RIM to launch new BlackBerry Curve handset with OS 7

New BlackBerry Curve release imminent suggests RIM's UK Chief

Having officially unveiled the new BlackBerry OS 7 operating system yesterday alongside five new devices RIM looks set to add to its budget smartphone range in the coming months as the company’s UK chief hints at more handset arrivals.

Speaking with T3’s sister site TechRadar Stephen Bates, RIM’s UK chief hinted towards another imminent handset arrival stating that Curve users and the company’s budget smartphone demographics will see a product announcement shortly.

"We're learning a lot about the market we've exploited with Curve; that range helped us open up new price points as well as services such as BBM and email,” Bates said.

"What's interesting is the feedback we're getting is once those people have become used to those services is they want to do more, and we see that group of customers as a great base for BlackBerry. So we intend to serve them very well at a future point."

Yesterday’s BB7 announcement saw the Canadian firm unveiled the BlackBerry Torch 9810 and the BlackBerry Bold 9900. Both devices are to land sporting the new BlackBerry OS 7 and a 1.2GHz processor with the BlackBerry Bold 9900 UK release date confirmed for August 18th.
