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.

Excerpt: First came the trim, consumer-friendly BlackBerry Curve 8300 . Then came the Wi-Fi-enabled BlackBerry 8820 .
