BlackBerry Curve 9220, by RIM

Since we ranted about tech companies not putting India first, we are encouraged to see companies like Intel take India seriously with an India-first launch of the XOLO X900 recently. BlackBerry-maker RIM joins the crowd now, with the launch of the Curve 9220 last week. Touted as the company’s cheapest phone with the BlackBerry OS 7, it has been quoted as carrying a retail price tag of Rs. 10,990/- To entice prospective buyers, RIM is throwing in free apps “from BlackBerry App World worth 2500”. Apparently, these free apps would be provided over time. Follow us past the “Read more” link for full details.

Since RIM states that this phone is aimed for users new to the BlackBerry platform, the specifications list is not something stellar. While we know that specifications (such as RAM, processor speed, etc.) alone cannot make a phone great or small, we usually tend to look at the overall usability and functionality of the phone with respect to the competition. Having used the BlackBerry OS, we can say that the usability, seamless integration with online services and third-party app-availability is well below the competing iOS, Android or Windows Phone mobile Operating Systems. When Android phones such as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini with excellent internals – including the class-leading 720p recording rear camera – are available for roughly Rs. 1,000/- more, the new BlackBerry Curve 9220 becomes hard to recommend. For what it’s worth, if you’re a hardcore BlackBerry phone, and desperately want a BlackBerry with OS 7, and you don’t want to spend too much - this may be the device for you. However, with a 2 MP rear camera and without 3G, this smartphone seems like a tough sell for anyone.
