>> Hi! I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the RIM Blackberry Curve 8330 for Sprint. This is very much like the Verizon version except Sprint offers a couple extra services which I'll talk about in a little bit. But I'll just talk about the design a little bit. It has a nice compact phone factor. It manages to squeeze in a full QWERTY keyboard so it's great for messaging and as always you can access your business and personal E-mail on the device. As far as other features, it's got Bluetooth and GPS so you can use it with Sprint navigation which is an add-on service but it will provide you with driving directions and maps and local searches and things like that. Also, it has EV-DO capability so you'll get faster web browsing and download speeds. An extra service here is Sprint has a music store and video streaming that you can watch on here which the Verizon doesn't offer. So that's great if you wanna just purchase a music or see some videos on the go so that's also great. It has a two megapixels camera on the back and you can record your own videos if you want. The only downside of the phone was it had a little bit of spotty call quality but it wasn't so bad that I couldn't carry on the conversation, so really I think it's a great phone and a pretty good value at 179.99.
