Integrated location hardware in the Blackberry Curve 9360 offers you the ability to know where you are all the time and get local points of interest and directions. It is also now useful for sharing your location with others through social networks and other Web services. As with most smartphones now available, this handset delivers both an internal GPS and Assisted GPS antenna to your pocket and works along with software such as the included (preinstalled) Blackberry Maps application, along with other maps applications available to bring you location based services. Maps applications allow you to instantly see where you are, and quickly get to see local shops, restaurants or other points of interest, as well as offering you fast directions to get to any of them, or another destination entirely. If you are constantly on the move, and out and about in new and different places, these features can prove invaluable, and they are all within your mobile phone. Simply use the optical trackpad and full 35 key keyboard on this handset and view where you are, or get directions to view on the 2.44 inch display. The lGPS and A-GPS hardware will do the work while speed is maintained by both the 800 megahertz processor and the 512 megabytes of random access memory offered by the Curve 9360 respectively. Along with these obvious mentioned services, location services also now include search engines such as Google automatically finding where you are searching from so that it can better provide you with search results wherever you go. You can also use new social networking features such as Facebook Places to check in and let friends on the network know where you are, thereby sharing your location with them instantly. Some companies, such as coffee chains have seen this as an invaluable way to get your custom, and offer discounts for check ins. It doesn’t end there either, as location based functionality can also include your multimedia, through Geotagging. This impressive capability, and feature of this handset’s 5 megapixel camera, as with others such as contracts for Blackberry Bold 9790, enables your phone to store or tag the place where a photo or video was captured alongside the media. This then makes it easier for you to sort it into albums or the way you view it on the handset itself. Location services are a great way of being able to communicate and always know where you are, and how to get to the next place. They are just one of many sets of features offered by the sleek design and lightweight offered by the Blackberry Curve 9360.
