RIM’s first all-screen Curve has sashayed over to the FCC. Two models of the BlackBerry Curve 9380, the REA70UW and REB70UW, are included in the latest filing, which goes into typical laborious detail on radio frequencies and the like. Thankfully, those myriad charts and graphs reveal support for WCDMA band IV, meaning that the phone plays nice with T-Mobile’s 3G network. Let’s just hope that, if given the chance to strut its stuff in the US market, it follows the Curve family tradition of arriving keenly priced. We’ll have to wait and see if it hits our wallet’s sweet spot, but for those more interested in the phone’s internals, the source link beckons below.
We found it hard to get excited over that other recent QWERTY-less BlackBerry, but we’ve swallowed a lungful of fresh air and approached this new 3.2-inch, 800MHz Curve 9380 with an open mind. It’s the first touch-only device in the entry-level Curve family and it deserves to be considered on its own merits. So, if you’re in the market for a relatively cheap smartphone that hooks up seamlessly to RIM’s persistently popular ecosystem, and which puts BlackBerry Messenger and BBM Music at your fingertips (rather than your thumbs), then please read on for our hands-on video and impressions.

Now that we’ve seen all the leaks and heard all the rumors, RIM has finally announced the BlackBerry Bold 9790 and Curve 9380, welcoming two new members to the OS 7 family. Picking up where the Bold 9780 left off, the comparatively higher-end 9790 boasts a 2.44-inch touchscreen display with 360 x 480 resolution, and is powered by a 1GHz CPU. The QWERTY-equipped handset also ships with 8GB of onboard memory and features a microSD slot that offers up to 32GB of additional space. The Curve 9380, meanwhile, is an all touchscreen affair, with a 3.2-inch, 480 x 360 display and a five megapixel camera. RIM hasn’t offered any other details on the 9380′s specs, though the company did specify that both devices will offer NFC and augmented reality support, and will come pre-loaded with BlackBerry Messenger, Documents To Go Premium, and BlackBerry Protect. No word yet on pricing or availability, though RIM says to expect a launch “over the coming weeks.” Find more details in the full PR, after the break.
