I’m not usually one to pass along recommendations for technology but I just got a new Blackberry a few days ago and am really impressed. It’s the Blackberry Curve 8900.

Over the years, I’ve usually had a pretty low opinion of Blackberries, mostly because their voice quality was poor, the operating system was locked down, the internet browser was horrible, and their technology always seemed at least a year or two behind the times.

This new unit feels really polished and boasts an amazing high-res screen, 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera, much faster internet browser, GPS and a bunch of other goodies.

I was debating whether to try the Blackberry Bold but I heard that people at my office have had problems with spotty signal strength due to switching between 2G and 3G networks.

All in all, I am pretty impressed.

    Glad you like it. I have an older Curve and have been very happy with it. I read the comparative reviews each time a new iPhone model comes out, but it is clear that Blackberry remains the king of e-mail. That is what I most need, so I plan to stick with them.

      sigh, i've always wanted to try an iphone but alas my firm's IT department doesn't support it. the biggest attractors for me to the iphone are itunes and the app store. i am still miffed that BB's OS is still so locked down. oh well, this new BB seems like it'll tide me over for a good long while.

    They are need tools if you need them. My daughter and son-in-law have blackberry storms and they love them. I just have a simple Verizon phone that can’t even text, and it was a battle to get me to have that. I suppose if I can find a job that requires me to be in contact with my customers and coworkers 24/7 I will have to have something like that, but I do not like being bothered 24/7.
