Review: BlackBerry Curve
Though the Curve is aimed at the mass-market set, its business-class smartphone roots are all too clear. Its media apps are a definite improvement over the Pearl's, but don't match the levels set by the competition. On the flip side, the integration of the calling, contact, email and calendar apps will help even the busiest person stay organized and in touch with both their personal as well as professional lives...as long as you don't mind the bare bones look and feel. The Curve succeeds in adding a touch of personality to the smartphone, while retaining its core strengths in enhancing productivity.
Hands-on with the Sony Ericsson K850, Nokia 8600 and 6500 Slide, 6500 Classic, LG Muziq, and BlackBerry Curve.
