BlackBerry Curve 8310 - with added GPS

 BlackBerry Curve 8310 Discontinued
6th August 2007

Hot on the heels of the original 8300, the BlackBerry Curve 8310 takes all the features of the 8300 and adds integrated GPS and navigation software.

In the main the 8310's specifications are almost identical to the BlackBerry 8300 - there's a 320x240 pixel display, microSD expandable memory, 2 megapixel camera, multimedia player, mini trackball control and of course it features the usual excellent BlackBerry email client, plus a suite a document viewers and productivity applications.

 BlackBerry 8310 This particular model is exclusive to Vodafone - at the moment the BlackBerry Curve 8310 isn't available on any other carrier. Indeed, at the moment the only place you can buy the BlackBerry 8310 is from Vodafone Germany.

As we mentioned earlier, the key different between the BlackBerry Curve 8310 and the 8300 is the inclusion of GPS and the Vodafone Navigator package which includes route planning and can also factor in traffic and weather conditions. Maps are downloaded from a central server to keep them up-to-date.


However, our recent experiences with this sort of navigation system indicate that although it's useful to have a SatNav system on you "just in case", the interface on most phones isn't really suitable for use in the car - so you'll need to set the route in advance in most cases rather than "on the go".

The BlackBerry Curve 8310 is available now from Vodafone in Germany at just under €30 on a €45/month contract. Availability in other Vodafone regions is not known at the time of going to press.
