RIM today announced their new flagship device for consumers: the BlackBerry Curve 8300. The Curve combines the camera and other consumer-friendly features of the Pearl with the full QWERTY keyboard and QVGA display of the more business-oriented 8800. The Curve - a GSM device - sports other upgrades, though, as the first BlackBerry with a 2 megapixel camera, the first to support stereo Bluetooth, the first with a 3.5mm jack for standard stereo headphones, and the first to support 4GB microSD memory cards. On the software side, it has a new music player, new "high-performance" web browser with RSS, and speaker-independent voice control. AT&T will offer the Curve later this quarter.

Launch Date

Looks like the BB is set to lauch with us, at&t, on May 24. From what I have read it will be 3G, but will not have GPS built in. PTT is unknown. It would make sense that it has different features from the 8800 since they just lauched it, which by the way, is the best "business" type phone one can buy. I expect big things from this one.
Jimbob-Hey from the classes I have taken from learning edge for this phone, it should have gps just like the 8800.

Whats wrong with sprint?

Why is it that sprint always get the best phones months after everyone else? Is there a possibility of sprint getting this phone before the end of the year?
for the Millionth Time.......JULY, Verizon got a 60 day exclusive. However, it will be WELL WORTH THE WAIT.

And sprint does get some good exclusives the m610 and the upstage are both fairly innovative in their own respect.

This is one of the times that T- Mobile needs to be first with this

But since they are not, Cingular will continue to Drop that "cellular heat" this summer. And I don't even mess with Blackberries like that....
Given the coverage quality of T-Mobile vs. Cingular/AT&T in my area I'm glad it's available for Cingular/AT&T first.
Even if the data plan is horribly expensive compared to T-Mo.
T-Mobile is getting this, but in the 8320 form. The T-Mobile's 8320 has Wi-Fi, AT&T's 8300 version does not.

Just the phone I have been waiting for...

Finally the phone I have been waiting for. I have given up on the iPhone, as well, it is just too plain expensive and doesn't have a physical keyboard. I was waiting for the 8800, but with lack of 3G & a camera...well it was just out of the question.

Yay for this new BlackBerry....the perfect phone.
Plus, I think the fact that it can handle 4GB microSD cards is a really, really BIG selling point!!!
