Blackberry Curve 9300


The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 ships with BlackBerry OS 5 but it is upgradeable to the latest BlackBerry OS 6. The new OS has a revamped home screen, a new Webkit browser, universal search, a new notifications bar, and more. The Curve 3G 9300 has the usual BlackBerry features you've come to know and love. It has voice dialing, conference calling, speed dialing, a speakerphone, and a vibrate mode. As with most BlackBerry phones, it also has a healthy set of messaging features that include text and multimedia messaging, instant messaging with BlackBerry Messenger, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, and Windows Live, and of course, e-mail. 

You can use your own personal POP3 or IMAP accounts, and it's also compatible with most corporate e-mail systems like BlackBerry Enterprise, Microsoft Exchange, and IBM Lotus Domino. Other features include GPS with AT&T Navigator support, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g), and stereo Bluetooth. The GPS in the phone is useful with other location-based apps like Where and AllSport GPS, and when adding geotag information to photos. Productivity tools include a calendar, a memo pad, a task list, a calculator, and document viewers for Microsoft Office, Corel WordPerfect, and PDF documents. There's also a file viewer and the built-in BlackBerry Web browser. The AT&T version of the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 comes with a few built-in apps as well.
