BlackBerry 8800

MobileTechReview.com
25 March 2007
  • 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.

CNET
20 March 2007
  • Summary: If you're a BlackBerry veteran, the 8800 will pleasantly surprise you with its slim and stylish design, fast navigation trackball and GPS receiver, and as always the email functionality works well. We wish RIM had included 3G or Wi-Fi connectivity, though
  • Pros: Trackball; easy email setup; expandable microSD slot; GPS receiver.
  • Cons: BlackBerry mapping software when used with the GPS functionality; Qwerty keypad is a little small to type on quickly; lack of 3G or Wi-Fi connectivity.

BlackBerry 8800 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
9 February 2007
  • 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.

Mobile Choice UK

  • Summary: The glossy black, silver edged BlackBerry 8800 is certainly a fashionable take on the business device. It's quite cumbersome but then it accommodates a large screen and a QWERTY keyboard.
  • Pros: It looks great, email is easy to set up, and it is very user friendly.
  • Cons: There is no 3G, Wi-Fi or camera.

BlackBerry 8800 review

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.

  • Conclusion: This might be the best looking BlackBerry to date, and at its core job it works a treat, however RIM are missing quite a few tricks here. We can forgive the lack of a camera - after all this is designed for business users, however the lack 3G, HSDPA or Wi-Fi support is shocking compared to the...

  • Cons: No Wi-Fi, no 3G, no camera, GPS software not great

5 December 2007
  • Conclusion: Il BlackBerry 8800 è un ottimo prodotto per l’utente business che desidera essere sempre operativo, anche fuori dall’ufficio, senza rinunciare a nulla. Presenta tutte le funzioni necessarie e non, come il lettore multimediale e il GPS, mentre manca la fotocamera.
  • Pros: Sistema di cancellazione dei rumori di fondo; Ottima durata della batteria; Spessore
  • Cons: Listino operatore; Dimensioni non ridotte in complesso; Solo 65 mila colori visualizzati
