Research in Motion (RIM) is demonstrating its new BlackBerry Curve smartphone, which it describes as the smallest and lightest full QWERTY BlackBerry smartphone. The handset features a large display, easy-to-use keyboard and trackball navigation system.
The BlackBerry Curve measures 4.2 inches by 2.4 inches by 0.6 inches and weighs approximately 3.9 ounces. The ultra-bright 320 by 240 display includes RIM's light-sensing technology that automatically adjusts back-lighting levels for indoor, outdoor and dark environments. The smartphone comes with a 2-megapixel camera with 5x digital zoom, built-in flash, self-portrait mirror and full-screen viewfinder. The audio system plays music and videos through the handset's integrated speaker or through the 3.5 mm stereo jack.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
