BlackBerry fan? Then sit up and listen. Because RIM and Globe have just launched two new BlackBerry Curve devices, and the good news is that they come free with some pretty affordable plans.
First off, the devices. It’s the BlackBerry Curve 9220 and the BlackBerry Curve 9320. They actually look alike, so you can’t tell the difference between these two units just by staring at them. In fact, they’re mostly the same, except that the 9320 also comes with Mobile Hotspot support, its camera has a flash, it does videos, plus it comes with onboard GPS for geotagging.
What they do have in common is a greater interest in social networks. Facebook for BlackBerry and Twitter for BlackBerry come standard, along with Social Feeds 2.0. And, get this, these two devices include a new feature: a dedicated BBM key so that you have one-touch access to RIM’s mobile social network. Both the 9220 and the 9320 also come with a built-in FM radio.
And now the plans.
You can get the BlackBerry 9220 for free under Globe’s Postpaid MySuperPlan 499, which features a consumable Php 499 monthly, and which comes with unlimited BlackBerry Messenger access. You do need to also be subscribed to the 99 peso per month BB Chat though. Oh, and you get to choose a couple of freebies from Globe too (refer to their postpaid plans).
The BlackBerry 9230, on the other hand, comes free under Globe’s Postpaid Plan 999 BlackBerry UnliSurf Combo. This package gives you unlimited surfing, BlackBerry Messenger, Twitter, FB and email access, along with Php 400 that’s consumable. And a freebie from Globe (again, refer to their postpaid plans).
So when are the phones available? Well, the BlackBerry 9220 should actually already be available since yesterday at stores nationwide. The BlackBerry 9230, on the other hand, should already be available online for pre-orders.
