BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 (AT&T) review:

 

RIM might be struggling against the big Android and iOS competition with higher-end handhelds, but there still remains a strong BlackBerry contingent who wants that familiar keyboard feel that the Curve 3G 9300 offers. The recent RIM BlackBerry Curve...

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is slim and compact, with a responsive optical touch pad, convenient external media keys, Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, GPS, 3G, and a 2-megapixel camera.

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is not too different from its predecessors, and remains a fairly basic smartphone.

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is a decent entry-level BlackBerry with a couple of modern features like 3G and GPS, but we wish it was more affordable.

BlackBerry Curve 3G Review

 

For 30 bucks, the Curve 3G has some things going for it, including a very comfortable keyboard that you can type fast on, quick access to e-mail, and long battery life. None of these benefits are particularly exciting, especially compared to...

Good call quality, Speedy processor for a BlackBerry, Great QWERTY keyboard, Inexpensive

Quiet speakerphone, Outdated display, Web browser needs work, Runs older BlackBerry 5 OS

BlackBerry Curve 3G review: BlackBerry Curve 3G

 

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G has a slim profile, a responsive optical trackpad, and external media keys. It also has Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, GPS, 3G, and a 2-megapixel camera.

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G is almost identical to its predecessor save for a few changes. The photo quality is poor as well.

Though we're disappointed that the RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G didn't have more improvements over its predecessor, it's still a decent upgrade with the addition of 3G and GPS. Plus, it's quite affordable for an entry-level smartphone.

Affordable smartphone for the BlackBerry loyalist

 

Using a BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is like "visiting an old friend," InfoSyncWorld.com's Mike Perlman says. Other experts agree, noting that it's almost identical to its predecessor, the Curve 8530, save for some feature upgrades. Critics also agree that...

Small and slim, wi-Fi calling capability, long battery life

Identical to older model, poor image quality, small selection of third-party apps, slow browser

BlackBerry Curve 9300 Review

 

Find out all you need to know about RIM's latest BlackBerry Curve. The BlackBerry Curve 3G is an upgrade from the previously released 8520, it is similar in shape and size but now supports 3G as well. Read this article for more details.

The Curve 9300 is well worth its cost. When compared to many rivals and its predecessors it’s the best device. This BlackBerry phone handles email, instant messaging and social networking better than the others making it a youth’s number one choice but...

RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 and the LG Cosmos Touch

 

In this cell phone review, we will take a peak at RIM's BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 and the LG Cosmos Touch.

The Curve 3G 9300 is a BlackBerry that remains true to its brand's build. This will obviously appeal to previous BlackBerry owners looking to upgrade their handsets. The phone's solid features and design make it a viable selection for those needing a...

Review: RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 review

 

The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is the first 3G capable BlackBerry Curve model for GSM/UMTS carriers like T-Mobile USA and AT&T. While new, the device is nearly identical in looks to the Curve 8520 that launched on T-Mobile in August 2009. The Curve 3G...

Good battery life, excellent form factor, first-rate keyboard

Low resolution screen, poor web browser, mediocre camera, dated operating system, so-so call quality

Unfortunately, the display on the Curve 3G 9300 is still a let down. Like the Curve 8520 that came before it, the Curve 3G 9300 sports a QVGA (320 x 240 pixel) display. While more than bright and crisp enough for text, the display lets the phone down...

BlackBerry Curve 3G Review

 

The BlackBerry Curve 3G is an inexpensive consumer-oriented smartphone that uses the typical BlackBerry design and sports 3G wireless networking, Wi-Fi, and GPS. Shaun Mahal brings us this review.

Wi-Fi added, Updated styling, Light form factor

Sluggish at times, Sub-standard camera, Touted as a 3G device, but really doesn’t take advantage of 3G network in any way

Review: BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300

 

RIM develops a solid basic BlackBerry amid looming competition.

Good price on most carriers ; Textured, solid design ; Good physical keyboard ; Above-average call quality ; Better than usual battery life

BlackBerry OS 5 is old; BlackBerry 6 may be too slow ; App World still not as good as rival shops ; Poor camera ; Not necessarily a better value

Design, the keyboard and the displayCurve veterans will get a strong sense of deja vu when they first pick up the new Curve. It's a blend of traits from earlier Curves; the keyboard is much like the one we've seen as far back as the Curve 8900,
