The all-touch BlackBerry Curve 9380 was once a rumoured device, then a heavily leaked online device. Now, TELUS is the first to bring this to Canadians. It’s tiny at 60 x 109 x 11.2 mm, comes with BlackBerry 7 OS and a full 3.2-inch touchscreen – overall design looks like a shrunken Torch 9860. The 9380 is an very entry level smartphone and inside there’s a 800Mhz Marvell processor, 5MP camera and surprisingly NFC capabilities are built-in. TELUS has priced this at $369.99 on a no-term and falls to $49.99 on a 3-year. Realistically it should drop to $0 in a couple weeks.

    Love the idea of a physical keyboard, which this doesn’t have, so what does this do that my HTC Wildfire S/LG Optimus One/Chic/Samsung Galaxy 551/Gio doesn’t?

      Last time I checked, it doesn’t have BBM? *rolls eyes*

      It has BBM, it is even on the screen of the display phone. 2’nd row of icons on the right.

    $370 for this + monthly BIS fee, or $350 for Nexus S? Answer is obvious to me.
