Still in love with the Blackberry Curve

December 3rd, 2007 at 8:36 am by David Farrar

Well I’ve had one for four days now, and am still very much in love with my new toy.  I’ve discovered it has a 1 GB hard drive, so one can still thousands of photos in it before it even gets close to full. Also the camera can do up to a 5x zoom.

The GPS works fine, and is faster than the GPS in my car.  Unlike the car GPS though, no close up maps of NZ are yet available which is a small pain.  Hopefully they will become available before too long.

Getting the e-mail to work was very easy.  Just clicked onto the configure e-mail button, then logged into Blackberry with my existing username and password. It then recognises I have a different blackberry ID, and it asks whether e-mail should now be sent to this new one.  You say yes, and that’s all that is needed.

Yet to try out the video player on it – will try copying a TV show onto it and seeing how well it works.

    Dont forget to declare your free gift on your tax return. About $550 worth.

    lets hope someone at IRD sees this and puts a note on your file, or a little sparrow calls them and has a discussion

    Hey David

    Just got a curve 3 weeks ago when my 7290 fell off the desk and broke its screen.

    If you do download Google Maps 4 Mobile could u give us an indication of how much data it uses for grabbing map data as I am thinking of grabbing it myself and and dont want to be paying for 20 meg of data from the maping.

    Also how have you found the GPS in town? I find it does not find satelites about 1/3 of the time and I am not sure if I have a funky phone or if cities are just bad for GPS signal.

    Regards
    Alexander
