1:47 /

Despite its entry-level status, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 is a decent smartphone for the price.

-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for CNET.com, and this is a first look at RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 for Verizon Wireless. The phone is very similar to the T-mobile version of the same phone. The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9for Verizon Wireless has the usual BlackBerry features of course. It also has a very nice QWERTY keyboard underneath here. It has the usual optical trackpad in the middle, which we just found very easy to use and very intuitive. You also get the usual send and end/power keys as well as the main menu key and the clear key. On the side key, you do get the charging pod as well as the voice dialing key. On the top, you do get very useful external media keys. On the side key, you do get the volume rocker as well as the camera key. On the back is the 2.0 megapixel camera lens. The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 comes with BlackBerry OS 5, but it is upgradable to BlackBerry OS 6 when that becomes available. The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 has the usual BlackBerry features like access to BlackBerry's Enterprise Server, BlackBerry App World, which is BlackBerry's app store. You also get Bing service on here as well as Verizon services like V Cast video and V Cast music. As the name suggest, it has 3G support. It supports Verizon's EV-DO Rev-0 network. It also has GPS with VZ navigator support. It also has access to Verizon services like V Cast video and V Cast music. One of the biggest highlights of the Curve 3G 9330 is that it's only $30 with a new 2-year service agreement with Verizon Wireless. I am Nicole Lee and this has been the first look at the RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 for Verizon Wireless.
