RIM BlackBerry 7230

 

The RIM BlackBerry 7230 ($399.99), from T-Mobile USA, is a fairly small and sleek-looking device dedicated to mobile mail: E-mail meets the pager. Its menus are very easy to navigate, thanks partly to the color screen, and the keyboard layout—the best...

RIM BlackBerry 7230 (T-Mobile)

 

Some jokingly refer to the 7230 as a BlueBerry rather than a BlackBerry because of its blue casing. A bit shorter and thicker (4.4 by 2.9 by 0.94 inches) than RIM's stalwart 957, the unit is compact for a smart phone; male buyers will probably wear it...

Compact; color screen; nice built-in keyboard; real-time e-mail; Web browser; Java support (J2ME); compact travel charger and syncing cable; decent battery life.

Lacks speakerphone and memory-expansion slot.

So long as you have decent T-Mobile coverage in your area, the BlackBerry 7230 makes an excellent smart phone.

RIM BlackBerry 7230

 

The convergence between email/Outlook/phone is a great feature. However, just looking at cell phone features, it has to be in the bottom 10% of all cell phones produced in the last 5-10 years, and is certainly the worst I have ever used. Extremely...

RIM Blackberry 7230

 

If you want to do email on the move, then you should consider the Blackberry. If its niche image has put you off in the past, think again, because it is now a sensible multi-purpose gadget, with a very usable phone and web browser. The screen may look...
