Of course, it has the usual BlackBerry Curve form factor with a 2.4-inch screen, a full QWERTY keyboard, and an optical touch pad for navigation. Other features include a 5-megapixel camera with a flash, Wi-Fi, and a number of preloaded apps like Documents To Go and the latest version of BBM.

The Curve 9360 will be available for presale to T-Mobile's business customers starting today. It will be available in retail stores and select dealers starting September 28 for the black version and October 12 for the merlot finish. It will cost $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a two-year service agreement.
