RIM has unveiled the new BlackBerry Curve 9320, which aims to provide a social experience for phone users.
The smartphone will contain the usual BlackBerry messaging system, as well as other social-centric features, 3G connectivity and a long battery life.
Carlo Chiarello, executive vice-president of Smartphone Business at Research in Motion, said that the new Curve had been designed to make it easier for users to stay "socially connected".
"The new BlackBerry Curve 9320 will be especially popular with customers upgrading to a smartphone for the first time and existing Curve customers looking for a step up in speed and functionality," he stated.
Featuring the new Social Feeds 2.0 app, the Curve allows users to post updates to various social networking accounts simultaneously and to view instant messages in one place.
Extended battery life also means that it will work well as a media device, allowing up to 30 hours of FM radio listening or music playback with headphones.
