What a bizarre week for RIM news. First we heard that the Canadians were ditching the consumer market, then they weren’t, and simultaneously it was suggested that BlackBerry 10 might be licensed to the likes of HTC and Samsung.
Now a device simulator for the upcoming BlackBerry Curve 9220 has been unveiled a few months ahead of the handset’s release. Ok, that’s not that weird, actually.
The BlackBerry Curve 9220 isn’t exactly poised to set the world on fire. Looking at the spec sheet, it’s very much an entry level handset.
For starters, we’ve got a 2.44in display (320 x 240, which yields 164 dpi), 512MB ‘internal persistent storage’, 512MB RAM, micro SD support, and a 2MP rear camera with 5x zoom.
There’s also the obligatory BlackBerry Curve QWERTY keyboard, an FM radio and Wi-Fi connectivity.
We’re expecting the BlackBerry Curve 9220 to land in mid-2012ish. Price and release date to follow.
