In addition to scoring some quick intimate moments with the brand new BlackBerry Bold 9790 (Bellagio) yesterday, we were also able to check out the company’s first ever touch Blackberry Curve, the BlackBerry Curve 9380 (Orlando). The styling of the Curve 9380 is a mix of the BlackBerry Bold on the top of the handset, and it continues down into a design much like the BlackBerry Torch 9850. Around back, the phone looks more like the traditional BlackBerry Curve smartphone that we all know. As far as raw specifications, the Curve 9380 will feature an 800MHz processor, 3.25-inch display, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture support, 1GB of built-in storage and NFC. Look for it to be released in the coming months, though a source at Telus told BGR that it could come sooner rather than later. Check out all of the photos in our gallery, which is linked below.
