BlackBerry Curve 8350i in the wild!

November 25, 2008 | By | 2 Comments

The folks over at BGR got their hands on a live BlackBerry Curve 8350i. This is the latest in the iDEN BlackBerry lineup, which will launch on Sprint-Nextel sometime in December and on TELUS’ Mike early next year for Canada. Here’s a few bullets from what The Boy Genius had to say about it:

  • The 8350i has a 2.5mm headset jack, not a 3.5mm one, and it comes with a 2.5mm headset in the box.
  • Ships with the much beloved plastic holster, not the leather holster we’re accustomed to.
  • There’s a small size difference. It’s around 2mm taller and 1mm thicker than the other Curves (8300, 8310, 8320, 8330).
  • The PTT button can not be reassigned as a convenience key.
  • Instead of using the same battery as the Curve, the 8350i uses the BlackBerry 8800-series batteries.
  • The side keys are now black instead of being chromed
  • We were told the device isn’t a real beast in terms of the signal department. “It can’t get a stable signal to save its life once it boots up”
