Research in Motion (RIM) today announced the launch of two new smartphones for for the socially-connected customers in Malaysia. The new BlackBerry Curve 9320 and BlackBerry Curve 9220 smartphones feature all the market-leading messaging and social networking capabilities that have helped make BlackBerry smartphones popular in Malaysia.

Hence, if you’re a Twitter-stalker and a Facebook addict, and you need a hardy smartphone to go with your social needs, then start jumping for joy because BlackBerry’s got it! Two of it, in fact.


Designed to be easy to use and easy to own, these new models both offer the longest lasting battery life yet in a BlackBerry Curve smartphone. This means you don’t have to start panicking right smack in the middle of the day when the yellow/orange “low battery” icon starts yelling at you on your BlackBerry screen.

It’s true – your BlackBerry’s battery will never run dangerously low again. At least not when you’re busy Facebook-ing.

When asked, Nicholas Horton (Managing Director of RIM, Indochina) said, “Today is an exciting day for us as we introduce two new smartphones here in Malaysia. These new BlackBerry Curve smartpones will definitely be a great upgrade for the first-time smartphone users as well as existing Curve customers looking for a step up in speed and functionality.”

“BlackBerry smartphones deliver a truly unique messaging and social networking experience for mobile users and we be;lieve Malaysians will also be very pleased by the ease-of-use and affordability of the BlackBerry Curve 9320 and 9220”, he added.

In terms of BlackBerry smartphones delivering a truly unique messaging and social networking experience, we’re going to say this much, nobody can argue with that. To date, there are more than 55 million BBM users worldwide, and the number is growing as we speak.
