BlackBerry Curve 9380 Philippines Price, Specs, Photos

Finally, a full touchscreen BlackBerry Curve handset!

BlackBerry Curve 9380 delivers the powerful social networking featues, ease-of-use and smaller footprint that distinguish the BB Curve family, while also offering users the choice of a larger display and an all-touch design.

Finely crafted BlackBerry Curve 9380 is the first full touchscreen smartphone in the BlackBerry Curve family. It features a responsive and brilliant 3.2-inch display and comes with preinstalled social networking apps that all BB fans have grown to love, including BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), Facebook for BlackBerry, Twitter for BlackBerry and the new Social Feeds app, that offer a fun and smoothly integrated mobile experience. The stylish handset also flaunts a 5 MegaPixel camera with flash and video recording, which allows users to easily capture and share moments with family and friends.

Given that BlackBerry Curve 9360 has just been released in the Philippines, I'm expecting BB Curve 9380 to reach our shores by Q1 2012. No official word yet from RIM on its SRP but my guesstimate is around Php 19,000 to Php 20,000.
