RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G for Sprint Review
As usual, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G scored high marks on the performance section. Callers were amazed at how good we sounded, calling it “high def kinda stuff.” They said we were extremely clear and that they could hear everything, and rated us 9/10. Things were good but didn’t have the wow factor on our end. We could hear them just fine and they sounded perfectly natural. Battery life remains the same at 4.5 hours of talk time.

It’s almost not fair to review the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 right now. The main reason it was brought to market was because it is BlackBerry OS 6 compatible, otherwise it’s just a slightly better Curve 8530. Even in its current state it is better than the 8530 though, so at least there are some improvements like better feel, a faster processor, more memory and an improved trackpad. As it stands the Curve 3G 9330 is a great entry-level BlackBerry that only stands to get better once it receives an OS upgrade.
