BlackBerry Curve 8900 review: Curved right

Bottom line: the BlackBerry Curve 8900 is less controversial than the TouchBerry Storm. It comes to update the Curve line and it does its job quite well. We guess only the missing 3G won't let us call the 8900 Curve the perfect upgrade. Anyway, on home Blackberry turf the Curve 8900 certainly holds a high position.

In our case, the Curve 8900 is not a bad phone, but once the BlackBerry Internet Service account is out of the equation, it is much worse a deal than what the competitors can offer. read more →

  • 2.4" 65K-color TFT landscape display with a resolution of 480 x 360 pixels
  • Comfortable four-row full QWERTY keyboard
  • Quad-band GSM support
  • Wi-Fi
  • BlackBerry OS v4.6
  • No 3G
  • No email support without BlackBerry Internet Service account
  • Mediocre camera
  • No FM radio

    No 3G, but a beautifully compact BlackBerry

    The classic QWERTY keyboard-packing BlackBerry has been getting a subtle but important makeover recently, slowly moving out of the boardroom ghetto to become all things for everyone.

    The Bold and Storm marked the new line in the sand with their stylish form factors and eye-catching on-screen graphics, and so it is with the new BlackBerry Curve 8900. read more →

    • Stylish and compact
    • 3.2 megapixel camera
    • Wi-Fi
    • 3.5mm headphone jack
    • GPS
    • No 3G
    • Keyboard feels just a little cramped

    RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 Review

    The 8900 is a worthy successor to the wildly successful 8300. It combines all of the features we loved the first time around with a better form factor and increased specs. The display is the on par with the Storm as the best we’ve ever seen from RIM, and though the keyboard is a bit small the overall feel is also RIM’s best effort. The 4.6 OS is shiny and polished, though with Palm’s recent Pre announcement we feel RIM is about due for a drastic change that goes beyond cosmetics. read more →

    • Near perfect feel
    • Best in class high-resolution display
    • Quick, polished, bug-free OS
    • Greatly improved camera performance over the Storm
    • Solid phone performance, including amazing battery life
    • Keyboard may be a bit too small for larger fingers
    • The OS may be bug-free, but it’s far from perfect
