RIM BlackBerry 8300 Curve

PC Magazine
18 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The best BlackBerry so far, the Curve is easy to use, plays music and video well, and is a terrific e-mail device.
  • Pros: Easy to use. Great screen and keyboard. High quality music and video players and converters.
  • Cons: No Wi-Fi or 3G. No support for DRM media. BlackBerry platform still doesn't have as many third party apps as other OS's.

Expert Review

Gear Patrol
16 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Yesterday marked the release of the much anticipated Blackberry Curve (8300). RIM’s long awaited release of a true multi-media Blackberry device that could continue to handle everyone’s daily bombardment of corporate exchange e-mail in addition to multimedia functions everyone non-berrier had. Well, suffice it to say the Curve does not disappoint.

BlackBerry Curve 8300

10 March 2008
  • Conclusion: We like recent BlackBerry smartphones, and the Curve is no exception. It does all the things you'd expect from a BlackBerry but it's smaller, cooler looking and boasts decent, though not earth-shattering multimedia capabilities. The Curve is responsive, easy to use, easy to type on and it has good quality. Though not as pretty as the BlackBerry 8800, the Curve feels better in the hand and is easier on the pocket, price-wise.
  • Pros: Stable, fast and easy to use. Great curvy ergonomics. Good call quality, very good music playback quality and A2DP support (something the more multimedia-oriented iPhone lacks). Battery life, as is generally true of RIM devices, is quite good.
  • Cons: Not a con, per se, but an important consideration if you're thinking of the Curve vs. the 8800 line: the Curve lacks a GPS. Still no 3G on a BlackBerry. You have to turn off the phone to insert or remove a memory card.

  • Excerpt: I was promising myself I would get around to writing this review and frankly, I should have had it done BEFORE I did the iPhone review, since I still have this phone and the iPhone was returned to the store. Despite the fact that traditionally the BlackBerry platform is thought of as a business phone with email, I think that these two phones should be directly compared.

BlackBerry Curve 8300 Review

1 October 2007
  • Summary: Priced at Rs 24,990, the BB Curve 8300 is a good buy for those who demand executive features (PDA functionality) and a bit of multimedia; however, lack of Wi-Fi should be noted.

Reliability, Versatility, Functionality: Blackberry Curve 8300

Personal Electronics buzz
22 August 2007
  • Excerpt: The absolute bottom line for me is reliability and utility in calling and receiving communications. I work outside the office most of the time. I have to keep in touch with Corporate at all times. I need to sync my e-mail with the company's e-mail. There are some very nifty smartphones out there, but in my opinion, the Blackberry Curve 8300 meets and exceeds the demands of my work.

RIM BlackBerry Curve Review

Phone Arena
22 August 2007
  • Conclusion: We were very pleased with the Curve as RIM managed to put together a great package together into one phone. While the camera isn’t perfect, RIM did its research to make sure it would not come out useless and the great flash is better than most phones out there. The email client is great, as expected, and the battery life is great. The QWERTY keyboard, while small, is very comfortable to use, much better than that of the one on the 8830.
  • Pros: Comfortable, full QWERTY keyboard, 2MP camera with a great flash, 3.5mm audio jack, Great screen, Battery life
  • Cons: Emails were doubled, Cheap looking UI from AT&T, Sound quality through the speaker when listening to music, No video recording, Location of the microSD slot

Blackberry Curve

4 April 2014
  • Excerpt: T he size of mobile phones has drastically changed over the past few years. The first generation of the mobile phone was huge, its external antenna and heavy weight made it unappealing to carry the phone with you at all times. Not long later, many new features were added and the phone’s dimensions became much smaller. Success depended strongly on the phone's size; the smaller the better.
