RIM BlackBerry 8300 Curve

O2, Vodafone

PLUS
• All the familiar BlackBerry virtues – especially push email
• Basic but surprisingly good music player
• Useful extras – excellent PC Media Management Suite

MINUS
• Quad-band but no 3G
• BlackBerry user interface looks a bit unsophisticated (or maybe a bit American)
• 64Mb user memory fills up quickly, no microSD card supplied for the slot

WE SAY
A real BlackBerry but with a real music player too (and a camera)
