Conclusion: The Blackberry Curve 9360 is a well built, user-friendly device that performs the key Blackberry features like Messaging and Email very well and with a redesigned interface, new svelte design and better camera features, it’s certainly superior to the 9300. However, it's not the fastest, most powerful phone out there, to keep up with the rivals, a touchscreen would have been ideal and (something we always seem to be saying about RIM phones) app choice is still...
Pros: Svelte design and solid build, Affordable price, BBM and email, Resigned interface
Cons: No touchscreen, Lack of HD movie capture, Limited apps

Excerpt: The Video - Curve 9360 Of course, the ritual unboxing of the BlackBerry Curve 9360 had to happen. Watch Bla1ze walk through the new Curve in detail. Expand for full view or hit the link below.
Pros: Slim, lightweight, Much improved web browser, Return to the rugged feeling the Curve series had, Excellent build quality, RIM has moved away from making the BlackBerry Curve line feel cheap. Instead, they've given it a more solid, sleek feel all while making sure it still remains cost effective for end-users.
Cons: No HD video recording, Battery door sucks, EDoF camera (opinion based), The 800MHz processor still shows signs of slowness, while other devices got bumped to 1.2GHz, the Curve 9360 did not. The lack of HD video recording is pretty far up there on our bad list as well to say the least (and we're still debating how big a deal it is to lack autofocus on the camera).
Excerpt: One of the first surprises of the 9360 is how slim and sleek it is in comparison to its older siblings. The 9360 is only 11 mm thick, as aginst the 9300′s 13.9 mm. Beyond the slim lines, it is the first Curve to deliver that premium quality feel. It almost looks and feels like a Bold.
Summary: It migh lack the power and prowess of its bigger brother, the Bold 9900 - but given that it costs twice as much with roughly the same functionality, you can see why this budget BB earned its 4 stars
Pros: Sleek design, Slick keyboard, Budget option, Has NFC
Cons: Average camera, Slower processor, Video not much cop
