Oh Dear: The Most Exciting Thing About the New BlackBerry Is a Dedicated BBM Button

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

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.
