BlackBerry Curve 8530 review

BlackBerry Curve 8530 ReviewThe BlackBerry Curve 8330 is not a bad phone for the price, it pretty much has everything that you need from a smart phone. The Trackpad is easy to use I find it works very well compared to the previous trackball BlackBerry devices.  It is pretty much everything you would expect from a Blackberry in the past few years, and if you don’t have unlimited data on your prepaid plan you can always use Wifi. The Camera is ok, but lacks a flash which on all accounts is strange for a newer phone.  The Battery needs to be put on charge most days even with light use. The 3G internet on unlimited is slowish and drops out at time when there is full signal.
