RIM BlackBerry Curve 8330 Review

Phone Arena
26 June 2005
  • Conclusion: The Curve 8330 is a good device, and for RIM diehards and business professionals it is the best BlackBerry to date. However, there are still significant shortcomings, mostly related to the UI, that . We feel RIM devices appeal to a limited audience, though to that audience they are invaluable. The Curve, however, sets out to defeat the consumer market and unfortunately falls short. The keyboard is excellent but the trackball frustrating.
  • Pros: Best email platform available, Keyboard is the best QWERTY we’ve used, Excellent battery life
  • Cons: UI just isn’t ready for prime-time, Trackball can be as frustrating as it is helpful, microSD slot very inconvenient
