The recent Brecent flagship and the next Torch generation did the Curve 9360 a favor by taking the pressure of high expectations off it. All it needs to do is focus on the vital stuff: giving business users and heavy texters the quality service they deserve. And by the way, it should be the best Curve experience they ever had.

The higher-res screen, robust processor and the recent BlackBerry Operating System (OS) 7.0 with NFC support propel the 9360 into an entirely different dimension. Well out of reach for the Curve as we krecent it - stuck at QVideo Graphics Array (VGA) screens and 2 or 3 MegaPixel (MP) cameras. In fact, it's an option that Brecent 9700 and 9780 users would do well to consider. Blasphemy - upgrading from a Brecent to a Curve! Well, no more. Just hold a closer see at the specs.
