Prototype of the BlackBerry Curve 9300 appears on video
Well look what we have here. It's a working pre-production prototype of the BlackBerry Curve 9300. Branded with the name of T-Mobile U.K. and featuring the carrier's 3G frequencies under the hood, we could see this handset make it across the pond to the States for either T-Mobile or AT&T. The BlackBerry Curve 9300 takes over for the Curve 8500 and updates some of the older model's features. For example, instead of navigating with a trackball that eventually wears down and needs to be replaced, the newer 'Berry uses an optical trackpad which is not only more precise, but also has no moving parts that can wear down. Another design change has the buttons on the newer phone flush with the body. One thing that didn't change-at least not on this prototype-is the use of BlackBerry OS 5. Some had speculated that the 9300 would debut OS 6, but it would appear that RIM wasn't ready to release a handset with mind-blowing changes just yet. All this does is make those BlackBerry fans pining for the Bold 9800 a little more impatient.

The BlackBerry Curve they're showing with the trackball is the 8900, the 8500 is the new Curve with the trackpad but has only EDGE. Although I do love the 9300. Hopefully it will come to AT&T first

I couldn't be happier with my new unlocked phones! This has an unbelievably fast processor, great feel and easy to text on. I used to own a unlocked lg phones, but I'm so much happier with my brand new unlocked blackberry phones. This blackberry curve 9300 is so much better for my business and pulls my email in so much faster. And I really couldn't be happier with it since it is an unlocked at&t phones and it's a unlocked 3g phones I can take it overseas. My family loves my new phone and can't get enough of the games. I'm going to purchase another one for my son for his birthday from Definitely would recommend this phone.

For everyone who is about to unlock your phone. Please don’t go for free code and unlock code generators. Most of these codes won't work and this will reduce your chances to unlock your phone. Always go for some trusted websites. Pay some dollars and get the original codes. I got my code form ( I got my code instantly and I unlocked my phone without any trouble. :-)
