Blackberry sets the Curve with 8300 phone
Waterloo (ON) - Research in Motion (RIM) has cut the ribbon on its newest Blackberry phone, the Curve 8300. RIM says it is the smallest and lightest Qwerty phone to be released under the Blackberry name.
The 8300, which sports a unique curved design, has a thickness of just 0.6 inches and tips the scales at 3.9 ounces. It sports a backlit screen with a resolution of 320x240. All the Blackberry staples are here, including the trackball, pre-installed media player, and Bluetooth.
In addition, it has a two megapixel digital camera and a mobile photo editing application. Flash storage is possible with the microSD slot.
The phone is making its way to service providers now, and will be available for consumers in the next few weeks.
