RIM BlackBerry 8300 Curve

PC Magazine
22 May 2008
  • 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.

BlackBerry Curve 8300

MobileTechReview.com
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.
  • 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.

BlackBerry Curve 8300

1 October 2007
  • Summary: Business with pleasure The BlackBerry (BB) Curve 8300 is the littler sibling of the BB 8800, which we tested in August 2007. Most phones from RIM are business-centric, but the Curve incorporates multimedia features. Silver tones make for a cool, refined look.

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.
  • 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

LetsGoMobile
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.

BlackBerry Curve review -

Mobile Choice UK
12 December 2011
  • Pros: The Curve still retains what makes BlackBerry so successful: ease of use, email on the move and a great QWERTY keyboard.
  • Cons: BlackBerry continues to give 3G and Wi-Fi a wide berth and, while the multimedia presence is welcome, it's not the most realised.

BlackBerry 8300 Curve

IT PRO
10 July 2007
  • Summary: The first BlackBerry to combine a full keyboard and camera, the 8300 Curve doesn't have the visceral desirability of the Pearl - or the slab-like bulk of the 8800 - but it does have QWERTY and trackball, spell checking and competent multimedia in a small and neat package.
