The BudgetBerry is back, and it's packing a new design and upgraded internals!  Aaron takes a look at RIM's newest device, the BlackBerry Curve 9360, which is available at T-Mobile now.  It offers an 800 MHz processor, 2.4-inch display (which sadly, isn't a touchscreen), 5-megapixel camera with flash, a full QWERTY keyboard, and BlackBerry 7.

When comparing it to the older Curve devices, it's an upgrade, but it's painfully behind its mid-range competitors.  Keyboard lovers may like this device, but if media and apps are what you enjoy, you'll want to look to Android.  Part 1 of 2.

Hansel Starley All blackberries are smartphones. Heck the are the Original smartphones. What's with the hate?
Itsok Imawelder BB is the smartphone, just because a phone does apps, and has a fast prosessor doesn't make it a smartphone! Android is only skin deep.
Tim Fuhrmann Its as much a smartphone as any other BB. And in my personal experience, more of a smartphone than any android phone I have ever used.
Eric Quach just because Blackberry has not enough apps, doesn't mean its outdated. lol. its actually a true phone for business users.
Mark Fisher Jr. I think they should discontinue that one and replace it with something more bigger and better.
