Blackberry Curve 8310

Research In Motion
2007

As with all BlackBerry’s, that QWERTY keyboard is where it’s at. Though, for 2007, this one lacked wifi. 🤨 Good luck competing with that upstart Apple and their iPhone… The 2 megapixel camera went a long way, though, especially for a device that was so much more than just a camera. The beginning of the end for point-and-shooter digital cameras. It looks a bit more like a raspberry in this color but those seeds/keys sure make these devices iconic. However, this size screen wouldn’t cut it for long given the smartphone form factor to come.
