I think this phone is a very smart move, since it points emergent markets like india or indonesia which don't have 3g infrastructure
Days are numbered for BB..Its heading towards disaster.
It's shame to launch such phones in todays arena..what they are trying to prove??
iphone / Andriod rules.......
No 3g, yet no poblem in india. Because 3g service is not stable, smooth and affordable yet in India. You should use wifi instead. But what irritate me most is BBM itself. You have to pay a huge amount of money just for such services. In android platform, and even in symbian, you don't have to pay extra money for the similar service. So it is really foolish to boast of using BBM. Regular internet charge is applicable on other OS to get the similar service. With BBM you will be in touch with only those who also possess a such foolish mobile phone. Of course having keypad on a mobile device is out of date. That's why it's a phone for 'Rich Fools'.
No 3G? 65K colour screen? Are you kidding me? This is not a smartphone, but a dumbphone. How pathetic. The only difference between this and 8520 is the OS. And this dumbphone is not worthy of the $200 price RIM is asking for it, it should be more like $100-. Blackberry is definitely dying.
third class type set.only 2.4 screen.no 3g,no divx,only 114 ppi,2mp,no secondary,no touch screen,small and pathetic button,no android,what good?but price $210.so pathetic.r u kidding bb?huawei is best.huawei new handset ascend g300 is 1000% better than this handset and price only $150.so keep waiting and keep aloof from bb the canadian loss company.
Importatnt features which are missing.
with these are added and sold with same price then it can attract attention.
The button layout makes it look like an old aged phone. No actual trendy styling looks. Curve 8520 was better looking.
The phone has 800 mhz processor thats whats required to run os7.1 guys who are saying phone is same as 8520 dont know shit this phone is way faster slim n better battery life. and ppl complaining of 3g how many of you having a 3g phone really use 3g BIS data plan in india
i don't think this phone can boom the market becoz it is without 3G & GPS
It is better to have 3G connection features instead of 2G.
No a days, People are looking for 3G Video Calling facility and Net browsing.
I hope Black Berry will come with these features with moderate cost.
not having 3g is a big let down, a thinner 8520 and new OS for another 2k extra needs extra bit of thinking before one opens his wallet.....:-)
i think this is the first ever blackberry curve phone to feature FM Radio.
Need 5MP, at least 2GB internal memory & 3G with same price tag.
