From the outside, the RIM BlackBerry 8320 for T-Mobile looks much like the original BlackBerry Curve, except for one big difference: it has integrated Wi-Fi! This gives you an alternative to surfing the Web and making calls on T-Mobile's cellular network.
The RIM BlackBerry Curve (aka BlackBerry 8320) for T-Mobile is the best BlackBerry we've seen to date, as it offers Wi-Fi, best-of-breed design, and excellent performance. It's available now for $249.99 with a two-year contract.
We love the design of the RIM BlackBerry Curve. It offers a best-of-breed design that beautifully combines a full QWERTY keyboard into a sleek and compact form factor (4.2 inches high by 2.4 inches wide by 0.6 inch deep; 3.9 ounces).
The BlackBerry Curve is comfortable to hold and use as a phone, even though it has a wider body than regular cell phones. The outer edges also have a soft-touch finish to give it a rubbery texture, thus making it easier to grip.
On back of the device, you'll find the 2-megapixel camera lens, flash, and self-portrait mirror. The Curve took decent photos, but we found that you really need a steady hand to get a clear shot. Also, we're disappointed that there are no video recording capabilities.
The addition of Wi-Fi is a huge boost for the BlackBerry Curve, giving T-Mobile customers another way to surf the Web from their phone. Plus, it works with T-Mobile's HotSpot@Home service so you can make calls over a Wi-Fi network.
