The unannounced BlackBerry Curve Apollo 9370 has been spotted now in a lengthy hands-on video and the first noticeable thing in the video is that the Apollo is really thin just like the Bold 9900. The new RIM smartphone features a 480 x 360 pixels landscape display, 3G (HSPA), Wi-Fi, 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, and an 800MHz processor and Apollo 9370 will have a CDMA version………
Blackberry Curve is the price of RIM products and has brought much success for the company and RIM has had a worthy upgrade steps for the new version, codenamed Curve Apollo for GSM and CDMA Sendona. New Curve stronger, better screen and also much thinner than the current Curve 9300. The first sensation on hand to see Apollo‘s great, it’s only 11mm thin, ie more than 0.5 mm Dakota correct. Designed with a curved top and bottom voting machine election increases the feeling thinner. While RIM is still thin but very complete Apollo built, sturdy than the current Blackberry. The function keys are changed on the Apollo design, similar to 9300 than the 97xx machines. Left side we have two up and down volume keys, camera key, and especially a small button located between the two volume keys act as a mute button cum stand by if kept long. All the keys are thin and of Apollo and designed into the machine, very nice. On top is a key lock button in the center but instead left as the current difference, a little hard pressed. Left side we have designed a microUSB port other than the beautiful and modern.
For those fans on the old 8900, the Apollo seems to be a worthwhile upgrade, although its level is no longer the same. Apollo also separate keyboard and not sticky like the 97xx machines. However, the keyboard feels a bit stiffer, will be quite hard to press if you are uncomfortable. In addition, four key listen, call, back and the option of Apollo, all stood and flat, not as soft as the existing plant. This is clearly not due to design or test that the key to that feeling. Screen is the most significant change of Apollo when it uses a generic machine with high current Blackberry, achieving a resolution of 480×360 instead of 320×240 now. The display quality of this product is very good, no worse than the 9700 or 9780. Speed feedback on the Apollo is great, feels faster than the 9800 thanks to a Marvell Tavor CPU MG-1 with 800MHz clock. The chip architecture together with the 9800 chip clocks are present, but more advanced, well over 512MB RAM. Apollo is a 5MP camera and VGA camera, do not shoot HD video as Dakota. Brand new battery with the code name EM, very thin and only 1000mAh capacity, not 1050mAh as the source earlier.
