Excerpt: Worst part is that there is no 3G facility available in this mobile. The user interface and operting system are quite old. This being because of the immense pace at which every new mobile is being launched in the market with newer and powerful technologies. It doesn't even provide you with a good set of apps. I have hated it since i bought it...
Excerpt: If you are a fan of blackberry and you can't stretch your budget then only buy it, else don't go in for it. Phone has nothing much to offer. Operating system often crashes. Plastic quality feels cheap on touching. Leave this phone.
Excerpt: A very average phone. Only the blackberry messenger is the part that is worth a mention. Not so great battery life either. As is the case with almost every BB, this too gets hung pretty frequently. bad camera quality and very moderate speakers. Screen size is also too small.
Excerpt: Looks wise it is quite slim, stylish and trendy but when it comes to performance, it fares not that good. It is basically an old technology for present times. Speed wise also it is very bad and ocassionaly hangs. There is no 3G facility available in this mobile. It does come in many colours like black, fuchsia pink, pure white and teal blue. There are alot many better options available in the market at this price range.
Excerpt: The phone looks good and is stylish, but when you start using it, the experience is not that great. The features are old and the phone is not very speedy. Occasional crashes make it even worse. The battery life is good, thanks to the marked improvement in the battery pieces. The media functions are impressive, but it could have been better. The phone is neither good nor bad. So, prepare to get mixed reactions from this one.
Summary: For regular users of BB, this is another typical BB. For non users of BB, please understand this phone is different than your regular phones and needs getting adjusting to. It has its own idiosyncracies like not syncing your sent mails with the IMAP sent folders. For those of you who are buying this phone for the digital compass, there isnt one on this phone (inspite of every site claiming it).
No accessories for this phone available yet arghh!!!

Summary: I bought this phone in April soon after its launch. I have tried many places but found no cases or skins to protect this phone. Also the screen guards aren't available as yet. Disappointing!!! Otherwise, the phone is pretty good - good battery, FM, navigation downside - Why couldn't BB provide a decent camera for this price is a mystery.
