RIM's latest update of its Curve BlackBerry series has all of the usual buttons we've come to expect from the QWERTY classic range, only now there's a specific hotkey for instant access to the company's BBM messaging service. Amazing.

RIM's selling this new model BB in two tech spec varieties, with the 9220 and 9320 differing a little in terms of camera spec (2-Megapixel and 3.1-Megapixel), with only the 9320 coming with a flash around the back. Both feature a 1450 mAh battery, plus a 2.44″ 320×240 LCD display, and will arrive running BB's 7.1 OS.

There's currently no word on US price, release date, or carrier availability.
