Mobilicity announces BlackBerry Curve 9360 smartphone to deliver rich mobile experience

Latest next-gen BlackBerry smartphone offers enhanced communications and social media capabilities, plus three free months of BlackBerry Internet Service from Canada's smart mobile carrier

TORONTO, Nov. 2, 2011 /CNW/ - Mobilicity today added the BlackBerry® Curve™ 9360 smartphone to its sleek and savvy next-generation line-up of BlackBerry® smartphones.

Enhanced with an upgraded processor, display and memory, the new BlackBerry Curve 9360 smartphone provides consumers with the latest in BlackBerry communications, multimedia and productivity at an affordable, no-contract price.

Ideal for students, parents and other budget-minded mobile consumers who want to stay connected and productive, the next-gen BlackBerry Curve 9360 provides even more value when used in conjunction with Mobilicity's unlimited BlackBerry data offering. The plan includes unlimited email, web browsing, social networking and BBM™ (BlackBerry® Messenger) and can be added onto any Mobilicity plan for only $15 a month.

Powered by the new BlackBerry® 7 operating system, the ergonomically designed BlackBerry Curve 9360 smartphone features the iconic BlackBerry keyboard, a 5.0 megapixel camera, voice activated universal search, GPS and Wi-Fi® support, and fun, pre-installed social media apps.

The new Facebook® for BlackBerry smartphones (2.0) app introduces features like Facebook chat and BBM integration that makes it easier for users to connect with their Facebook friends in real time utilizing push notifications. Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones delivers real-time push notifications and Social Feeds integration.

BlackBerry 7 OS also includes several other pre-loaded applications, such as the Premium version of the mobile document editing suite Documents To Go, and BlackBerry® Protect, which enables users to back-up and secure data in the cloud and locate their misplaced BlackBerry smartphone using GPS or by remotely turning up the ringer volume.

Similar to the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900, announced by Mobilicity last month, the BlackBerry Curve 9360 smartphone incorporates Near Field Communications (NFC), which enables users to pair accessories, read SmartPoster tags and connect to other NFC-enabled devices with a simple tap of their smartphone.

Pricing, Promotions and Availability
The BlackBerry Curve 9360 is available for $299.99 at Mobilicity stores across Canada. To mark the launch of the new device, Mobilicity also extended its special next-generation BlackBerry promotion to provide its BlackBerry Curve 9360 smartphone customers with three free months of BlackBerry® Internet Service when they activate a monthly rate plan of $35 or higher with unlimited data.
