BlackBerry Curve 8900 Review

Welcome back to, today i am gonna discuss about BlackBerry Curve 8900 which is RIM’s first ever smartphone to come equipped with Wi-Fi, GPS and a 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera.


  • The Curve 8900 is equipped with a smaller display (2.4-inches) as compared to the Bold’s 2.6-inch TFT LCD
  • The Black Trackball or ‘Black Pearl’, as it were, looks better with this handset and we still believe this is the best form of mobile UI navigation, bar none.
  • Its full QWERTY keypad is well laid out and with segregated keys like this, typing is also a whole lot easier in comparison to the Bold.
  • On one side of the handset is a singular key for voice activating features and on the other side is the micro USB connectivity port, Camera key, volume/zoom keys and a 3.5mm handsfree cum earphone socket.
  • The handset is lightweight and that makes it easy to carry.
  • The camera with its LED flash is located at the rear, and though the handset doesn’t have a hot swap slot for the microSD card, you won’t need to remove the battery to get to it.

Features and Performance
Interface and OS Performance

  • The interface is unchanged. It’s no different from the Bold’s UI so rest assured it’s fast and fluid.
  • There are no lag or jerky motions while navigating.
  • The icons are large and clearly depictive of what their features activate.


Good 🙂

  • Well designed handset

  • Keypad is spaced out well

  • Camera quality is good

  • Audio and video players are great

  • All other BlackBerry features work perfectly

Bad 🙁

  • Bit of an issue with BIS and EDGE speed (possible issue with test handset)

Thanks: Shayne Rana & Angelo Mathews 🙂
