BlackBerry Curve review

F or owners of the current series of the Blackberry Curve, the Blackberry Curve 8900 is worth the upgrade. The new Blackberry look is nicely integrated in the design and only minor design changes have been made such as the ability to remove the memory card with more ease. The 3.2 Megapixel digital camera is an improvement although it is a lot slower and the captured pictures are not up to current standards. The integrated GPS antenna makes the Curve 8900 useable as a navigation system, providing the proper software is installed. The screen is strikingly clear and pictures and videos are astonishingly well displayed. The phone's multimedia solutions and the neat media player are easy to use. The only disadvantage is the lack of HSDPA support. You don't miss it when emailing but you do when surfing the Internet. This makes the Blackberry Curve the smaller brother of the Blackberry Bold. Although the design of the Curve 8900 appeals more to me than that of the Bold, I would still go for the speed.
