Teal blue isn’t exactly the hippest of colors, but hey, at least it’s not boring black.
Just to refresh your memory, social networking is the name of the game here as these two new Curves proudly boast of a dedicated BBM key, a first for any BlackBerry smartphone in RIMâs pretty extensive BlackBerry lineup. These two also already run on BlackBerry 7.1, the latest version of the BlackBerry mobile platform.
Both are already out now and readily available on Globe. The BlackBerry Curve 9220 is free on MySuperPlan 499, while the Curve 9230 is free on BlackBerry Unli Surf 999. Order it here.
For everyone else, specifically Android and iOS fan boys, just mozy on along âcause there’s nothing for you here.
