BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300: 8520 with Some Extra Toppings
29 July 2011
Excerpt: The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is an upgrade to the popular BlackBerry Curve 8520 . In a line, what's new is a few minor aesthetic touches, a faster processor, double the RAM which makes the device OS 6 capable, support for Wi-Fi 802.11n and of course the big extras–GPS and 3G.
Conclusion: We liked the Curve 8520 when we saw it, but we are now a year ahead and essentially you get GPS and 3G in the same bundle, which compared to rival handsets isn't anything to get excited about: it is simply par for the course.
Pros: Email service, looks good, connectivity, comfortable for calling
Cons: Low spec screen, camera and video, doesn't sit comfortably in the hand, keyboard edge tapering can cause one-handed typing issues
