BlackBerry Nav 3.0
Usability and features are to hardware what taste and service are to dining—the necessary components that make or break an item. The smartphone sector is primarily made up of Apple iPhone and BlackBerry devotees as divided as the similar Microsoft Windows and Apple OS fans. But, while users understand the tradeoffs and compromises, manufacturers understand that competition means they must produce new versions constantly. For BlackBerry, the next change involves navigation.
The existing T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8520 is different because it has a trackpad, not a ball. People were finding that the nav balls would wear over time and we personally had them pop out more times than one. While apprehensive about the responsiveness of the pad, a test revealed it is not too sensitive but just responsive enough.
An external publicist confirmed that all future BlackBerry products will have the trackpad and the new Curve 8520 will be available on other carriers in the future. In addition, some of the updated BlackBerry items will come with cameras that eliminate shaking, to reveal a more clear picture. Waterloo, you’ve come a long way…
