What Is A Blackberry all about - and do we need it?
Blackberry is the newest, and now the most popular, wave in personal
organizer technology. Boasting the best email program available,
Blackberry provides all the basic PDA features, a phone, and on the go
email and internet service.
How blackberry compares to phones and personal organizers
For the most part, there is little consensus in Blackberry reviews.
Some argue the gadget is overpriced and offers inadequate features in
regards to the mobile phone and personal organizer. However, others
live by the device and will use no other. Similar to the Windows/
Macintosh war, it seems some people are just happier with one or the
other. Either way, the mobile phone and personal organizer features
seem to be adequate, even if only just so. Fortunately, it would seem
the major complaints about the phone and organizer have been addressed
in the newer models of the device. What does seem to be the consensus
is that these features are secondary to the real purpose of Blackberry
– the email.
Pros of Blackberry
The most advantageous feature of the blackberry is its email
capabilities. Even in the early models, email on the go was the most
fine-tuned characteristic and that which was sought after the most. As
time has gone on, other areas of the device have also been developed
to create an all-around capable product.
Cons of Blackberry
In the earlier Blackberry models, the mobile phones were horrible!
Although this has been remedied to some extent, some still complain of
poor audio quality and the uncomfortable design of the device when
used as a mobile phone. The small screen on some of the models has
also been criticized. It does little good to have browsing and email
capabilities when you can not read what is on the screen!
How to choose which model is best for you
In the quest for the perfect Blackberry, it is a good idea to have
some clue what you are looking for. Obviously, the email capability is
important or you probably would not be looking at a Blackberry in the
first place. What other features are you looking for? While most
models now come with mobile phone features, some are primarily a
phone, meaning they are more traditionally shaped, thinner, and
provide more comfort when held to the ear. On the other hand, some
retain the “calculator” square shape which is less comfortable. If you
plan to use the phone feature a lot, perhaps a phone model would be
better suited to you.
Likewise, the devices that are shaped more like a mobile phone lose a
considerable amount of space in regards to the keyboard and screen
size. So, if typing, email, and browsing are a primary focus, a square
version may be better.
There are even versions on the market that come equipped with GPS and
digital walkie-talkie capabilities. For an outdoorsman, or for someone
who just gets lost a lot, these features could be valuable. However,
these features are not as common as the more traditional PDA features.
Size is also an issue. You can go with the smaller phone versions,
have a more comfortable fit in your pocket, and forego a little screen
size and keyboard capabilities. On the other hand, a larger screen and
keyboard means you may prefer to carry the device in a case instead of
your pocket. Bulkiness and weight are considerations to keep in mind,
as each model varies.
There are also more minor factors to consider when choosing a
Blackberry, such as ringtone availability, speakerphone capability,
and battery life. Battery life varies greatly from one device to the
next, ranging from hours to several days. If you need a long battery
life, keep this in mind. Likewise, some models do not come with a
speakerphone, which is a major thing for some people. Be sure to check
these other features when choosing which Blackberry to go with.
A Blackberry is an incredibly convenient gadget to utilize. It is
important, however, to take prudence when choosing the device so it
meets all of your needs. The last thing you need is another expensive
collector of dust on your nightstand.
