Updating blackberry curve 8330
The device syncs with PCs and Macs with the Roxio-based Desktop Media Manager and Black Berry Desktop Software for Mac, and you can even sync unprotected i Tunes tracks.The 2-megapixel camera took splotchy, saturated photos, and recorded 320-by-240, 15 frame-per-second videos were too dark; both could use updating.but now we officially know which devices are getting the update thanks to a new knowledge base article on Black Berry's website. In order to optimize the Black Berry smartphone user experience with Black Berry Device Software 5.0, Black Berry smartphones must have more than 64MB of memory to support this version of Black Berry Device Software.Black Berry Device Software 5.0 is targeted to be supported by Research In Motion on the above noted Black Berry smartphones. I could see it being easy to get mad if you currently are using a Black Berry that won't get the update (especially if you recently picked up a Curve 8310/8320), but really, it just doesn't make sense to upgrade to something that'll bog your device down.Voice calls were warm and clear, with distinctly pronounced syllables and no background hiss whatsoever.The 8530 also had plenty of volume in the earpiece. Calls sounded fine through an Aliph Jawbone Icon Bluetooth headset, and the speakerphone was loud enough for outdoor use.It will for sure get the OS 5.0 update as well - they must have left it off by accident.
It also costs less, and adds some extra multimedia power that the Verizon version lacks.
Since this is a Sprint handset, you get Sprint TV, NFL Mobile Live, NASCAR Sprint Cup, and Sprint Navigation.
I don't usually compare plans in phone reviews, but Sprint phones tend to run about to cheaper per month than equivalent Verizon versions once you pile on the features; that holds true with the Curve 8530.
In the case of the Black Berry Curve 8330, it looks like having to wait a year to get the device after the Curve was originally released paid off. At least the Bold 9700 and Storm2 are just around the corner if you're thinking it's time for an upgrade.
It seems the new Black Berry Curve 8520 is missing from the list above.
