BlackBerry Curve 9220 Now Official for India Launching April 19th

 Curve 9220 Dedicated BBM Button Apps

I think this is the first time RIM has released a phone specifically for India but it seems like the Curve 9220 is exactly that. RIM calls it the easy to use and easy to own BlackBerry Smartphone for India. It is packing OS 7.1 along with its new dedicated BBM key. This is also the first BlackBerry to ship with a built in FM Radio which is being touted as a way to listen to the radio without a data plan or services. It offers up 7 hours of talk time and up to 28 hours of music playback or FM radio listening.

The offer is valid until June 30, 2012 and includes a wide range of apps that will roll out in a phased manner, including utilities, games and other apps. Pencil Camera, Photo Studio Pro, Horoscope Oracle – Follow Your Lucky Stars, Drive Safely Pro and Ultimate Cricket are just a few of the popular apps that will be available through this promotional offer.

  1. FM radio is cool! I would like this phone

  2. Ronen, can you send direct BBM messages through that dedicated convienance key?

    • Not that I can think of. I think it just fires up BBM

    • Hi @Berry 7,

      Ty from RIM here. I wanted to chime in to answer your question. Yes, you can send direct BBM messages by utilizing the dedicated BBM key. Plus, with the addition of BBM connected apps, such as Twitter and Facebook, you’re able to easily stay connected with all of your contacts at the push of a button.

      For more information about the dedicated BBM key or BBM connected apps, check out this page on our website:
