The next generation of the low-cost BlackBerry Curve 8520/8530 has surfaced: the BlackBerry Curve 9300. The BlackBerry Curve 9300 looks very similar to the 95XX series, with a familiar back case, media keys, rubberized quick keys and chicklet style keyboard. The 9300 also has a Curve 8900 style silver bezel around it which is a nice addition to the product line. According to the leak on CrackBerry, the 9300 adds 3G and the WiFi n standard to the 8500’s specs, while maintaining the 320×240 display.
What’s interesting about this device is the memory (only 256MB). We’ve been hearing a rumor that the 9700 won’t be OS 6 ready due to lack of memory, and it runs at 256MB as well. This suggests that the 9300 won’t be OS 6 capable, which, if true, is very disappointing. Only time will tell with this one.
