The BlackBerry Curve 8530 is the latest in this popular line of smartphones. This model offers a redesigned look, Wi-Fi, and other consumer-oriented features. This smartphone has a QVGA display above a QWERTY keyboard. Between these two is an optical trackpad in place of a trackball or D-pad. This device puts an emphasis on multimedia; in addition to the necessary audio and video players, on top is a set of hardware keys dedicated to controlling music and video playback, as well as a 3.5 mm headset jack.
- Updated styling
- Battery life outperforms other BlackBerrys
- Just average call quality
- Small LED indicator
- Low-resolution camera
On balance, however, unless you're a world-traveling power user, the Curve is a much better deal than any other BlackBerry for Sprint right now.
