The BlackBerry: for email addicts

Posted: July 18, 2010 in Technology

Research in Motion’s (NASDAQ: RIMMNews) BlackBerry, which often hooks users with its instant email, has its own set of features. Foremost is that “push” email function, which feeds messages instantly instead of checking in with a server every 15 minutes or so. It’s a hot phone with business executives, and Gikas said information-technology managers love them for their security features.

Strengths: In addition to its “push” feature, BlackBerry’s email capabilities include linking several accounts to one master inbox, so users don’t have to check multiple sources. BlackBerry users can choose from dozens of small and large carriers including AT&T, Verizon, Cellular One and T-Mobile. If you like using your thumbs to text, most Blackberry models have a physical QWERTY keyboard ideal for thumbing. BlackBerry also has two touch-screen models.

Drawbacks: Some reviewers say the BlackBerry models are clumsy with video streaming and slower with Internet use. The models that do have a camera don’t offer much in the way of megapixels. For example, the BlackBerry Curve, one of the most recent models, has a camera with only 2 mega pixels. Finally, for those who prefer smaller phones, most of the BlackBerry models, which average 4.3 inches high and 2.4 inches wide, may be too large.
