Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood

  • THE GOOD

    "The RIM BlackBerry Curve 8530 has 3G and GPS support, which the T-Mobile version did not. The compact smartphone also offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 2-megapixel camera."

  • THE BAD

    The smartphone feels a bit cheap in the hand and has a low-resolution screen. You can only save apps to the phone's main memory.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    "While we're not huge fans of the design, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8530 is a good choice for first-time smartphone buyers and offers more than its GSM counterpart."
