RIM BlackBerry 8300 Curve

 

The slickest BlackBerry so far combines effortless e-mail with powerful multimedia.

Easy to use. Great screen and keyboard. High quality music and video players and converters.

No Wi-Fi or 3G. No support for DRM media. BlackBerry platform still doesn't have as many third party apps as other OS's.

let's start with that keyboard. these are old-school keys here—squarish, separated, and clicky, not the new sculpted keys from the 8800. the spacing and tactile feedback are both excellent. above the keyboard sits the now-signature "pearl" trackball...

RIM Blackberry 8300 Curve Smart Phone

 

The BlackBerry Curve 8300 is the latest chic smart phone to sashay down the cell phone runway. Petite and gently rounded at the corners (as its name suggests), the Curve does for Research In Motion's line of QWERTY-keyboard-equipped handhelds what the...

Most compact, chic QWERTY BlackBerry yet Improved media player

Productivity apps still thin No high-speed or Wi-Fi support

Overall, however, I found the Curve a seductive alternative to other candy-bar phones with wide-aspect-ratio screens, such as the Samsung Blackjack and the T-Mobile Dash. If AT&T's price is right, the Curve could well become the hot PDA/phone of the...

BlackBerry 8300 Curve

 

I love the BlackBerry Curve. I love it so much, I don't want to give it back. It's a perfect example of a smartphone that doesn't do everything—but everything it does, it does well.

Easy to use. Great screen and keyboard. High quality music and video players and converters

No Wi-Fi or 3G. No support for DRM media. BlackBerry platform still doesn't have as many third party apps as other OS's

The best BlackBerry so far, the Curve is easy to use, playsmusic and video well, and is a terrific e-mail device.

BlackBerry 8300

 

The BlackBerry Curve has a lot going for it: a 2-megapixel camera, world roaming capabilities, expandable memory, Bluetooth, a decent music player, and of course, easy access to multiple e-mail accounts. This version also sports a nifty spell checker,...

BlackBerry Curve 8300

 

The BlackBerry Curve takes both good and bad factors from the Pearl and 8800, making it an enticing phone -- but we're still waiting for the ultimate consumer BlackBerry

Eye catching design, Good camera, Excellent keyboard, Quad-band GSM, Bluetooth

No Wi-Fi, No HSDPA, Average battery life

BlackBerry Curve 8300

 

The BlackBerry Curve 8300 smartphone is the smallest and lightest BlackBerry smartphone equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard. The rounded design of the Curve makes it pleasant to handle and it is small enough to hold for voice calls or use with single...

BlackBerry Curve 8300 Review

 

Priced at Rs 24,990, the BB Curve 8300 is a good buy for those who demand executive features (PDA functionality) and a bit of multimedia; however, lack of Wi-Fi should be noted.

Just months after the release of the Blackberry 8800, Research In Motion (RIM) introduces the new Blackberry 8300 Curve, but strangely without Wi-Fi and 3G. Find out what we think of it.

Great size, feel and build quality, Nice set of features, Great email capabilities, A good Media device

AT&T network is iffy and slow, Call quality was good but not great

I love my Pearl. That being said, I think this is BlackBerry's best device to date. The Curve is so nice to hold and use. It feels solid - there is no squeaking like the 8800 and the Pearl. The keys are very tactile and easy to use. BlackBerry Email...
