The UK retailer has pegged the phone with a £319.99 SIM free price-tag, much-more reasonable that the £400 price-tag we spied over at FlagshipFones.co.uk. No exact release date has been confirmed, but Play’s promising to ship the phone within “4-5 days”.
Given the official nod last week, the Curve 9380 is essentially a cheap alternative to the Torch 9860. Within its slim 11.2mm-thick casing, the phone houses a reasonably-sized 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, dressed in the latest version of RIM’s BlackBerry software. Of course, this gives users one-touch access to the handset’s main features, including; BBM, BlackBerry App World, email, and Facebook and Twitter applications.
Other confirmed features include a a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with VGA video, integrated NFC smarts, HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, and 32GB of expandable memory.
