First Look: RIM BlackBerry Curve

1:10 /

The RIM BlackBerry Curve (aka BlackBerry 8320) for T-Mobile is the best BlackBerry we've seen to date. It offers Wi-Fi, a best-of-breed design, and excellent performance.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi this is Bonnie Cha Senior Editor at CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the Rim Blackberry Curve for T-Mobile. This is like the original Curve except for one big exception; it has integrated WiFi so that's great news for everyone. It also works with T-Mobile's hot spot at home service so that means you can make phone calls using your WiFi network and not be charged for it so we like that. Design is pretty much the same; it does come in gold or titanium, very sexy. I really love the design of this device with the QUERTY keyboard; it's a little bit slippery but I find that pretty easy to use and it's nice and slim. On the back you have a 2-megapixel camera, it takes pretty decent pictures but you have to have a steady hand to get a good shot. It's got a Bluetooth as well as e-mail and all the good stuff in here. It has great call quality so I was really impressed. Overall, I'm really loving this device. If you really just need that messaging device, I would choose this probably over the T-Mobile Dash which I also love but I'm just a fan. So it's available now for about 249 with a two-year contract and this is your first look at the T-Mobile Blackberry Curve. ^M00:01:08 [ Music ] ^M00:01:10
