Impressive sound quality
The 9220 features BB's sturdy build and iconic keypad. Its UI is pleasant, and multimedia performance is also good. On the other hand, like every BB phone, this one also has a few annoyances such as its BIS dependability. Despite that, for around Rs 10,000 it's a great deal for anyone looking for a QWERTY messenger.

At Rs. 10,990, frankly, the Curve 9220 doesn't hold a candle to cheap Android devices that are now proliferating and which offer features like 3G, GPS and mobile hotspot at a lesser price. So, if you're considering the 9220 for your first smartphone, only look here if all your friends have BBM and thus you have to go for a BlackBerry because of peer pressure. The other reason could be if you type a fair bit and touchscreen phones are the equivalent of smartphone hell for you.
Simple, attractive and classy low weight phone
The BlackBerry Curve 9220 is a stylish phone in slim design and glossy body. The BBM services as always are at its best. Instant Messaging, BlackBerry App world and many such applications do justice to this new Curve series phone. But its weak camera and functionalities with slow 512 MB RAM come in its way to claim clear lead over other competing phones. So, we give this phone three star rating.
BB OS 7.1, Good battery life
This is the phone for you if you want the latest BlackBerry OS 7 experience on a budget. While the Curve 8520 should cost you between Rs. 7,500 and 7,900 (depending on your bargaining skills), it's not worth the ~2.5K savings because of the sluggishness caused by lack of memory and the older, dated OS. If the only reason you want a BlackBerry is to get on BBM, and you don't plan on using any apps at all, the 8520 might actually suffice for you.

The Palm Pre Plus has some quirks--the cramped keyboard and slow software in particular--but it makes a good iPhone alternative on AT&T.

Last year, Palm turned CES upside down with the Palm Pre – one of the few new smartphones to make the iPhone look dated. After a slow-but-auspicious launch over the summer, Palm returned to CES this year with a much less earth-shattering pair of refreshes: the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus. Besides migrating to Verizon, the Pre Plus brings a handful of modest updates, including a handful of exterior tweaks, more memory, and doubling storage from 8GB to 16GB.
