Bahrain launch for BlackBerry Curve 9380
Manama, December 22, 2011
Research In Motion (RIM) has announced the availability of the new BlackBerry Curve 9380 smartphone in Bahrain, the first BlackBerry Curve smartphone with a touch display.
The smartphone is an easy-of-use small handset that distinguishes the Curve family, while also offering users the choice of a larger display and an all-touch design, a statement from the company said.
The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is powered by the new BlackBerry 7 OS, which delivers a faster and richer user experience. It also includes the ability to manage personal content separately from corporate content, and comes with a variety of personal and productivity apps out of the box.
The popular universal search capability has also been enhanced with support for voice-activated search, so users can simply speak to begin searching their device and the web for information, the statement said.
In addition, the BlackBerry Curve 9380 smartphone includes built-in support for Augmented Reality and NFC, allowing users to connect with the world around them in new ways. With the Wikitude Augmented Reality application, users can find nearby BBM (BlackBerry messenger) contacts in real-time, read reviews about restaurants close to them, or get the story behind an interesting landmark and points of interest.
NFC also enables many new capabilities, including the ability to make mobile payments, pair accessories or read SmartPoster tags with a simple tap of the smartphone, it said.
The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is now available in Bahrain via authorised retailers. – TradeArabia News Service
