Late to the Ball is the BlackBerry Curve 9370, as it arrives from Verizon several months after the Curve 9350 and Curve 9360. We’re not sure why, as there really are no changes to the device, but better late than never, right? The BlackBerry Curve 9370 is a modest update to the Curve 9330, which we reviewed back in 2010, but at this point we would have preferred seeing the Curve 9380 instead. At its current price of $100 with 2-year Verizon contract, it’s got plenty of competition for other smartphones, some of which are 4G LTE enabled.
Included in the retail package is the BlackBerry Curve 9370, 1000 mAh battery, wall charger with detachable microUSB cable, pre-installed 2GB microSD memory card, and user guides.
If you’re a fan of the BlackBerry Curve 9330, then chances are you’ll like the more streamlined design of the Curve 9370. It’s quite thin, coming in at 0.43” thick, and lightweight at 3.49 oz, which makes it quite comfortable to hold. Even though the Curve 9370 is made out of plastic, it feels reasonably durable for daily use, and we appreciate the textured soft-touch coating on the back, which provides for a nice grip.
