1:27 /

Though we're disappointed that the RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G didn't have more improvements over its predecessor, it's still a decent upgrade with the addition of 3G and GPS. Plus, it's quite affordable for an entry-level smartphone.

-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for cnet.com and this is a first look at the RIM Blackberry Curve 3G for T-Mobile. The design is pretty much the same as the previous Blackberry Curve. This is only the 3G version of the same phone. On the front, shows a nice 2.4-inch color display. Underneath that, you do get the Send key, the Menu key, as well as the optical trackpad, the Back key, as well as the End/Power key. The optical trackpad is slightly raised than its predecessor. It's also very responsive. The Blackberry Curve 3G has Blackberry OS 5. However, RIM has said that is upgradable to OS 6. The user interface is fairly intuitive like previous Blackberry phones and you can use this with Blackberry Enterprise server as well as other corporate e-mail services like Outlook. They have the usual messaging options here of course, the instant messaging and text and multimedia messaging. The Blackberry Curve 3G also has excessive Blackberry App World that lets you download your own apps. Other features of the phone include Wi-Fi support for T-Mobile's 3G network, GPS, Bluetooth, and a 2-megapixel camera on the back. The Blackberry Curve 3G is built as an entry-level smartphone as is available for $79.99 with a new 2-year service agreement with T-Mobile. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the first look at the RIM Blackberry Curve 3G for T-Mobile.
