Vodafone New Zealand is introducing the GPS-enabled BlackBerry Curve 8310 in the country. Available exclusively from Vodafone in New Zealand, the BlackBerry Curve 8310 is an ideal choice for customers who want advanced GPS navigation, together with a full range of mobile communications features, media player and built-in camera.
Through its built-in Global Positioning System (GPS), the BlackBerry Curve 8310 can pinpoint its location and provides "out-of-the-box" support for a variety of location-based applications and services.
Coupled with third party mapping applications, the handset enables direction finding and route planning. Vodafone New Zealand will shortly release special data pricing packages to allow its customers to take full advantage of this feature.
In addition, the BlackBerry Curve 8310 features a full QWERTY keyboard and a built-in spell checker with customisable dictionary. The BlackBerry Curve 8310 also allows the viewing of email attachments (including popular file formats such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Adobe PDF).
The new smartphone also comes with an advanced media player, 3.5mm stereo headset jack and a high resolution display (320 x 240 pixels) with light sensing technology, perfect for watching videos in full screen layout and listening to music on the move.
For users who plan to travel with their handsets, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310 supports 850/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS and EDGE networks.
There is also support for Bluetooth 2.0 wireless technology, including stereo audio profile, and a two megapixel digital camera with five times digital zoom and built-in flash.
