The Curve 8530 edits documents, hooks into major IM services including Google Talk, and supports push e-mail for up to 10 POP, IMAP, Microsoft Exchange, and Web-based e-mail accounts.
It's not quite as roomy as the Bold or Tour keyboards, but it's still comfortable enough for extended typing sessions.
The Curve's dual-band EV-DO Rev A (850/1900 MHz) and Wi-Fi radios provide plenty of high-speed data connectivity (the old Curve 8330 lacked Wi-Fi).
(Read the Verizon review for more details.) The Curve 8530 on Sprint measures 4.3 by 2.4 by 0.5 inches and weighs 3.9 ounces.
I tested a black model; Sprint also sells a violet version.

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.
It will for sure get the OS 5.0 update as well - they must have left it off by accident.
