RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 review

 

No 3G, but a beautifully compact BlackBerry

Stylish and compact ; 3.2 megapixel camera ; Wi-Fi ; 3.5mm headphone jack ; GPS

No 3G ; Keyboard feels just a little cramped

If you can live without 3G, this mini-Bold is a great little Blackberry

BlackBerry Curve 8900 - Pocket-lint

 

A great refresh both in terms of looks and the operating system. There are some minor niggles, but the lack of 3G might be a deal breaker for some

New friendlier OS, faster, refreshed consumer friendly design, GPS and Wi-Fi, excellent for email

Keyboard movement, no HSDPA

But the phone isn’t perfect. It isn’t a mini clone of the Bold, it’s a different device, which might irk those who want or need faster data rates. Whilst the build quality is good all over, a few things niggle: some play in the keyboard, a common...

RIM has given its traditional email workhorse a makeover. But is it really worth upgrading to?

A great BlackBerry for work and play, and ideal if you don't fancy the specced up Bold or the Storm

BlackBerry Curve 3G smartphone review

 

RIM adds high-speed internet to the Curve range

3G/GPS; strong battery life; BlackBerry 6 ready

Awkward Qwerty keypad; low-resolution screen; bland design; average camera; pricey

RIM has added 3G to the Curve range, but the other specifications are mediocre and let the device down. This handset may be a good choice for users who have yet to make the jump to a smartphone, but it offers business users nothing new. Those wanting...
