Here is a shot from my new Blackberry Curve 8300 which I recently bought. My previous job required that we have one and now I am fortunate to have a job that I can actually afford one. The Blackberry is basically mobile internet included with a cell phone along with PDF, Excel, Word document viewing. The cost of the monthly plan is pretty steep for just a personal user because you pay for talk time and data, with the later costing a fortune if you web surf on it regularly.
I have been debating for awhile to get the new Curve or the Palm Treo which is pretty much similar in ability but also has the ability to edit Word, Excel files. Also, Pilatus creates an Aircraft Flight Manual which includes performance computations for the Treo and not the Blackberry which at first swayed me until I rationalized how much I would actually use it.
The Curve like the Treo offers the full QWERTY keyboard which means it is laid out like a regular keyboard unlike the Blackberry Pearl or regular cellphone that has 3 characters per digit.
The Curve also has a 2.0 MegaPixel camera which is a bit up on the 1.3 MP camera on the Treo. It allows you to convert a picture to a 4"X6" without causing a poor image to be printed (provided you took a good shot to begin with !).
So far my experience has been really positive (minus the freeakin bill!) and the screen is just great.
The picture above was taken at about 130 km/hr as I headed north on the 416 towards Ottawa. It had been brutaly hot the last few days and these were clouds left over from the front passage and made for a truly beautiful sight.
Safe flying !
