Just says ago RIM announced the all new BlackBerry Curve 9380. Now if you’ve been following the news about this device, it’s no normal curve. The new Curve touch features a full 3.23″ touch screen giving users another way to experience the BlackBerry 7 OS. One thing I did notice was that the Curve touch looked almost identical to the Curve 9360 on the back, but once you flip it over it’s a whole new experience. Hit up the link below to check out a few close up photos of the new all touch Curve.

NFC BBCard NFC enabled BlackBerry smartphones will ‘open doors’ with HID global’s iCLASS® digital keys and readers says RIM

It’s a known fact that two of the new BlackBerry 7 Smartphones are packing the new NFC chips that will enable things like mobile payments, contact transfer, and accessory pairing, none of which exists today in North America. Today, RIM and HID have announced a partnership that will help businesses utilize the new technology, empowering companies with new all-in-one solution for business security.

Previously, businesses would have installed card readers on doors then hand out access cards to their employees, but fast forward to today and there is a new solution. With RIM and HID teaming up they have now enabled the NFC equipped BlackBerry Smartphones to work as card readers giving employees access to card locked doors and windows with the swipe of a BlackBerry.

“NFC technology will enable many new and exciting capabilities for BlackBerry smartphones and we are very pleased to be working with HID Global to be the first to bring a host of secure identity and mobile access control capabilities to NFC-enabled smartphones,” said Andrew Bocking, vice president, Handheld Software Product Management at RIM.

It looks as though RIM has a lot of things planed for the new tech and they aren’t sitting there like ducks waiting for other companies to offer solutions. They are once again on the leading edge of innovation. The full press release can be found after the break.

RIM to announce Q2 Fiscal 2012 results on Sept. 15th at 5pm est

RIM RIM to announce Q2 Fiscal 2012 results on Sept. 15th at 5pm est

If you’ve been following RIM close enough then I’m sure you have witnessed their stock drop to a low of $21 and then bounce up to its current rate at the time of this post which is $31.27. The majority of the decrease in stock price occurred after their Q1 earnings call earlier this year, and RIM is about to announce their Q2 results later this month.

On September 15 th 2011 at 5pm Eastern Time, Research In Motion will announce their earnings for their second quarter of fiscal 2012. I’ll be the first to say that I really have no idea how the numbers will be. Yes, we’ve seen an increase of PlayBook sales and retailers are selling out of the new BlackBerry 7 line up, but sadly BlackBerry 7 devices won’t be included in this earnings call. I’m curious to hear what the BlackBerry community has to say. We’re a strong community, let your voice be heard!

curve 9360 image 1 Another hands on with the BlackBerry Curve 9360

The team over at BGR just spent some hands-on time with the upcoming Curve 9360 and have put some photos out for us all to enjoy. The 9360 is currently codenamed the Apollo and is said to feature some hardware specs that beat out even the most high-end BlackBerry currently on the market. The source post is quoted as saying that the unit seems “production quality” and that it shouldn’t be long before the 9360 is hitting store shelves. We’re betting on late July or early August till we see even the first 2011 BlackBerry device hit shelves, but only time will tell. Check out the rest of the photos past the break.
