Ooo, we'd hate to be a RIM BlackBerry 8800 owner right now. Just months after the 8800's release, Research In Motion and Cingular/AT&T have released a sleeker, sexier model that will make you wish that you had waited a while longer. How the world of technology can be so cruel. The RIM BlackBerry Curve (aka BlackBerry 8300) is the smallest and lightest, full-QWERTY BlackBerry to date, and we're absolutely stoked on the design. We want to be clear that the BlackBerry 8300 is more about the revamped design rather than new features (read: still no Wi-Fi or 3G support), but what can we say? We're a sucker for a pretty face. Unfortunately, Cingular didn't announce an exact availability date or pricing today, but we'll keep you updated as we get the information. In the meantime, check out our full review and First Look video of the BlackBerry Curve for all the glorious details.
