Pros: great keyboard, shar screen, best in class email
Cons: Trackball failure, limited internal memory, large form factor
The Curve may be the best BlackBerry out there as of July 2008. It's the slimmest full Qwerty berry, but it's still a bit chuncky up against the variety of Pearls. Voice quality is acceptable, but hopefully it's the keyboard and email you're after. Both are excellent. My trackball got wonky after 6 months of (ab)use, but I'm finding that's standard with trackball'd berrys. Where hath my scroll wheel gone?
