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. The device is really more about the revamped look rather than new features (though there are a few enhancements), but it's still a good choice for consumers and mobile professionals alike.

Simply put, it was love at first sight. Though we don't fully understand the name--it's no curvier than the BlackBerry Pearl or any of the other latest BlackBerrys--the RIM BlackBerry Curve offers a best-of-breed design that beautifully combines a full QWERTY keyboard into a sleek and compact design.

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 them a rubbery texture, thus making it easier to grip. Read editors' take

On the left spine of the Curve, you will find a mini-USB port as well as another programmable convenience key, and--good news--the BlackBerry 8300 is equipped with a 3.5mm headset jack, so you can plug in Walkman-style headphones. Read editors' take

With its compact dimensions, you'll have no problem slipping the BlackBerry 8300 into your bag or purse. It still might make for a bit of a tight fit in a pants pocket, but it's much improved over past models. Read editors' take

Fortunately, the Curve's QWERTY keyboard is much improved over that of the BlackBerry 8800. It reverts back to the styling of past models, with more spacing between the keys for easy typing. As with the latest BlackBerrys, the 8300 also features the trackball navigator. Read editors' take

The BlackBerry Curve gets a camera upgrade with a 2-megapixel sensor and a 5x zoom lens. Yet, despite this improvement, we were a bit disappointed by the picture quality. The 8300 produced clear pictures, but the colors had a gray overtone. Read editors' take
