In today’s world, mobile phones are more than just a phone to talk... To stay in touch with friends and family members, access to email and business associates are just a few of reasons for the boosting importance of cell phones.

Smartphones in today’s world are getting smarter and smarter in terms of OS, Computing ability, connectivity, memory, design and technology. They more or less possess similar types of features like music playback, video capture, photography, mobile gaming and Internet services. So what allures users more when the features become common among the different brands of smartphones? Answer is simple and implicit. The users are attracted towards the sound quality, contemporary technology, easy handling, high speed connectivity, high quality video capturing etc.

Black Berry is designed to function as personal digital assistants, portable media players, internet browsers, gaming devices, cameras and much more. They are primarily known for their ability to send and receive email and instant messages while maintaining a high level of security.

I was trying to figure out the popularity of Blackberry phones even when the competing models are focussing on touch screen models. BlackBerry devices support a large variety of instant messaging features, with the most popular being the proprietary BlackBerry Messenger service. Their latest launches are the Blackberry curve 9220 and 9320.

I’ve been trying to figure out what the Curve’s secret is, what feature or combination of factors make it something people want in their purse or pocket. There’s something special about the Curve that makes it a hit.

The best impressing thing on the Blackberry curve is its QWERTY keyboard, optimized for "thumbing", the use of only the thumbs to type. It is very fast for typing. One-handed operation is where the keyboard really shines. It contains optical track pad which helps in smooth 4 way scrolling using Thumb. It’s like feather touch. While on the move, typing on Blackberry keyboard is really easy and fast. I personally prefer the Qwerty Keypad over Touch Screen as it makes typing much easier and faster when we have lots to type and it also provides accuracy and confidence.

Both models 9220 and 9320 feature the most recent operating system BlackBerry OS 7. BlackBerry 7.1 is a great OS for this little device and which is also known as the safest mobile Operating System ever followed by iOS than Android. With it you can make a mobile hotspot making your laptop a fully connected whenever you get data on your phone.

Sometimes, the simplest of them all will be more attractive. There is a dedicated key on blackberry Curve 9220 and 9320 for easy access to BlackBerry Messenger, RIM’s popular mobile social network in an instant and FM radio. With a single touch, we can get aces to encrypted instant messages, voice notes, images and videos via BlackBerry PIN. Some of the features of BBM include groups, bar-code scanning, lists, shared calendars, BBM Music and integration with apps and games using the BBM social platform.

Facebook and Twitter apps are included, as well as Social Feeds 2.0, which allows users to post updates to multiple social applications simultaneously and capture updates from news sources (RSS), social apps and instant messaging apps all in one consolidated view.

An easy way to get connected to your friends and dear ones is the Facebook Messenger app on Blackberry, where u receive all Facebook notifications and texts instantly on your Blackberry as a normal message. It comes in a message form. You even can reply back and it gets delivered through notifications and texts in your friends Facebook, so your friends are more likely to get them right away.

The 2 mega pixel camera on the Blackberry curve is a great companion in your personal life. There a various scene modes while capturing pictures. You have a mode to capture text, you are in a beach and need lovely beach scenes you have option for that, capture snow scenes, at night etc. You can send the photos through email or send to Facebook or share them through Bluetooth and believe me, all of these are with touch of few buttons which are really fast and easy. What more do you want, to capture the lovely memories and send to near ones and friends.

BlackBerry Curve 9320 is the 3G variant of the BlackBerry 9220

The 9320 has a non-touch 2.44-inch LCD display with a 320x240 pixel resolution. Other specs include a 3.2 MP camera with Flash, Wi-Fi, 512 MB RAM and ROM, microSD card slot, FM Radio and a 1450mAH battery.

They’re both small and light, measuring just over four inches tall and half an inch thick, and both weigh just a hair over 100 grams.

Through BlackBerry App World you can download various applications and themes onto the BlackBerry device.

With the phones' long lasting battery; we can get up to 7 hours of talk time or up to 28 hours of FM radio listening or music playback with headphones. With my continuous exploring and listening to music and watching videos, the battery lasted for 3 days without recharging!

I am sure that even in the age of touch screen, the exceptional Battery life of blackberry and the easy to use of keyboard are the real success of Blackberry.

My final verdict is, Get this phone if:

*You are a teenager who sends over 5000 messages a month.
* You are on a budget but wish to have smartphone.
* Wanted to get connected with popular social networking media.
* You want to listen to long hours of music or chat with friends for long and be free of battery charging.
