Is the Blackberry Curve 9300 any good?

Has anyone got any experience with the Blackberry Curve 9300?
I've got the opportunity to pick one up cheaply, so any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks, guys.

    I had an older curve with the track ball and I now have one of these for my work phone. We are testing iPhone 4, Android and the newer torch for use with our email system. I dont do much personal based functions with this phone (Facebook, Web, SMS etc) but for email integration with exchange it is still hands down the best of all listed above phones. The slide out keyboard on the torch is nice but even with my thin fingers it was a little dodgy. The phone takes ok pictures and is expandable. The battery life is alot worse than the previous curve I had but it is still better than an Android or iPhone 4.

    Have you played with blackberries before? Because the interface is built for functionality and not beauty. I personally love my blackberry for my work phone and passed on a 3gs to keep it. But for a personal phone.... I dont think I would use one. I would stay with my Android.

    I have an older blackberry (8330) and it makes me hate myself. I have just been convinced (by members of this forum, woot) to upgrade right now instead of waiting.

    That being said, the 9300 is supposed to be way, way, way better than my 8330. Typically blackberries arent the greatest devices for personal use. Something like an iphone or an android device would probably be best for most people looking for social networking/gaming/pic-taking/all-in-one devicy-ing. If you're getting a good deal on it then its not like it will kill you or anything.

    But, keep in mind that if you really want that EVO and settle for the 9300 to save a few bucks, you'll probably be pretty disappointed.
