Full review: Rim's affordable QWERTY gets 3G boost

Expert review by : Chris Hall (

BlackBerry Curve 3G


The BlackBerry Curve 3G (or 9300) is the newest handset from RIM, pitched at the entry-level, as confirmed by Mike Lazaridis, CEO: "The majority of people in the worldwide mobile phone market have yet to buy their first smartphone and the BlackBerry...

Email service, looks good, connectivity, comfortable for calling

Low spec screen, camera and video, doesn't sit comfortably in the hand, keyboard edge tapering can cause one-handed typing issues

We liked the Curve 8520 when we saw it, but we are now a year ahead and essentially you get GPS and 3G in the same bundle, which compared to rival handsets isn't anything to get excited about: it is simply par for the course. Assuming the prices are as...

BlackBerry Curve 3G review


RIM has kitted out its entry-level BlackBerry Curve smartphone with 3G connectivity. The BlackBerry Curve 3G smartphone looks identical to the BlackBerry Curve 8520, but adds 3G and GPS capabilities.

RIM has added 3G connectivity and GPS to its entry-level Blackberry Curve, but everything else remains almost identical to the earlier model. This is yet another BlackBerry release that lacks a wow factor, but the upcoming BlackBerry 6 OS update should...

RIM - BlackBerry Curve 3G


The BlackBerry Curve 3G is the latest smartphone from a very successful manufacturer. A central part of the BlackBerry Curve ‘look' is the upwardly curved miniature QWERTY keyboard so beloved of mobile email and SMS fans. ...

The BlackBerry Curve 3G adds 3G to the Curve line of smartphones, and brings GPS into the Curve mix too. But the camera is poor, the screen resolution low, and the keyboard build is not quite at the top notch standard we anticipate from RIM. Maybe RIM...

BlackBerry Curve 3G review


We review the BlackBerry Curve 3G, RIM's latest addition to the affordable Curve lineup

Very affordable for a full-featured BlackBerry ; Wi-Fi calling feature is awesome

Ships with the old clunky BlackBerry 5 OS ; No BlackBerry App World out of the box

The size and price of this entry-level BlackBerry phone make it worth checking out. Tack on 3G and Wi-Fi voice calling, and you've got yourself a winner among those looking to save money up front and over time with T-Mobile's competitive pricing.

BlackBerry Curve 3G


Even before they called them smart phones, Research in Motion's BlackBerry lorded it over in the personal digital assistant market. Now the Canadian company has come out with the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300.

A truly global handset, the Curve 9300 3G works on any GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 network. Appearance wise, it looks like the BlackBerry Curve 8520 except that the Curve 9300 comes with a selection of red or black as it casing colours. Measuring 109...

BlackBerry Curve 3G Review



Pros: You get up to ten push email accounts which are easy to set up and use.

As an entry in the world of BlackBerry, the Curve 8520 did the job nicely. The Curve 3G does the same good job but the upgrades aren’t really impressive enough to justify the new handset. Of course it’s email and messaging capabilities are unmatched,...

BlackBerry Curve 3G review


The BlackBerry Curve 3G isn't Research In Motion's highest specced, flagship smartphone. But if you're on a corporate BlackBerry network, there's a good chance it's what you're going to be given come upgrade time, and its inevitably mid range price...

Keyboard, GPS now included, BlackBerry 6 on the way

Screen is poor, boring build

The new kit should have been included last year - but it's still a first class messaging phone

RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G smartphone


The BlackBerry Curve 3G is an inexpensive introduction to the world of BlackBerry

Optical trackpad, upgradeable to BlackBerry 6 OS, best in class e-mail service, BlackBerry App World

Lacks wow factor, lock/multimedia keys hard to press, keyboard is smaller than other models, low screen resolution

RIM has added 3G connectivity and GPS to its entry-level Blackberry Curve, but everything else remains almost identical to the earlier model. This is yet another BlackBerry release that lacks a wow factor, but the upcoming BlackBerry 6 OS update should...
