Review: BlackBerry Curve 9370 for Verizon
The BlackBerry browser is a capable piece of software, though it still manages to fall short of the experience offered by Android, iOS, and Windows Phone 7. I thought web sites were generally quick to load over Verizon's 3G network. Performance improved drastically when surfing via Wi-Fi. The real deal-killer in my opinion is the lack of a touch screen. Relying on the trackpad for web site navigation is irksome at best for long browsing sessions.

Because BlackBerrys are intended for business users, they offer far more controls, tools, and options than any consumer will ever bother to explore. The basics, such as wallpapers, ringtones (and ringer profiles), themes, fonts, etc., are all handled easily with the settings tools, which have been broken down in to easier-to-manage groupings.
The home screen can also be customized to a certain extent. It's not as vastly customizable as an Android handset, but users can populate the five different screens with a number of apps, shortcuts, and so on.
