RIM BlackBerry Curve 9350 ReviewBlackBerry Curve 9350 6
The tiny 1040mAh battery is only rated for 5.5 hours of talk time, which may not be enough to get the heaviest users though a day.
The BlackBerry Curve 9350 is the entry level device in RIM’s new lineup, but it serves to point out what is wrong with RIM. In the midst of bleeding market share to Android and iOS on the strength of the operating system, RIM has chosen hardware as their new rallying cry. The Curve 9350 is a good entry level phone, but it unfortunately still runs the same basic OS that the Curve 8330 did three years ago, and at $79.99 on contract the phone is well overpriced. This new Curve is fine, but when you strip it down essentially it’s like most BlackBerry devices before it. RIM continues to release the same device time and time again with some hardware and ultimately minor software revisions, while largely ignoring the very culprit for their continued market share plunge.
