboard ever and the latest RIM BlackBerry operating system iteration.
No touch screen but improved camera!
The Curve 9360 has HVGA resolution packed into a space of 2.44 inches. However, its reproduction of color is superb which enables the screen to really pop for the internet and media. The 5 megapixels and the LED flash make it better than its predecessors. However, it lacks auto focus making some of the snaps to come out with distinct blurriness.
BB OS 7 interface best for a touchscreen
The drawing of various applications is the main method to navigate around the smart phone making the BB OS 7 interface more or less just likes the OS 6 iteration. The BB OS 7 system is more suited for a touch screen. It is therefore a bit messy to use only a track pad for navigation.
Isn’t the battery life not good enough anymore? Blame the faster processor
The BlackBerry Curve 9360 battery does not drain its power quickly if you do not play music too much or spend hours browsing in the internet. If you put the phone under a harder use, it can drain really fast. It has a much smaller power pack and battery than most other BlackBerry smart phones in the market yet its battery life is satisfactory.
Buy the phone online in Malaysia
It is currently available in all networks. It can be bought online in more than 100 countries including Malaysia at the Malaysia Online Digital Mall. The stores are available in cities like Sarawak, Selangor; Seremban Terengganu among others. Potential buyers can compare and find the best price online at different stores.
Can you afford it in Malaysia?
The price of the BlackBerry Curve 9360 in Malaysia varies roughly between RM 820 ($270) and RM 1075 ($353). The actual price varies across the retailers. For example at Mobile Mega Mall, the BlackBerry Curve NANO Communication warranty goes at RM 720 at NANO Communication shop. In the same shop, the model with Brightstar warranty goes at RM 776. The price is even higher (between RM 800 and RM 960) in U Cellular Gallery, a different shop. This is due to the shipping fees charged depending on the location of origin and destination. It also depends on the type of shipment whether normal or express. For instance, there no charges for a normal shipment but charges RM 15 for shipment to Sarawak, Sabah and Labuan for express shipment. This price is suitable and compatible with the phone’s features; I mean the poor video but very sleek features.
Is the model more affordable in other countries?
Compared to the US price, buyers will spend lesser dollars on this item. The price is as high as about $353 in some of the Malaysian stores and as low as about $270 in others. The approximate price of the phone in US dollars is $270 and $353. The price in the US is thus very much affordable at around $230. Malaysia is not the only country with a high price because the product costs $365 in India. The price in Malaysia is therefore unfairly high considering the fact that most people will not engage all the functionalities. Besides, it lacks other features like a touch screen.
Guess who could be easily lured into buying it!
The BlackBerry Curve 9360 Smartphone might not be the best of the Black Berries but it is in line with other bold phone series like the 9780. It is typically meant for international users who love using the GPS and the NFC chip very often. It can easily lure the youth demographic as well as ladies who mostly like sleek and sexy phones. It is not a touch screen and will specifically be very useful for those who prefer an impressive QWERTY keyboard.
