More goods on the BlackBerry 8300/Curve from “RogersDude69″. This time, it’s about the new music player.
The first thing you’ll notice about the 8300’s media player is the interface improvements over its Pearl/8800 counterparts. First off, it no longer looks like a Windows 3.1 File Manager tree, but something you could see on an iPod or other type of music player. The functionality has also greatly increased, allowing you to view all songs alphabetically, or by artist, album and genre. You also can now shuffle you song list and have a search field to find specific songs/bands. There are still no EQ options, but honestly, that might be too much to expect from a BlackBerry that only features music as a secondary function.
I can’t stress enough how important the 3.5 mm headphone jack is. I originally had gotten a Pearl through Rogers, but eventually got rid of it because I really wanted to use it as a music player, and the lack of support for a standard headphone jack was brutal. Now, with true headphone and MicroSD support, you really don’t need to be carrying around an iPod anymore.
