BlackBerry Curve 9320 is currently available from authorized partners and carriers at a RRP of S$328. Anyone feels interested? As smartphone screen gets bigger, RIM chooses to stick to what they think is best for consumers, a small screen with QWERTY keyboard.
I have to admit that in the past, physical keyboard is a must as soft keyboards are not up to standard. However, over the years, soft keyboards like Swiftkey, SWYPE, GO keyboard and other third party keyboards are getting better. Time for RIM to reflect on it?
For those who are interested, some links to learn more about the device.
