Good: keypad is amazing! its so nice and easy might take a few hours to get used to
Bad: it took some time to update it to 4.5 os and was abit tricky
Comment: I like this phone, the only thing is its a little slow and dosnt have much memory. its VERY slow and dosnt have much to make it stand out.
Good: Qwerty, crystal clear screen, every app you need, comes with world maps...
Bad: No GPS
Comment: I love this BB. Having had numerous BB's over the years, for work, this one is the best so far....
Sexy looking, so easy to use, has everthing you need, loads and views everything. It really does view any attachment i receive.
Clear sounds, the clearest screen I have seen on any handheld and a very easy to use multimedia package. I can transfer all my music and clips over at the click of a button.
I would recommend to anyone who needs a phone and email on the move.
Good: Good sized Qwerty keyboard, easy to snap and email pictures, great media player.
Comment: I've been waiting for this for soooo long - a BlackBerry with a decent camera, media player, and full QWERTY! I got mine a couple of weeks back from an O2 store, and it's fantastic! The screen is large, bright and plays video clips straight from YouTube. It's good enough to view most email attachments I get sent from work, including Excel and PowerPoint, and can load most sites I've tried to browse.
The media player is a bit restricted on the formats it plays, and I've had to buy a £10 piece of convertor software. Battery is good, but I was a bit disappointed with no in-built GPS. I have a separate TomTom unit already so I probably wouldn't have used it much.
There still doesn't seem to be anything simpler for emailing than a BlackBerry, although the new Microsoft Xdas seem pretty cool.
