TechRadar's verdict

"BlackBerry's low-cost Curve 3G is highly capable for traditional functions and web browsing, but won't satisfy the media-hungry consumer."
  • Physical QWERTY keyboard is excellent for text
  • Media controls are conveniently located
  • BB OS 6 upgrade coming soon
  • Battery life is good
  • Optical trackpad is improvement on rollerball
  • Camera is a little underpowered
  • Feels a little cheap and plasticky
  • Out-dated OS is not intuitive
  • Apps are expensive and less varied
  • Didn't handle low-reception areas well
