Blackberry 9220 compared with three year old 8520:
Same size (slightly thinner), same screen, same outdated 65K colours.( Come on blackberry, 65K colours was outdated at this price point in 2009).
Same 2mp camera, virtually similar specs.
The value additions are:- slightly increased memory, added radio, accelerometer, proximity and compass. The document reader should be attractive for those who read ebooks.
The price of the 9220 as compared to the 8520 is
US$ 200 (INR 10350) vs US$ 150 (INR 8000).
When compared to a six month old Samsung galaxy Y at US$ 135 (INR 7000), both are just blown away by the comparison. Today, Blackberry survives due to its sales in India & Iran.
There is no great difference between this phone (9220) and the three year old 8520. Same size,same screen, same camera. the other additions are, a later model blackberry OS, slightly increased memory, added Accelerometer, proximity, compass, and radio. The document viewer can be a plus for those who want to read ebooks. This model available for about US$ 200 (INR 10390) while the 8520 is for about US$ 150 (INR 8000). One would have expected greater changes after three years.....
vishal, 22 Apr 2012no gps, no 3g, only 2mp camera, no flash support in browser, waste of money.Dear vishal i think you'd not used blackberry ever, if you used it you surely say awesome one

waste of money.grow up kid. It's a professional phone. u can't expect more than these for that price.
do some home work before posting some junk
I think BlackBerry deserves to be uplifted! Because OS 7.1 is definitely a give away for us. When we talk about BlackBerry it's definitely an "AWESOME" smartphone. Because it really socialize our life more professional and i think BlackBerry Curve 9220 is SUPERRRBB!
no gps, no 3g, only 2mp camera, no flash support in browser,

Anonymous, 20 Apr 2012Blackberry is at a stand still now, this device is basically a copy of the curve 9300 and 8520... moreTotally dis agree with that comment of copy of Telstra Indy T50 - u 1st see again that Telstra Indy T50 & bb 9220. Vast difference in between that. So think before post.

Also note- screen resolution is superb. So don't think just go for it. :) I personally using 8520 . And I bought 9220 on the day of launch. Like 1st day 1 st mobile.. Awesome
Nothing interesting n this BB. to get this BB for 10,000 u can get samsung android mobile
The phone has only basic features and it's pretty expensive (around 60k). RIM should just pull out of the consumer market, they are no match for apple and android phones
I think they want to make a low price fone; I suspect it'll be in the price range of the curve2
Hemil, 21 Apr 2012Phone is good but 2mpx Thats not Good For bbcompare to 8520 BB 9220 is good
AnonD-21692, 22 Apr 2012ok.. Homestly can anyone tell me... what is the advantage of a BB over androids/ symbians??
