The RIM Black Berry Curve series has proven to be a popular line for Research in Motion, making its way to every major U. carrier and even regional service providers like U. However, you do lose a bit in functionality since U. Cellular doesn't currently offer location-based services or phone-as-a-modem capabilities. You can also use the Black Berry Internet Service to access as many as 10 personal/business POP3 or IMAP4 e-mail accounts. Cellular also includes downloads for several popular instant messaging clients, including Yahoo, Google Talk, and Windows Live Messenger.
Like its larger CDMA brothers, Sprint and Verizon Wireless, U. Cellular landed itself the RIM Black Berry Curve 8330 and in general, it offers many of the same great features and performance of the others. The smartphone offers support for the Black Berry Enterprise server as well as Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino, or Novell Group Wise to deliver corporate e-mail in real time.
I must admit to being a little surprised when I first received the Verizon Black Berry Curve2. A few weeks back we ran a poll asking what color options you'd want to see for Black Berry 10 devices.
While a good number of you said you'd want to see many color options, most people simply want black and white...
Though the player is pretty basic, it does support MP3, WMA, AAC, AAC , e AAC , AMR-NB, and MIDI music files, and MPEG4, WMV, and H.263 video clips.
There's a search function, playlist creation, shuffle and repeat, and you get a full-screen mode for video playback.
For an entry level smartphone, the Black Berry Curve 8530 packs a lot of punch!
As usual, use caution when installing even though this is an official OS... Especially, if you've been having issues with any previous OS...
For those of us rocking the 8530, OS updates seem to be few and far between, but here's a little something to get you excited.
Hands on Initial Review of the Verizon Black Berry Curve2 8530!
While on a recent trip I had a chance to spend some solid hands-on time with the Verizon Black Berry Curve2 8530.
