We’d heard rumours, but now the BlackBerry Curve 9380 is official. This is RIM’s first emailer under the affordable Curve brand to ditch the keyboard entirely. The Canadian company is keeping quiet on what’s under the bonnet, but the BlackBerry Curve 9380′s touchscreen is a smallish 3.2-inch 480×360 panel, and it sports a 5MP camera, as well as NFC for wireless contacts and payments down the line.
Alongside the BlackBerry Curve 9380, RIM is launching BBM Music in the UK today, which lets you keep 50 songs at any one time, and stream all the songs from your contacts’ libraries as well. We should be going hands on with both later on today, but in the meantime click through for the official photo gallery. The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is out in the “coming weeks”.
