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.
Conclusion: The Blackberry Curve 8320 is light, smooth and very easy to use on all counts. It is very much in-between audiences: casual Smartphone users may find the $500 USD (without rebates) tag prohibitive, while grizzled Blackberry businesspeople may be looking at more sophisticated models. With rebates, however, the Curve is a great steal for both groups.
Pros: Good price with rebates; comfortable mouse and keyboard; good online speed
Cons: Too expensive for average consumers without rebates; not a revolutionary leap in Blackberry
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.
