BlackBerry Curve 8900

6 February 2009
  • Conclusion: It's hard not to pick this 'Berry; it's one of RIM's best smartphones yet in a compact package. Gone is the burden of choice-- WiFi or GPS, and the camera is excellent, UMA calling works well and the phone feels great in the hand. It's fairly stable for a new model and in general, BlackBerry OS is one of the most stable on the market.
  • Pros: Fast, attractive, very good ergonomics. Improved speed and web browsing compared to older BlackBerry OS versions (i.e.; the first gen Curve and Pearl ), high resolution display that's sharp and vivid, very good camera, strong video and music playback, good GPS performance. Has 3.5mm headphone jack and A2DP. UMA is a big plus and works well.
  • Cons: Display resolution is very high for the size and text is hard to read-- the display is the same resolution as the Storm's, which measures 1.1" larger! No 3G. Reception is middling.

BlackBerry Curve 8900 (T-Mobile)

LAPTOP Magazine
28 January 2009
  • Summary: At $199, the Curve 8900 is a gorgeous and powerful device that’s packed to the brim with excellent features and hardware. It has a beautiful display, a solid camera, a beefy 512-MHz processor, and it’s excellent for e-mail, messaging, and playing multimedia. If this smart phone didn’t ride on T-Mobile’s last-generation EDGE network as opposed to its new 3G one, it would easily be an Editors’ Choice pick.
  • Pros: Sleek industrial design, Good call quality, Fast processor, Solid 3.2-MP camera, Very good attachment support,
  • Cons: No 3G data support, Slow autofocus,
