The BlackBerry Curve gets a new color. It may bring novelty into the Research In Motion signed cell phones which all look pretty much the same. This may be an improvement some opinions and a dislike for others. Actually it is interesting that RIM finally begins introducing some color in their designs.
The BlackBerry Curve Sunset will be available in more colors; actually its design will be covered by a combination of red and orange with black lining around the display. Not bad for Research In Motion, but it is not a very elegant design. T-Mobile will release the BlackBerry Curve Sunset starting August 4.
The handset comes with WiFi and quad-band GSM connectivity (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz). The BlackBerry Curve Sunset will have GPRS and EDGE and a full QWERTY keyboard for easy email and instant messaging. It will also have trackball navigation, a 320 x 240 pixel display, myFaves capabilities. The entertainment part is covered by a media player and probably by a 2 megapixel camera with flash which will give image taking a modest quality.
Internet capabilities are pretty much basic as it has just a full Web browser and email support. The device comes with Bluetooth and microSD card support. Its battery can last up to 4 hours in talktime and 17 days in stand by. The BlackBerry Curve Sunset is about 110 grams heavy and measures 107 x 61 x 15 mm.
Well, we have to accept that the Sunset version is not great looking and it would be interesting to know how many devices were sold. But from T-Mobile’s 31 million subscribers, a decent number will surely be interested in the BlackBerry Curve Sunset.
A number of unofficial photos have been leaked and we present them here.
