RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 review: BlackBerry for beginners

Josh Miller)

While the RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 is a decidedly lower-end phone than RIM’s Bolds and Torches, we think it’s a great option for those still loyal to the BlackBerry brand.

It comes with the company’s latest mobile operating system, BlackBerry 7 OS; it has a decent physical keyboard; and it’s definitely an improvement over the previous Curves with its faster processor and better feature set. It even has support for NFC and for T-Mobile’s UMA-based Wi-Fi calling service. For only $79.99 after a new two-year service agreement, the Curve 9360 is good entry-level smartphone for those wanting to give BlackBerry 7 OS a shot.

The good
The RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 is slim and compact with a tactile physical keyboard. It supports NFC and the BlackBerry 7 OS, and can make calls over Wi-Fi.

The bad
The RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360’s side buttons are a little too skinny for us, there’s no HD video capture, and it doesn’t support T-Mobile’s high-speed HSPA+ network.

The bottom line
The RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 makes a great entry-level offering for those already in the BlackBerry camp.
