The Bottom Line The BlackBerry Bold 9930 is the best QWERTY BlackBerry to date, but should be priced lower. The RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360 makes a great entry-level offering for those already in the BlackBerry camp. The BlackBerry Curve 9310 is still the same ho-hum handset you can expect from RIM, but for a no-contract BlackBerry, it's reliable and makes texting a breeze. The BlackBerry Curve 9310 is still the same ho-hum handset you can expect from RIM, but for a $50 BlackBerry (with contract), it's reliable and makes texting a breeze.
