"Blackberry is not all it's Cracked up to be"

The good: Long battery life The bad: Little awkward to hold. No real support. Media files are almost impossible to download. Bluetooth transfers from other media are impossible. Summary: If you like to add your own ringtones, forget it.If you like the ability to transfer your own music to your cell phone, but expect to find it or even consider listening to it, forget it. It is possible to store your music on your phone, but unless you are hooked up to a computer, listening to the device is... more...

Noah's BlackBerry 8800 review


Introduction Legions of BlackBerry addicts have long traded style for functionality.  BlackBerry devices were never at the top of anyone’s “Best Dressed Phones” list, and the BlackBerry OS looked positively archaic next to state-of-the-art phone platforms like Symbian and Sony Ericsson’s Walkman series.  RIM took a big step towards changing all of that with their latest batch of handsets.  Slimmer, sexier, and sporting an interface often likened to Apple’s legendary Mac OS,... more...

Features The Blackberry 8800 has an extensive list of features. The 8800 has built in GPS, Push to Talk, media player, document viewer, EDGE and Bluetooth 2.0. The built in GPS is a disappointment for some because of the fact that you have to pay for the service monthly. For Cingular , RIM has removed the Blackberry Maps application and included the TeleNav service for $9.99 a month. In Canada, Rogers has released the 8800 with Blackberry maps but you still need to pay for the data... more...

Display The display on the 8800 is excellent. The phone’s display is QVGA and has a 320 x 240 pixel resolution. The display is fairly bright and is controlled automatically by a built in sensor. You can also toggle through the different brightness levels by pressing the power button located at the top. You can also set the brightness level manually in the phone’s settings.  Audio The 8800 is excellent for listening to music. The phone comes equipped with 2.5mm stereo headphones... more...

Messaging The 8800 is great for messaging due to the full QWERTY keyboard. Each key has a raised edge which makes it easier to type with but overall the keys are still really cramped together. The QWERTY keyboard on the 8700 is much better in my opinion because it is easier to type with. I think RIM was more concerned about the looks instead of the actual function. On Windows mobile phones when you press the alt key twice the alt lock is enabled. This is not the case on the 8800.... more...

Conclusion The 8800 comes with the following: Box and manuals Charger USB cable Blackberry software Stereo headphones Battery OEM carrying case Overall I liked the Blackberry 8800 a lot. The fact that RIM has included many features like GPS is also a big advantage. If you’re planning to buy a GPS device, paying only $9.99 a month is a bargain. The 8800’s interface is exactly like the Pearl 8100 . The only thing that has changed in my opinion is the... more...
