Blackberry Curve 8900

You have heard of the Blackberry Curve that became very popular in North America, but you need to watch out for the next generation of this awesome smartphone. At first glance, the Blackberry Curve 8900 looks too good to be true with its size small enough to fit a full QWERTY keyboard. The phone measures at 4.29 inches by 2.36 inches by 0.53 inches and weighing just below 4 ounces. However, unlike its predecessor, the Blackberry Curve 8900 looks more similar to Blackberry Storm.

The 2.44-inch TFT LCD screen can support up to 65,000 colors. Although it looks very colorful, resolution is solid, and the contrast is superb, it seems not enough to display images with higher definition. Meanwhile, its 3.2-megapixel camera can digitally zoom up to 2x. It also has a flash as well as several options such as auto focus and image stabilization.

The 35-key backlit QWERTY keyboard gives you that same feel as the Blackberry Curve of yore with its almost identical layout, although the latest Curve model features a keyboard that slope every so slightly. There is also a trackball located on the front face as well as a bunch of dedicated keys including the Lock button at the roof.

The new-gen Blackberry Curve also has several features that the original Curve does not offer, such as Wi-Fi, which enables Internet access. It also has a built-in GPS, designed to work with Blackberry Maps and other locator software. That makes less spending on those expensive tracking devices. The Curve 8900 has a built-in media player that enables you to play songs and videos.

The Blackberry Curve 8900 gives you the performance of the first-gen Blackberry Curve but with a feel of the Blackberry Bold. By the looks of this smartphone, it is definitely more powerful than the previous model. It is currently available in Canada at Rogers.
