    I had been wondering what was happening with this device. I thought RIM had maybe scrapped it, as there hadnt been any leaks since we first heard about it via the 2011 roadmaps back in jan

    Thanks for the pics OP. Do you have any information on what US carriers might be getting this? Any spec info you can share? Do you like it?

    This phone looks awesome it seems RIM are really doing away with charging points though. A shame as it stopped wear and tear on the USB ports

    Since this is the orlando, it's possible this blog post was wrong and there will not be a touch screen/qwerty curve

    so what is the difference between this and the Torch 9850/60?

    other then the physical design of it...meaning the buttons are not sticking up, and the physical shape...

    too the eye the phone looks smaller but that may just be me, after all this will be a budget version of the torch in the curve line

    i believe the curve is smaller... along the lines of the storm.

    Don't forget the curve's are "low end" models.

    I'm guessing they won't have the same processor or memory built in.
    Some other features might have been left out.

    We'll have to wait and see

    i think this phone will share the same internal specs as the curve 9360

    Maybe its just a touch blackberry for T-Mobile and other carriers who are not getting the torch.

    Think what you want but I believe this picture is a fake. Both images are photoshoped, printed and photographed. The bezel isn't straigt because the paper the picture is printed on is waved. Even if the final device will look like this these explicit two images are fakes in my oppinion.

    Bold Touch, Curve Touch, Torch Touch. Jeez RIM make A touch screen phone and a qwerty keyboard phone already!

    No wonder you have so many problems supporting your hardware. You have way too many models with the same basic form factors and so consequently way too many OS's and release levels for them.

    The cost to support these must be huge! Get back to basics already. You don't see APPL with a dozen models. There may be 15 Android models, but they are NOT from one company.

    How can you expect your development and support people to keep up with this, let alone your customer base?

    this looks nicer than the torch, I think they really messed up with those buttons.

    I don't want to think these are fakes but wouldn't the phone say "insert sim card" on the top? Or does the lack of that, assuming it's real, suggest a cdma phone?

    Either way I would love for this phone to be a reality and come to T-Mobile. I really loved the Storm series and this looks to be just like it minus surepress. Wait...why would they call it a curve then....hmm...so many questions this picture stirs up.

    No wonder you have so many problems supporting your hardware. You have way too many models with the same basic form factors and so consequently way too many OS's and release levels for them.
    You have the three main os7 models that all use basically the same code, but they are not being arrogant enough to expect everyone to all like the same form factor, seems like a smart move since the mobile phone market is more than big enough to cope with that.

    As far as the curves, in a lot of countries these are sold off-contract as a pay as you go phone and are very popular so it also makes sense for them to have a lower end range of products, taking the uk as an example most of the carriers are still selling the 8520 alongside the 9300 because blackberries sell well enough as payg that they want a range, so the combination of the 9360 and this model is a very smart move by Rim even before you consider the other obvious plus to this device which is that it will work in a similar way to the Pearl and draw people to blackberry from feature phones since most of those now tend to be touch screens rather than candy bars like they used to be when the pearl came out.

    Personally, I wouldn't go near this phone because the 9900 is the ideal form factor for me, but I am not going to assume everyone has exactly the same requirements as me from their phone.

    Was wondering if you could update this thread with a thickness-shot cause I'm curious how thick this little badboy is. I think this phone is as big and slightly thinker then the slide out portion of my torch. How awesome would that be. Thanx for the post.

    EXACTLY!!! i talked to a t-mobile manager and he said they were getting an all touch blackberry under the curve name. it confused me when he told me this a month ago... but know it makes perfect sense.

    I'm not saying that it is, but this looks more like what a Storm 3 would have been. Same screen size, anyway. Appearances reminds me of my 9550. Maybe this is what's coming to Verizon. If it doesn't, I may make the switch to Sprint for that sweet 9850.
