The Early Series:
The early series of BlackBerry Curve smartphones consisted of the:
Curve 8300 Series
Curve 8500 Series

BlackBerry Curve first came into the market in 2007 with the Curve 8300 series which offered several models, namely 8300, 8310, 8320, 8330 and 8350i.
This was followed by the Blackberry 8900 that hit the market in 2009. It had the OS version 5.0 and was an upgrade from the 8300 model. The 8900 also came with a micro-USB port, 3.2-megapixel camera, and Wi-Fi.
Next, came the Curve 8500 Series and these smartphones had additional multimedia features along with a new trackpad.
The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 completed the early series and was the first Curve phone to function on 3G.
BlackBerry 7 series:

BlackBerry Curve 9350/9360/9370
These are the mid-range models which released in September 2011 and had the OS version 7.1. With a 5-megapixel camera accompanied by an LED flash, these were pretty advanced.
