RIM BlackBerry 8800

  • Conclusion: A tremendously effective messaging phone, the 8800 adds a trackball and music player to the traditional Blackberry form factor. But the lack of 3G high-speed wireless will be an issue for Web surfers and laptop modem users.
  • Pros: First Blackberry with full keyboard, music player and trackball. Built-in GPS. Blackberry e-mail is still unmatched in ease of use and flexibility of merging many accounts.
  • Cons: No 3G. No stereo Bluetooth.

  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Pearl may have been the first to have a sexy, modern look; but for the very large full-QWERTY BlackBerry user base, the BlackBerry 8800 is the first hard core BlackBerry with the new look.
  • Pros: Sleek, modern design that will turn heads. The device is light by BlackBerry and smartphone standards. You get the great push email experience with attachments, filter and searching functions. You also get a good set of software including messaging (IM included), PIM and desktop syncing. Longer b...
  • Cons: We wish it had 3G support. With Bluetooth v2.0 implementation it begs for more profiles such as A2DP for playing music via stereo headsets, DUN and file transfer to and from desktop machines.

BlackBerry 8800 Review

LAPTOP Magazine

  • Excerpt: If the Pearl is the sleek sports car of BlackBerrys, then the new 8800 from Cingular ($299 with two-year contract) is the Escalade in the line, a beefier model complete with a full-sized keyboard and bigger display.

  • Excerpt: BlackBerry is synonymous with Push Email. It’s only been just a little while since we’ve had the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 and we know what that can do. So the company has decided to bring us yet another communication marvel and lo!

  • Pros: Great keyboard, Excellent display, Long lasting battery
  • Cons: Lacks 3G, No Wi-Fi, User interface could be improved

IT PRO
9 March 2007
  • Summary: Somehow the 8800 doesn't have the visceral desirability of the Pearl and it doesn't have WiFi or 3G. But with GPS and a QWERTY keyboard it's undoubtedly a more capable business device, especially if you want a BlackBerry with a full keyboard.
