BlackBerry Curve 9360 landing on 19 September

It's gone a little quiet since the official launch of the BlackBerry Curve 9360, when a shelf date of 'soon' was given. Well, now we have what we believe is an actual shelf date – 19 September 2011.

The date comes from Carphone Warehouse. According to TechRadar, the company is now offering the BlackBerry Curve 9360 for £330, which seems quite heavy for a phone that we presumed would be the new entry-level BlackBerry, even if it does have BlackBerry OS 7 on-board. It's about double the price of the model it is believed to be replacing.

If you want a contract deal, we expect those to be available from the same day. Both Vodafone and Three have confirmed they will be selling the smartphone on monthly deals, although neither has offered up a price as yet. Probably be around the £20 mark if you want the free handset.

For that, you will get an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 2.44-inch display with 480x360 resolution, a five-megapixel camera with LED flash and VGA video shooting, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi plus NFC connectivity too. Not sure if it's a £300+ phone, but if you really want one, you know where to go.
