"Heavy, awkward, not intuitive"

janefinch, CNET

  • Pros: Synchronizes with business Microsoft-related products; better touchscreen than the loathed Blackberry Storm
  • Cons: Too small, very heavy for the size, few apps (same problem with the Blackberry Storm series), not great keyboard, on-off button too small, closing apps requires a "help" screen to figure out.

  • Pros: Nice portable size, fast OS, high quality cameras, and great battery life. It also has the best mobile browsing experience of any tablet or smartphone. I also like the BB Bridge functionality.
  • Cons: Got apps? No Foursquare, Google Mobile Apps, Kindle, LinkedIn, Netflix, Nook, Twitter, VEVO, etc. Also missing the standard IM/ video chat clients, AIM, MSN, Skype, Yahoo!, etc. Needs an RDP client too. Lastly, the keyboard needs improvement.

"Using it right now..."

llamos, CNET
29 April 2011
  • Pros: I love the size, that it tethers to my Blackberry, the browser speed and the screen clarity.
  • Cons: Needs the track button Blackberry perfected on its most recent smartphones. Does not have some of the speed text functions Blackberry users are accustomed to (double space gets you a "." and capitalization).
