BlackBerry Curve 9380 / Orlando NFC

BlackBerry Curve 9380 NFCBlackBerry Curve 9380

No exact date and no country names in RIM’s press release.
Expect it end of November / December 2011.
Now, december, in many countries available.

What I found in reviews;
– slim, light and powerful
– solid build
– functional and future-proof
– no front camera
– no physical QWERTY keyboard
– more for media than for productivity
– not cheap

update jan.10; Certified for VISA PayWave

BlackBerry Tag demo, NFC sharing app., expected with O.S. update 7.1.

update jan.1; BlackBerry 7.1 O.S. for some customers available (ota update).
Share content between BlackBerry devices; by tapping two NFC Phones together,
“you’ll be able to transfer ringtones, voice notes, contacts, images, videos, calendar items,
documents, spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, PDFs and browser links”.
Developers can add other data types to the list of supported content!
Like Android Beam, you can share almost anything.
