RIM and Verizon's latest BlackBerry Curve smartphone doesn't break much new ground-- yet. Once the upgrade to BlackBerry OS 6 is out, then the Curve 3G 9330 should shine. Until then, it's one of the classier looking Curves with a soft touch back and chromed sides. It boasts the usual excellent 'Berry keyboard and messaging services and it costs significantly less than the Bold. In fact, it's only 29.99 with a 2 year contract after rebate.
The Curve 3G has a 2 megapixel camera, EV-DO 3G, WiFi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.1 and a microSD card slot. Verizon's various services are on board: VZ Navigator, V Cast Video, V Cast Music and more. BlackBerry Maps is also here, as is BlackBerry App World.
Here's our video review of the Verizon BlackBerry Curve 3G, our written review will follow in a few days. We'll also have a review of the T-Mobile version soon too!
