The Blackberry Curve (technical name: Blackberry 8300) is a more consumer friendly addition to the Blackberry lineup. A 2 megapixel camera with flash, extensive media (movies and audio) playback capabilities, and all the usual productivity features Blackberries are known for are all included in the Curve. Some people view the Curve as the multimedia version of the Blackberry 8800.
Similar to the 8800 the Curve features a 2.5" screen with a resolution of 320x240 which is comparable to media players such as the iPod Video. Also similar to the 8800, the Curve features a full QWERTY (that is: same button layout as a computer) keyboard. Other features include a microSD slot for more storage, and Bluetooth 2.0 support for stereo headsets. Menu navigation occurs with the now standard Blackberry trackball. Transferring movies, music and other files is done through the included software application which performs some movie conversion to get the proper format.
