T-mobile’s Blackberry Curve 8310

December 10, 2007

Today I received the Blackberry Curve 8310 for T-mobile at my office.  I am very excited to use and play with this phone.  A huge step up from my T-mobile MDA.T-mobile MDA

The T-mobile MDA was a nice phone that ran Windows Mobile.  It’s open close function was tight and did not slide open as nice as the newer phones do.  I was unable to download ringtones and it was close to impossible to sync it up to my pc.  Every time I connected the phone to the pc, I would get an error message that my phone was not able to support the data.

Also, as I wrote about previously, T-mobile cannot access Facebook.  Which for me is a huge disadvantage.    The only updating I did from my MDA was for My Twitter.

The Blackberry Curve 8310 includes GPS (which if anyone knows me personally, knows I have a horrible sense of direction), which should come in handy. It also has signature Blackberry e-mail, web browsing, and Faceberry.

I am looking for great review sites, and help sites for the Blackberry Curve.  If anybody can direct me to them I would greatly appreciate it.

NYC & Co. is basically in charge of the tourism market in New York City. In recent news, NYC & Co. is planning to change New York’s slogan from “I ❤ NY” to “This is New York”. I am unsure how I feel about this change, but I am sure the numbers will talk for themselves. It is a fact that every New Yorker saves $908.00 per year due to the tax dollars that tourists bring in, so this is not a market that we want to miss out on. Of course there is the argument that the appeal of visiting NYC will never fade, but there is always room for improvement.

Working for the New York City Pocket & Travel Guides, I am constantly sent to events hosted by NYC & Co. Last night’s Business Card Exchange was hosted in Harlem’s Terrace in the Sky. It is really exciting to be able to do my job in the classiest venues, drinking fine wine. I love shaking hands and mingling with the big shots at the top New York City business. Everything is about networking.

At the event I met a lot of potential clients. We spoke about advertising, internet marketing & the view of the skyline from the deck. I learned a few things from the people I spoke to. First of all, nobody had any idea how important SMM (Social Media Marketing) is and they have no plans of learning about it. These are the Marketing Managers of huge New York City companies and they have no idea where the marketing industry is going. I even met a man who didn’t like e-mailing people. Secondly, two men in the course of the night referred to woman as “pains in the ass”.

Currently I am reading reviews on the Blackberry Curve. What a beauty!

If anyone has it, please contact me and let me know what you think of it.Curve
