BlackBerry Curve 9360 Has NFC Built In? (Pictures)

BlackBerry Curve 9360 Packing NFC

We mentioned when RIM announced the BlackBerry Torch 9810 & 9850/9860 that we were surprised they did not have NFC built in like the Bold 9900 and 9930. We just assumed that meant that previous reports of the BlackBerry Curve 9360 packing NFC were also incorrect. One of our new tipsters did some sleuthing and found that the BlackBerry Curve 9360 actually HAS NFC according to its OS. Odd right?

As you can see in these pictures the BlackBerry Curve 9360 reports back that it has NFC along with the same options as the Bold 9900. Also notice the little NFC lightning bolt style icons in the picture above. The main oddity is that it does not have the NFC antenna in the battery door like the Bold 9900. I am not sure what to make of that. Let us know what you think!

  1. RIM is a very odd company sometimes. lol

  2. weird

    but again.. I don’t care about NFC, nor will anyone else for at least 2 years

  3. This don’t make sense at all rim

  4. I guess this is better then just the 9900 having it, but it doesn’t really make sense either…

  5. That would be a nice plus for the curve if there is any reason to use it but i love that the flash is finally back on the curve.

    Its kinda funny coz i see the icon on the screen for NFC but no pins in the back to actually confirm it is a NFC curve.

  6. Let’s be honest. They went for the curve because the curve series has always been about transitioning users of other devices to BlackBerry’s. They get mass marketed. So they would hit more end users this way.
