BlackBerry Curve 9220


The BlackBerry Curve 9220 is a low-cost addition to the Curve range, heading exclusively to the Indian market. The menu, 9220 is much better than 8520 , processor and O.S also improved .

You might guess that this is a step down from the old Curve 9300 from the name, and indeed this is a very basic device that probably wouldn’t appeal to most other markets.


This is a GSM-only handset with no 3G support, but it does support WiFi connectivity. The display is a 2.44″ 320 x 240 pixel panel, and on the back is a basic 2 megapixel camera. There’s an in-built FM radio, but the 9220 lacks GPS. The internal memory is a useful 512MB of Flash paired with 512MB of RAM, plus there is a microSD slot. The Curve 9220 also supports Bluetooth and has a 3.5mm audio socket.
