RIM announced the BlackBerry Curve 9380 all-touch smartphone with a 3.2-inch high resolution display running BlackBerry 7 OS with a 806 MHz processor. It comes preinstalled with social networking apps, including BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), Facebook, Twitter and Social Feeds apps, that offer a fun, easy and smoothly integrated mobile experience. This compact and stylish handset features a 5-megapixel camera with flash and video recording, allowing users to easily capture and share their favorite moments with family, friends and colleagues.
The finely crafted BlackBerry Curve 9380 is the first all-touch smartphone in the BlackBerry Curve family. The new BlackBerry 7 OS delivers a faster and richer user experience with improved browsing, voice-activated searches, and support for Augmented Reality and NFC (Near Field Communications).

The BlackBerry Curve 9380 includes built-in support for Augmented Reality and NFC, allowing users to connect with the world around them in fresh new ways. With the Wikitude Augmented Reality application, users can find nearby BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) contacts in real-time, read reviews on restaurants close to them, or get the story behind an interesting landmark and points of interest. NFC also enables many new and exciting capabilities, including the ability to make mobile payments, pair accessories or read SmartPoster tags with a simple tap of the smartphone.
