      The Blackberry Curve 8900 offered by AT&T is a solid device for business users to casual users alike.

      When Research In Motion (RIM), the company that makes Blackberry, puts out a device, you know it’s going to be good.

      They don’t come out with phones everyday so they strive for maybe 1-2 releases/updates a year.

      The Blackberry (BB) Curve 8900 has been out for quite a while now. I have had the pleasure of using it for a while up until I upgrading the the Blackberry Bold 9700.

      The BB Curve 8900 is a great, slim, phone that packs many features.

      The phone itself is gorgeous. It’s black and silver with a very generous screen. The black trackball also looks great and won’t get


      dirty as easily as the white ones.

      The keyboard on the BB Curve 8900 is one of my favorites. To be honest, I prefer it to the keyboard on the Bold 9700.

      The chicklet style gives great travel and feedback when typing out long messages or emails. I really feel at home with that keyboard. I feel that anyone would be able to get used to it within minutes.

      The Blackberry Operating System (OS) is something a lot of people feel is outdated. I agree. Although it works and gets the job done, it could look a little nicer. RIM often adds cover ups to make it looks a little nicer but once you go deep into menus, you can see ...


      • the blank white backgrounds with plain black text. Nothing too special here.

        The camera is great on this phone (for a cell phone). It’s a 3.2MP camera. More phones today are coming out with 5MP cameras, though. Hopefully RIM and Blackberry will catch up.

        Blackberrys are the best messaging phones out there. Period.

        From texting, to email, to BBM, blackberry does it like no other.

        Texting is great. Simple, fast, efficient. Blackberry has a great SMS/MMS/Messages app.

        Email on Blackberrys is impeccable. Considering these phones are meant for business users, email is usually always reliable.

        BBM is something unique to Blackberrys. It’s a pin-based messaging service for Blackberry users only. I love it because it doesn’t count toward you texting so if you

        have a limited amount of texts a month, you don’t have to worry with BBM.

        Internet on Blackberrys could be better. The 8900 uses AT&T EDGE connection which is pretty bad. This is one of the main reasons I upgraded to the 9700. The 9700 has 3G. EDGE vs. 3G is like dial-up vs. hi-speed internet. There is just no comparison.

        Overall the Blackberry 8900 is a solid device. It will still do any job you throw at it but with just a little patience. The keyboard is amazing and that is one of the most important factors on phones like these. If you can, though, I would upgrade to the Blackberry Bold 9700. There are more than enough welcome upgrades over the 8900.
