another good looking device from RIM...however, the camera is not the best you can get on the market, and the question remains: why the camera, as this device is supposed to target the corporate market? I'm using a 8700r and honestly, i'm not really impressed with anything RIM came out with after this model.
im getting the curve. love the better screen resolution and tweaked the media player. its a winner. go curve. pearl is still nice but im still going curve
Using a Pearl now. Have an 8300 in to test. Not overly impressed. Keyboard is much nicer, but not as bright a screen, less on-board memory than the Pearl and a cheaper plastic look to the Curve are all negatives. Pearl's camera in my opinion was also better and viewfinder was bright enough to see on the Pearl. In short, as much as I was wanting the Curve, I'm keeping the Pearl. Just a more solid phone.
as much as i was looking forward to this phone i may still keep my pearl. been playing with it all day and the media feature is ok at best. still cant full screen videos to well, and i kinda miss sure type. screen is a lot better and the OS is a bit better too. but if i cant get the media player working well, to hell with it ill keep my pearl.
Lol to Ivan - the Curve doesnt have video recording capability!!!! Should of done your homework 1st!!
Plzzzzzzzz... can anybody tell me that if this hand set have any enhanced feature of attachment viewing or the same as in 8800
I bought my 8300 this morning on Cingular's website for $199 with free shipping and I should get it tuesday. I'm concerned I will miss the trackwheel, but I welcome the Camera. many bra-less hot women in the NYC subways in the summer time, I need to make some videos bad!!!!
Saw one yesterday at AT&T... only a little wider than the Pearl, but so much better with a bigger screen and a very well designed keyboard. I think the best thing about the phone is the standard 3.5mm headphone jack on the top corner of it and the inclusion of stereo earbuds in the box. Thank God somebody is starting to think...
The deal-breaker for me was the fact that there's no GPS on this thing. I'm addicted to my Telenav, and having to purchase an external GPS receiver to use it with the Curve is a no-go.
saw my blackberry rep (i work for att) held the curve today and feels awsome in the hand. keyboard is a lot better then the 8800. i cant wait to get 1. bb for ever
to george, windows mobile is a fairly unstable OS. while it can handle 3rd party apps, it crashes far more frequently then blakcberries. also blackberrys run the push email system far better then good link and windows mobile touch screens are faulty. i have seen then stop working for no reason several times. blackberry all the way
All I really care about is the tereo blutooth. This is a huge advantage to this phone if you ask me. I have been carrying around an iPod and my phone. This is going to be more convienent!!
Been trying this out this week and I'M NOT REALLY CONVINCED, it is an improvement on the pearl, but saying that I still wouldn't acctually pay for this thing, should be free to all tariffs over 20 quid if you ask me, save your money and just get another hand set for nowt, it's nothing special
I'm going to the launch event June 14. Can't wait. It looks like the replacement of my pearl
its a great phone, the o2 store 134 oxford street have loads of the in stock
Wait for the 9000 series at the end of this year,it will have everything on it.
i heard that there was gonna be a version of this blackberry called a 8320 that has wifi...thatll be good.
