Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Music fares a little better with the neatly laid-out player, though it would have been nice to have the 3.5mm jack on the top rather than the side, since you'll almost certainly want to replace the tinny supplied headphones.

Blackberry Curve 3G

Decent battery life and full of messaging goodness

The Curve comes with a 2GB MicroSD card as standard on top of the 256MB onboard memory and you can add up to 32GB. Battery life is pretty good, managing a good two days of fairly heavy use out of it before recharging.

Verdict

The Blackberry Curve 3G is at the bottom of RIM's range but still manages to pack in a useful range of features, including HSDPA 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS along with the standard Blackberry messaging expertise. The screen and camera are the main indicators of its budget origins but overall it's a good, solid, introduction to Blackberry smart phones. ®
