Smartphone review: BlackBerry Curve 8530 on Verizon
      #36029 - 02/17/10 09:53 PM

The BlackBerry Curve 8530 is the CDMA counterpart to the GSM BlackBerry Curve 8520 we reviewed a few months back. The Curve 8530 is available on both Verizon and Sprint, and we look at the Verizon version in our review. The BlackBerry 8530 is the new entry level Curve with a rugged body, RIM's new optical trackpad that replaces the trackball and multimedia controls up top. It runs OS 5 and has WiFi, Bluetooth with a full set of profiles, 3G EV-DO Rev. 0, an SDHC microSD card slot and a 3.5mm stereo jack. Other features include a QVGA display, the new VZ Navigator version 5 and V Cast support.
