Last Tuesday RIM, together with Globe, launched the BlackBerry Curve 9220 and 9320. These two new members of the Curve family are currently the most affordable devices in RIM’s BlackBerry portfolio, and are currently being offered by Globe telecom in affordable plans. The BlackBerry Curve 9220 will be available for free with Plan 499 plus a Php 99 unlimited chat subscription. The BlackBerry Curve 9320 will come free with My Super Plan BlackBerry Unli Surf Combo Plan 999. Prepaid customers can grab the BlackBerry Curve 9220 at Php 9,990 and the BlackBerry Curve 9320 at Php 11,990.

Since these two devices are obviously aimed at the budget market, you’re not going to get a lot of cutting edge features. The BlackBerry Curve 9320 has a 2.4-inch screen, QWERTY keyboard, touch-sensitive optical trackpad, WiFi, 3G and is powered by BlackBerry OS 7.1. The BlackBerry Curve 9220 is essentially an identical version of the 9320, with the only difference being that it does not have a 3G module packed in it.
