BlackBerry Curve 9380: Death by touch screen [Review]
15 May 2012

The 9380 is BlackBerry's first full touchscreen Curve model, and it is very pretty. At 109 mm tall and 60 mm wide, it is the same BlackBerry size that fits perfectly in your hand, but is just a bit skinnier than most at just over a centimeter thick. It's light too at 98 grams, it would have flown gracefully through the air if I'd chucked it at the wall. Read more here: Gearburn review

By Gearburn

BlackBerry OS 7 "customisable menu panels and the social feed made me happy, universal voice search, maps" navigation was easy, fast and pretty accurate.

The 9380's capacitive touch screen isn't the greatest, I think it's because the letters on the keyboard are too close together, even in landscape mode. The screen is just too small for the entire alphabet.
