-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for cnet.com. And this is a First Look at the Blackberry Curve 9360 for T-Mobile. The Curve 9360 is the first Blackberry Curve to run Blackberry's latest operating system, which is Blackberry OS 7. It does not have a touchscreen like its Bold cousin, but still a pretty colorful screen as you can see here. It's quite small at 2.5 inches. The resolution is 360 x 480. Underneath that, you do get the usual Blackberry controls as well as the middle optical trackpad. Below that, you get a 4-row full QWERTY keyboard. Even though the keyboard is quite small, the keys are raised and separated for easy texting and typing. The phone is quite slim and svelte. It measures around 0.4 inch thick. On the top is a headset jack as well as the screen lock key. On the side here are 2 very skinny volume controls. On the other side is the micro USB charging port. On the back is a 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash. Features of the Blackberry Curve 9360 are fairly simple for an entry-level Blackberry. You get the usual enterprise e-mail features of course as well as WiFi and GPS. The phone supports T-Mobile's 3G network, but not its 4G or HSPA plus network. The Blackberry Curve 9360 is available for around $80 with a new 2-year service agreement from T-Mobile. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the First Look at the Blackberry Curve 9360.
