First few hours with BlackBerry Curve 9220

First few hours with BlackBerry Curve 9220

Although, Curve 9220 doesn't look any different from the other BlackBerrys, it still has a solid build with round edges that makes it comfortable to hold.

Nidhi SingalRiding high on the success of the BlackBerry Curve 8520 for over a couple of years now, Research In Motion has now introduced BlackBerry Curve 9220.

Compact, the Curve 9220 has the signature BlackBerry look - a 2.44 inch non-touch display, with a well-spaced QWERTY. Although, it doesn't look any different from the other BlackBerrys, it still has a solid build with round edges that makes it comfortable to hold.

Looking beyond looks, we spotted a BBM key on the left panel that instantly launched BlackBerry Messenger application on the phone. Although nothing out of the world but it is a handy feature for BBM addicts.

While the Curve 9220 runs on BlackBerry 7.1, it does bring a few changes to the smartphone. We also spotted FM Radio (something new for BlackBerry but not for us). The 2 MP camera is a bit too less for Rs 10,990.

Watch out for the full review in the June issue of Gadgets & Gizmos.
