|Blackberry Curve 9220|
This latest new version of the Curve is an affordable low-end smartphone targeted at young consumers as it is priced at Rs 10,999. Other high end devices from RIM are targetted at the enterprise BlackBerry consumers.
This low-end phone was launched today in India by RIM's brand ambassador Katrina Kaif. New BlackBerry Curve 9220 has a dedicated key for accessing BlackBerry Messenger and FM radio and has a long battery life compared to high-end phones.
