RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 for T-Mobile

The new Curve for T-Mobile (Engadget reported that they noticed an AT&T version as well) is the latest addition to the BlackBerry’s line of smartphones. It is slightly smaller compared to most other Berries, thus the QWERTY keys have also shrinked. Usually it takes some time to getting used to on all QWERTY keyboards and is hard to say if it is comfortable or not from just a few moments with it, but overall we were happy with it. What we noticed is that unlike other RIMs with trackball, the one on 8900 does not light-up when used. This of course is not a big deal, but just strange.

The display is what impressed the most. It is unbelievably bright and crisp! We just went into the gallery and started viewing images and image after image – it was just addictive!

The UI is very similar to what the Bold is running – nice icons, fast responses. The overall impressions were very positive!

I'll take one. And I guess I'll need one of those Touchstone wireless chargers as well.

this is a good article! im sorry, but it definitely needs to be cleaned up--serious grammatical errors and poor syntax plague the entire page.
