I have not tried the GPS yet. I have a smartphone package from rogers that works quite well without the blackberry service. Some apps i can't use though because of a lack of blackberry internet service.
cloda, 31 Jan 2010All phones should have a radio, business people need to listen to the news! it should be stand... moreSome phones just don't have the ability to tune in normal radio. When you consider how long the 83xx series has been around, not much has changed really. RIM made one heck of a solid device with the 83xx series. Sure there's no 3G, nor is there a fast web browsing experience. There is one thing that it's great at. It does email and messaging far better than any other phone (aside from other 'berries) that I've ever used. Even gmail works faster on my 8310 than it does on my T-Mobile myTouch 3G.
That in mind, the 8310 or other 83xx BlackBerry devices are still quite usable despite being outdated and as the sales numbers prove, they are still popular as carriers are still selling them despite RIM making a new Curve. Another angle is also the used market. You can buy one for $100 and keep it on hand as a backup phone or even a primary one and not have to pay the new price.
Long live the Curve 8300 series!
