2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 8 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

  • Excellent build quality (steel bezel, high quality components, soft touch finish, carbon-fiber laced back cover)

  • Excellent QWERTY keypad (spacious, tactile, intelligent layout)

Display

  • Bright, crisp, high-resolution display

Software

  • BlackBerry Internet Service plan is required to use many features (browser/ mail/ IM)
