Conclusion: The BlackBerry Curve 8320 from T-Mobile further extends the appeal for HotSpot @Home by adding a compelling all-in-on device to our lineup with Wi-Fi and unlimited calling capabilities.” Grandy added, “The BlackBerry Curve 8320 is an ideal companion for staying connected to friends, family and life while at home, at work or on the go.
Conclusion: The BlackBerry Curve 8320 is an exciting device. We've seen a lot of "me too" devices that are copies of last year's successful model or are simply clones of the same phone offered on another carrier. But the Curve's UMA and T-Mobile's excellent Hotspot@Home service sets the 8320 apart from the 8300 and most other phones on the market.
Summary: The result is a BlackBerry that’s got ergonomics and entertainment value in addition to everything that’s good and bad about always-on Email. T-Mobile’s Curve doesn’t have the 3G data access and integrated GPS that AT&T’s version does, but the 8320 offers WiFi connectivity and the value-add of UMA calling for folks who are worried about overage charges on their monthly bill.
Pros: Excellent QWERTY keypad; WiFi for Email/Web and UMA voice calling; Legendary push Email system; Trackball navigation; Media player with 3.5mm headphone jack.
Summary: While voice quality over Wi-Fi was only passable, the capability itself is still impressive. And combined with the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8320's sleek design and awesome email handling, it makes for a winning mobile phone package.
Review: RIM's Curve 8320 with T-Mobile @Home Support
22 October 2007
Excerpt: The RIM BlackBerry Curve 8300 is one of our favorite devices of 2007. As such, the thought of a Curve with WiFi and UMA support for T-Mobile USA's @Home service should get a lot of people drooling. We put the new Curve 8320 and @Home through it's paces in this review.
Excerpt: The Blackberry 8320 Curve is the latest iteration of the once AT&T exclusive 8300, but with at least one major improvement. The 8320 uses a wonderful new technology called UMA or Unlicensed Mobile Access, which allows the user to make WiFi calls seamlessly and without the need for a separate VoIP account.
