Created by Marta Vime from Valencia, Spain, the BlackBerry CurveX concept feels like a throwback to the days of the Palm Pre 3, or some other Palm phone. It feels like a more compact phone, maybe one for the feminine public.

Its lack of main camera flash points towards a lower end offering, which is actually what BlackBerry promised to deliver this year, at some point. Created in Photoshop, the device comes with a metal frame, that seems to be borrowed a bit from the iPhone. The upper front side also feels a bit Apple-like, although in a more old school fashion.

The BlackBerry, Back and Home button are nicely integrated below the display, that looks very crisp for what seems to be a 4 or 4.5 inch affair. Notice how the bezels of the screen are rather narrow, in keeping with the current design trends. This model has a 12 megapixel camera in case you’re wondering, but we don’t have other specs. The thing I don’t like here are the very small and stuck together volume buttons.
