RIM BlackBerry Curve 8350i (Nextel)

 

The BlackBerry Curve 8350i finally gives Nextel subscribers a proper smartphone option, even if it takes a few steps backward compared with its siblings.

Excellent voice quality. Comfortable QWERTY keyboard. Wi-Fi and 3G data radios. Great music and video playback.

Slow cellular data speeds (as is true of all Nextel phones). Nonstandard headphone jack. MicroSD card slot is buried underneath the battery. Unit is slightly larger and heavier than other Curve models.

BlackBerry Curve 8350i (Sprint) review

 

First introduced at CTIA Fall 2008 , the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8350i is finally available through Sprint . This is particularly good news for Nextel Direct Connect users, who haven't seen a new push-to-talk (PTT) BlackBerry model since the RIM...

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 8350i offers Direct Connect push-to-talk capabilities as well as integrated Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth. The Curve 8350i also brings an updated OS, a full HTML Web browser, and more advanced multimedia capabilities.

The BlackBerry Curve 8350i can be sluggish at times and we had problems sending e-mails.

Nextel customers looking for a full-featured smartphone with the carrier's famed Direct Connect push-to-talk capabilities will be well-served by the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8350i.

RIM BlackBerry Curve 8350i Review

 

So you thought Nextel was a dying brand, eh? Well, so did we, but Sprint CEO Dan Hesse feels otherwise and some recent life has been breathed into the iDEN lineup. First came some sleek(er) handsets, the i576 and i776, and now we have a flagship data...

When I was at CES 2009 in Vegas the other week I finally had a chance to get my hands on the new BlackBerry Curve 8350i from Sprint/Nextel. It's a cool device. When you see the pictures you think it's pretty much an identical form factor to the
