RIM BlackBerry Curve Review at brighthand!

“The Curve uses the newer generation BlackBerry form factor: it’s still a relatively thin yet broad device with a large screen, but (as with the Pearl and the 8800) the Curve now uses a center-mounted trackball for menu navigation and selection rather than the traditional three-way jog dial common to earlier BlackBerry phones.Like all BlackBerries it’s considerably larger than the average phone. However, with the addition of multimedia capabilities such as a 2-megapixel digital camera and the ability to play QVGA-quality video and music, the Curve is remarkably compact. The Curve’s size also makes for a very usable keyboard, though not quite as large as the slide-out keyboards on some smartphones.On the left side of the 8300 is the headset jack and a mini-USB port which handles both sync and charge duties. The Push To Talk key is just below that.”Read more here:
