Best Blackberry 2012
In best Blackberry 2012 we are going to review the newest best Blackberry, as well as a few older cheaper versions.
Technology wise Blackberries are great, but they can be a little pricey. If you get a Blackberry with your mobile contract it can be a much better deal. Check out Amazon’s Wireless store:
|BlackBerry Bold 9700 – Smartphone – 3G – WCDMA (UMTS) / GSM – QWERTY – BlackBerry OS – black
Amazon Price: $274.99
List Price: $999.99
The BlackBerry ‘Bold 9700′ is a sleeker version of it’s predecessor. The previous BB was wider and more chunky. The ‘Bold 9700′ is sleeker sexier device, but it maintains the same functionality. The phone is also lighter than the previous version. Another major change is the inclusion of a trackpad, instead of the trackball. The trackpad is very responsive and easy to use. It’s sensitivity can even be adjusted, to suit individual needs. The keyboard is not as spacious as the earlier versions, a side effect of making the phone more compact. The raised edges of individual keys assist in typing.
In addition the camera was also upgraded to 3.2 MP. This allows for much better quality photos, even in poor lighting conditions. Another improvement is the quality of speakers. In addition the phone uses ‘Noise Suppression’ technology, for a better sound quality. The attachment viewer opens different format files like MS Office, jpeg, pdf etc. Editing of files is included in the basic software. However creating documents is only possible after a software purchase.
BlackBerry Bold 9700 offers a complete package for professionals on the move.
|BlackBerry 8520 Unlocked Phone with 2 MP Camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi–International Version with No Warranty (Black)
Amazon Price: $184.51
List Price: $399.99
This is a ‘lighter’ version of the more high flying BlackBerry phones. The screen has a resolution of 320×240 pixel which results in images with some pixelation. This phone also lacks GPS and 3G support. However these exclusions pale in comparison to it’s solid performance on core features.
The design of the phone is a perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics. The phone’s menus are also easy to navigate thanks to the trackpad. The keyboard ease of use is made possible through individual key design. Emails are the main form of communication. The phone also has the standard edition for DataViz’s ‘Documents to Go’ suite. This enables the user to edit documents. The phone also comes with a variety of instant messaging clients.
The speakers offer great sound quality. There is almost no noise or distortion. Other features include a 2 MP camera with video recording functionality. However all multimedia files should be stored on the ’2 GB’ data storage disk provided. The enhanced storage space is not for applications though. Thus they are limited to the main memory of 256 MB. This restriction should be taken into consideration when, installing new applications.
The strong core features offered by the BlackBerry 8520 make it a sensible choice.

Amazon Price: $174.99
List Price: $415.00
BlackBerry Curve 8900
This phone is the ‘thinnest’, but not the smallest BlackBerry yet. It is also the lightest which make the handling a lot easier. If you have large fingers and find the other blackberries hard to use, this is the one for you.
The phone has a smaller screen size due to the design. The resolution of the screen and clarity of image on display renders the size issue irrelevant.
The ‘Javeline’ is an EDGE/Wi-Fi device which, means that it does not have 3G support. The 3G technology allows for email connectivity, while mobile connection is in use. However while using Wi-Fi, the phone and emails can be worked on simultaneously as well.
The usual accompaniments are also included, in this sleek package. These are the different connectivity tools like Bluetooth, USB etc. A 3.2 MP camera is also part of the device. Also there are the productivity tools like, document viewers and editors. A full HTML web browser, also enhances the phone’s functionality.
The design and functionality combine to make ‘Javeline’ one of the top smart phones on offer.
BlackBerry Pearl 8100
The BlackBerry ‘Pearl’ offers the smart phone functionality at a much lower price.
If you look at the Pearl’s keyboard it’s like that of a normal mobile phone, not a full keyboard like with the other Blackberry phones.
The ‘non-bulky’ design, is appealing and easy to handle. The phone features strong web browsing and email functions. It is an EDGE support phone and lacks the 3G and GPS features of the newer versions. Despite this the phone allows you to keep in touch and remain updated. It does have USB and Bluetooth capabilities, allowing for better connectivity.
The phone also has strong multimedia features like, music and video players. The expandable memory allows for more storage capacity. The device also includes a 1.3 MP camera.
‘Pearl’ is not as advanced, as some of it’s more recent competitors. It is however a very strong smart phone at a lower price. This makes it ideal for more cost-driven consumers.
