Long since outstripped in North America by Android and Apple, Research in Motion, the maker of the BlackBerry, is launching a new, low-end smartphone in the Indian market. The handset, dubbed the Curve 9220, is not exactly packed with firepower – an FM radio and the BlackBerry 7.1 OS is about as good as it gets – but RIM is betting that the Curve will be a success, especially among teenage and twenty-something users.
