The rumored Curve 9320 is poised to become RIM’s next assault on the smartphone low end one of the places where it hopes to keep making a splash over the coming months, particularly in emerging markets. Though RIM hasn’t officially announced the device, it’s been leaked pretty thoroughly at this point and it’s exactly what you’d expect: a minimalist, traditionally-designed BlackBerry with the usual portrait QWERTY trim running OS 7.1.
The materials look simple as you’d expect for a device in the Curve range, as opposed to the higher-end Bold line and although the form factor won’t appeal to anyone other than BlackBerry traditionalists, the flowing curves arguably do a decent job of keeping up with the kind of industrial design you’d expect in 2012.
