The BlackBerry Curve 8900 is a BlackBerry mobile phone developed by Research In Motion. 

Its project name was Javelin. The first official release network/company for the 8900 in North America was Rogers Wireless in Canada. The official release on T-Mobile USA was on February 11, 2009.[1] The phone has been released on most UK networks. It was first thought to be a part of the latest 9000 series phones; however it was revealed to be an 8900 series due to the lack of 3G, unlike the BlackBerry Bold, and was officially named the BlackBerry Curve 8900.[2] The Curve 8900 is a quad-band GSM/EDGE phone, unlike the BlackBerry Tour which is an EV-DO device, with a GPS. In the BlackBerry model lineup, the device appears to be a replacement for the older BlackBerry Curve 8300 and is an upgrade in all aspects and features. The most significant differences to the recently released and related BlackBerry Bold is the Curve's smaller size, better camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, and lack of 3G connectivity. Additional differences include the smaller but higher resolution Curve 8900 screen (480×360 vs 480×320), different USB port (mini on Bold vs. micro on 8900), smaller keyboard, larger internal memory, slightly slower processor, and a lower price. Several months after the 8900's US debut on T-Mobile, it was released by AT&T Wireless as well.

I've had my Blackberry curve for about a year now. I believe it has both good and bad qualities, when compared against the iPhone.    The Good  -It's MUCH easier to type on a blackberry than an iPhone. If you're someone who does a lot of texting or emailing, I'd definitely say the Blackberry is the way to go.  -It stores all of your calls, texts, BBMs (Blackberry Messager), and emails in the same inbox. With an iPhone, you have to go into seperate spots …

I bought my first Curve about 6 months ago. Pretty sleek. Has GSP, bluetooth, exchange, camera, full keyboard, just about everything you would want. The only problem? Cheap parts!    Two  months ago, I woke and my Curve had not been charging all night. I figured it must have been "user error" and simply went to work and plugged it into the charger. A few hours later, still no charge and the phone was dead. I went to the AT&T store where they showed me the slot where …
