RIM got hit with the 8800, and now with the launch of the 8300, the company is aiming at revitalizing its market presence. However, it would be unfair to compare the Curve based on the company’s other products. This time around, RIM made it very clear that the target audience for this phone are people who are looking for certain features like access to mail etc. and the phone offers it all. How does it manage that? Let’s take a look.
What’s more, the buttons are quite responsive and evenly spaced, which makes typing a pleasure. The left and right shift buttons, each required for typing symbols or upper case letters also supplement the keypad, and I love the keypad for the convenience it offers. I typed long mails, and also used Google Talk extensively, but couldn't muster enough reasons to trash it.
The screen is a 2.5 inch 65,000 color screen with a 320x240 pixel resolution. Like its predecessor, this phone also incorporates the white glowing trackball. Having this, according to the company, is one of the turning points for the phone as users can navigate with ease. Quite frankly, I like the trackball.
There is another reason to fall right in love with the phone — the 3.5mm jack that you will find at the left side of the phone. Personally, this appeals to me more than anything else. This is because it enables me to use my Sony earphones to watch videos and listen to music. This is the first step RIM has taken to make its phones more multimedia friendly. On the same side, just below the earphone jack you will find the miniUSB slot. And the Voice dialing button can be found on the same side too.
On the right side you will find the Volume buttons and the camera button. On the back you will find the Camera with flash and the self-portrait mirror. What I don’t like about the Curve, however, is that it doesn’t feature a hot swap slot. In fact, you will need to take the battery out each time you need to take the Micro SD Card out, which in my opinion — sucks!
