BlackBerry 8700g

 

For a while there it looked as though push email would be shoved off the mobile map. But now Research in Motion (RIM) the company behind the Blackberry has reached a $612.5 million settlement with software company NTP it looks as though the millions of...

Great screen, excellent keyboard and easy to use service

It’s a big beast, so surely there’s room for a camera and a memory expansion slot

Without doubt the 8700g is the best BlackBerry to date, but the really good news is that the service is here to stay.

T-Mobile BlackBerry 8700

 

If you absolutely, positively MUST have your email on the move, you want one of these.

So, I’ve established that the BlackBerry push email client is superb, but the other half of the equation is the hardware that it runs on. What I’m looking at here is the BlackBerry 8700, which is the successor to the hugely popular 7290. Although the...

Blackberry 8700 review

 

If mobile email is your priority, you can't beat the Blackberry

The best for email-on-the-go – but not much cop at anything else

Blackberry 8700g

 

If you need mobile email, Blackberry is still the obvious choice. This latest version of the classic has a better screen and all the strengths we expect.

BlackBerry 8700

 

This is a very good BlackBerry that will please fans of the mobile e-mail device. It's not a Windows or Palm-killer, though.

It's hard to imagine life before the BlackBerry. Well, maybe that's exaggerating. But it's certainly true we depend on pocket-sized devices that fulfi...

Strong e-mail and browser features, helpful memo lists and the ; speakerphone function

None to speak of

This is a solid business communications tool with a lot of key features.

RIM Blackberry 8700G Smart Phone

 

The BlackBerry 8700g, the latest addition to RIM's 8700 series of PDA/phones, adds more of a consumer flavor to BlackBerry's notoriously business-geared devices. To the BlackBerry's already stellar messaging capabilities, it adds support for consumer...

Excellent e-mail and messaging device Adds support for consumer IM networks

Lacks a camera

Overall, the 8700g is an impressive e-mail device, but it seems caught between its roles as a powerful enterprise tool and a handy consumer gadget. As a business tool, the 8700g could benefit from more office apps, and if RIM really wants to target...

The 8700g is more consumer-friendly than other BlackBerry devices, but it still lacks a camera.

RIM BlackBerry 8700g

 

The BlackBerry 8700g is delicious for e-mail and instant messaging.

Bright color screen. Fast and responsive. Excellent e-mail and IM flexibility.

No voice dialing. Can't use it as a laptop modem.
