RIM launches the BlackBerry Curve 9360 in India for a smidge under 20K

After announcing their new Curve range back in August, Research In Motion (RIM) today officially launched the new Curve 9360 in India at a price tag of Rs.19,990. The handset will sport the same ergonomic keypad and optical trackpad combo we’ve come to love from the Curve series. RIM has also tied up with Airtel to offer postpaid customers special offers. For instance, the Rs. 299 BlackBerry plan will be offered for a trial period of 2 months, free of cost for new Curve 9360 owners. They can also avail of special call rates where all local calls are at 20p and local SMS is 50p to any one BB customer for a full year.
