Well, I said I was going to be one of the guys that bought a Palm Pre, but fate stepped in and dealt me a Blackberry Curve 8900 Smartphone, and what a beauty she is, with its crisp and clear screen(480×360), to its speedy WI-FI connection, and its awesome camera (3.2 MP), I am very happy man. I have had the phone for less than a month, but its truly is an amazing phone. I had unplugged it from the charger yesterday am at about 3am(don’t ask me why I was up at 3am on a Saturday night and not out!) and haven’t plugged it in yet and its 10:15pm on Monday evening. WI-FI and Bluetooth were also on the whole time. One of the things I did was turn the brightness down on the Curve 8900 from100% to 20%, you barely notice a difference yet, apparently it nets you 25+% battery life… if you interested in reading about the full specs check it out here.
Another thing to mention is “BlackBerry App World” if you haven’t installed it yet, you should do so now… check it out here.
The Curve 8900 is a GSM(non 3G) phone, for you CDMA(EVDO) people, there is a new smartphone that has already shown up in Canada, its called the BlackBerry Tour, check it out here. Judging from the specs it seems that it is 3G capable, so I am guessing that there will be a GSM “3G” version that we could just swap out our SIM cards and start using the new “Tour” also.
