Cam looks back at one of the oldest BlackBerrys around. The BlackBerry 7230 encapsulates everything that's great about BlackBerry. It feels good in the hand, it's light, it has a fantastic keyboard and an efficient and reliable operating system.  

The 7230 also has all the security features that BlackBerry has always been known for as well as instant push email. As soon as an email hits your inbox, it hits your phone with little to no delay thanks to the back-end server system. Sure, it meant adding an extra monthly BIS fee to your plan costs, but it was worth it.
