BlackBerry Curve 9220 launched in India for Rs 10,990

We were the first ones to report exclusively that the BlackBerry Curve 9220 will be launched in April. And today that day has finally arrived as the Canadian vendor has launched the successor to its Curve 8520. The device made it to Flipkart before getting officially announced and confirmed the specs which were listed by us in our earlier post. The handset sports a 2.44-inch QVGA display, inbuilt memory of 512MB which is expandable up to 32GB and a 2.0MP fixed focus shooter at the back with 5X digital zoom. The major improvement has come in the form of Wi-Fi connectivity, FM radio, a dedicated BBM key, BlackBerry OS 7.1 and overall better build quality.

The BlackBerry Curve 9220 carries an MRP of Rs 10,990. Buyers will get Rs 2,500 worth of free apps from App World till June 30. RIM claims it has the longest battery life of all BlackBerry Curve smartphones. The Curve 9220 will be available in stores from tomorrow. We’ll be doing a hands-on of the BlackBerry 9220 shortly, so stay tuned. However, just for a quick specs-recap, hit the break below.
