The BlackBerry Curve (8300)We're tickled pink over here about the release of the 8300 'Curve'. As the name suggests, this model is a sleek, sexy and curvy model that should appeal more to the general consumer market.

Key features of the BlackBerry 'Curve' as I see them:

  • 2 MegaPixel Camera (w flash and 3x zoom)
  • Lightweight... Only 4 ounces
  • 320x240 Display (colors are crisp and vivid)
  • An improved media player
  • New noise-cancellation technology when on calls
Possible Drawbacks 

I've been reading reviews and comments all over the web. While most are impressed and excited. I'm seeing a few critical drawbacks that leave me scratching my head.

Where's the GPS and Wi-Fi? For the life of me I can't figure out why this model doesn't come equipped with them? And broadband support? Where's that?

Perhaps RIM is planning to unveil those features on another model, or a new variation of the 8300, but why wouldn't they build a cadillac from the start?

RIM must know what they're doing here, but I'm still scratching my head.
