The BlackBerry Bold packs one of the best QWERTY keypads around, but it’s rather bulky. Now the BlackBerry Curve corrects this weight issue with a body slim enough to make Kate Moss blush, but it’s far less pokeable (than the Bold, not the supermodel). It didn’t take long for some bright-spark at RIM, to put two and two together, and release a handset with the best of both. Enter the BlackBerry Tour. Aside from the ace keypad, it comes with a 480×360 screen, Bluetooth, MicroSD slot, and 3.2MP autofocus camera. Looks like a Bold in Curve’s clothing.
The original Viewty was great. A solid touchscreen phone with a fantastic camera, and haptics that manufacturers still have trouble matching. So when we got wind of the latest Viewty Smart, we danced a little mobile-inspired jig. Rocking the same LG 3D user interface seen on the Arena, its got a gorgeous 8MP camera, complete with LED flash and ISO up to 1600, and a slick 3in WVGA touchscreen. It also comes packing Wi-Fi, GPS, DivX support, and is compatible with 32GB MicroSD. Watch out for a full review as soon as we find one.
