BlackBerry Curve 3G

If you're looking for a new BlackBerry and don't really need all the bells and whistles the Torch offers, then maybe the BlackBerry Curve 3G is the device for you. Rogers, having previously released the BlackBerry Curve 3G in grey now has the "Smokey Violet" version available for purchase. The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 specs are great for a cost effective BlackBerry purchase. QWERTY keyboard, 2.0 MP camera, built-in Wi-Fi, GPS, holds up to 32GB with a mircoSD card and a trackpad. It would have been nice to see a better screen but, as it stands the 320x240 display serves it's purpose just fine. Picking one up will only set ya back $49.99 on a 3/yr contract with Rogers.

Hey Bla1ze,

Is there a CB review in the works for this device? I know a few people debating this or stepping up to the Bold 9700 and I don't really have a good CB review to reference.

I second this request. Both myself and my girlfriend are looking at new phones soon and still debating between Pearl, Curve, Torch, and Bold 9780.

That said, this colour makes for a pretty sexy phone and I could see my girlfriend really liking it at least from the appearance perspective.

I'd like to have a 'cherry' or 'raspberry' on my hands. The Bold 9700 is, me thinks, geared towards 'professionals' and as such would not (a color version) fit well in a formal atmosphere. This is what I mean when I say RIM needs a more consumer oriented line.

Why does RIM always come up with selling their devices in limited color choices and scecondly WHY ARE PEOPLE STILL BUYING TETHER FOR BLACKBERRY? I use BlackBerry Desktop Manager tethered to my Bold 9700 via USB cable and that's all I need. Maybe I'm missing something but why would you buy tether if you can perform this function for free?
