The RIM BlackBerry Curve 8350i has the same shape and design of other Curve models, but it's slightly bigger given all the features packed into the device. The smartphone measures 4.4 inches high by 2.4 inches wide by 0.7 inch thick and weighs 4.7 ounces.

Below the display, you'll find a traditional navigation array and a full QWERTY keyboard. People transitioning from the BlackBerry 7100i might need some time to acclimate to the trackball navigator, which replaces the side jog wheel. However, we think the full QWERTY keyboard is a welcome addition.

The BlackBerry Curve 8350i has a 2-megapixel camera with digital-zoom and video-recording capabilities. Picture quality wasn't particularly impressive. Though objects looked clear, the colors were a little dull and gray.
