BlackBerry 10 may be just around the corner (well, if that’s where 2013 is hiding), but that apparently isn’t going to stop RIM from releasing a new handset running the older iteration of its software. The BlackBerry Curve 9620 is on its way to Mexico, and we don’t think it will stop there. Rather, it should make its way to more emerging markets soon after.
The Curve 9620 runs BlackBerry OS 7.1, currently the latest and greatest that RIM has to offer. It will come with a 2.44-inch 480×360 246 ppi display, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor, a 5 MP camera with LED flash, 768 MB of RAM, 2 GB of built-in storage, microSD card support, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, an optical trackpad, PTT features, and a 1,450 mAh battery.
The image above, containing the full spec sheet and showing us what the BlackBerry Curve 9620 will look like was leaked from Nextel Mexico to CrackBerry. The smartphone should become available on that particular carrier next month. However, we have no word yet on pricing or an exact release date. That said, judging from the specs, this should be more of an entry-level device for those looking for their first BlackBerry (read: BBM) experience.
