    The BlackBerry Curve 8330 is the stylish way to get things done. The BlackBerry Curve 8330 gives you phone, email, organizer, web browsing and instant messaging. And then it goes a step further, providing GPS, BlackBerry Maps, a media player for your video clips and music, and expandable memory to ensure you’ve got the room you need for your media files.

    The BlackBerry 8330 smartphone is still the smallest and lightest BlackBerry smartphone ever to come with a full QWERTY keyboard.

    BlackBerry Curve 8330 features complete functionality, including:
    • Wireless email: Send, receive, forward and reply to messages, and view attachments in popular file formats
    • Advanced phone features: Speakerphone and Voice Activated Dialing, user-definable convenience keys and dedicated Send, End and Mute keys
    • Instant Messaging1: Connect with your IM contacts using popular applications like Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk
    • SMS and MMS : Send text messages and images in an instant
    • Media Player: Listen to your favorite songs and watch video clips
    • Camera: Capture the moment in perfect clarity with 2.0MP, built-in zoom and flash
    • Video recording 2: Record video clips and share them right away via email or MMS
    • Browser: Navigate and browse websites with a roll and click of the trackball. And with streamed mobile media, view videos, music, news clips and more from mobile sites.
    • Organizer: Synch and store your calendar data, address book and more
    • BlackBerry Maps: Get directions and view maps while on the road
    • Corporate data access: Access your vital corporate databases and applications from anywhere
    • Global Positioning System (GPS) capable: Use with BlackBerry Maps or other mapping applications1 to view your geographic location on a map or determine how close you are to shops and services.
    • Largest built-in memory and expandable memory via microSD card
    • Bluetooth capability for hands-free dialogue
    • High-resolution, light-sensing screen
    • Full QWERTY keyboard
    For larger corporate and government organizations, the BlackBerry Curve 8330 smartphone works with BlackBerry Enterprise Server to provide users and IT managers with advanced security and easier access to corporate information.
    Unlike traditional mobile phones, the BlackBerry Curve 8330 smartphone can be centrally managed and supported by IT departments using BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Wireless push delivery of email and data, remote address book look-up and single mailbox integration are just a few of the features available.

    It would have been doubly nice if the CDMA curve was a World Edition phone.

    ~via BB ( Not really a new phone, just a new OS. Sounds like the 8310 will be the same in a few months.

    definitely locked GPS for VZW.

    I decided not to switch 8830 for 8330 for that main reason.

    plus you'll trade world phone for cameraphone. Wasn't worth it to me.

    One thing I wasn't confident of resource info on was whether or not the MicroSD would be capable of microSDHC. As far as I'm informed this is only a firmware issure that will be resolved in the 8830 later. It can read but can't format above 4GB (3.7GB).

    Anyone can doubly confirm that MicroSD tidbit?
