Today, we start an occasional series of posts in which we oggle -- and evaluate -- new cell phones and smart phones. The goal: finding the perfect phone for small business users.

The Blackberry Curve has been getting great reviews. Now T-Mobile has added some nice extras in introducing the Blackberry 8300 Curve: GPS, WiFi and @Home service (which lets users make unlimited calls via an in-home router for just $15 per month). The price, just $249 with a two-year contract.

Says Engadget:

We've had a few minutes to play around with the champagne-hued version, and with WiFi added into the Curve's already solid mix, it pretty much goes without saying that this is the best BlackBerry yet. Setting up our wireless network on the Curve was a breeze, though we had some trouble keeping calls from dropping over an Airport Extreme; fortunately, T-Mobile's offering up optimized Linksys routers for a song, and you can always set it up as a separate network if you can't bear to tear down your 802.11a/n setup.


Bottom line: the Blackberry 8300 Curve from T-Mobile is close to the perfect small business -- especially in-home business -- smart phone. The Curve is especially slick and slim, with a full QWERTY keyboard but the best of the Blackberry Pearl's features as well. Add affordable T-Mobile voice and data rates plus WiFi -- not to mention no-per-minute-charge in-office calling via @Home -- and you've got a winner.
