I went to see dad this morning. Dad uses a BlackBerry Curve 9360 on the MTN network. The 9360 is the sleekest Curve in town. Period. It looks and feels very premium.
In fact, it makes the junior Curve 9320 look bland. I had no problems with the looks of the 9320 until this morning when I saw dad’s 9360 again. I immediately sort of didn’t like the looks anymore.
But that’s where the superiority of the 9360 ends – looks and feel.
The 9320 runs a newer version of the BlackBerry OS – 7.1 as against 7.0 on the 9360.
The 9320 has a much beefier battery, 1450mAh as against the 9360’s 1000mAh. As a matter of fact, the only complaint that dad has is battery life.
The 9320 has a built-in FM radio.
And then, the 9320 costs less. About N20,000 less.
Suddenly, I don’t feel so bad about the 9320 anymore. But darn! The 9360 is just sexy! Sigh. There’s no justice in this world.
