  • Conclusion: Research in Motion have again evolved the BlackBerry. There's no denying that this is a better BlackBerry than yesterday's, even with the dreadful construction quality. I'm going to assume that the next BlackBerry will rectify that backward step.

T-Mobile BlackBerry 8700g

CNET
6 April 2006
  • Summary: This is a serious business phone, but don't let that scare you away. It's very useful if you need to view emails on the go, but beware of the small keyboard -- it might make the keenest of emailers scream with frustration
  • Pros: Clearest, sharpest screen we've seen on a BlackBerry so far; new Intel processor makes applications open much faster.
  • Cons: Qwerty keyboard is too cramped and flat to be genuinely useful -- typing was tedious.
