BlackBerry’s are fast becoming an epidemic. There fantastic features have caused people all over the world to go buy them. BlackBerry has recently introduced a new phone, known as BlackBerry 9800.
The Hardware of the BlackBerry 9800 is not bad. It is a typical RIM. Very solid, and even though it is a bit heavy, it has a good feel to it. The sliding mechanism is good quality.
The software is an RIM. Even though there are new UI elements in OS 6, there are some problems. There is a certain choppiness in the web browser.
Another problem is that the phone hangs navigating between screens. At times it feels that the phone has too many features. The result is that it feels too claustrophobic at times.
The keyboard is one of the best features of the phone. It is perfect. It resembles the Bold 9700 in this aspect.
The internals of the phone have proved to be disappointing. The quality of the features seems to have decreased. Reactions haven’t been that good.
From the 624 MHz CPU to only 512 MB of RAM, to the 1300 mAh battery, the BlackBerry worries us. It feels as if the hardware has been pushed to its maximum. Ironically the phone hasn’t even been released as yet.
The screen of the BlackBerry is no good either. The screen’s dimensions are 480 by 380. The screen is supposed to be the focal point of the device. However, it seems to outdated for 2010.
While examining the BlackBerry Torch 9800, one faces mixed emotions. Some of its updated features are commendable and it is not bad looking either. But it could have been better.
When one examines all the phones BlackBerry has created over the years, the feeling is one of disappointment. The phone shall excel at specific functions. This mainly includes e-mail and any sort of text-based messaging.
Recently. BlackBerry has been making a niche for itself in the electronics market. It has been competing with the iPhone and Android mobiles. So far it has been doing great. However, sadly, it seems that the Torch 9800 is nothing special.
The Blackberry Torch 9800 Smartphone was introduced by Research in Motion (RIMM) to return to the cutting edges of smart phones. After every few months Google or Apple makes some improvements in their existing Smartphone which is impossible to keep up with them.
For years research in motion was strongest brand in Smartphone because of Blackberry. The early Blackberry phones were so common they were everywhere, there owners used to check their emails on the go. People were excited about having a Blackberry phone.
Then iPhone and Android were introduced and they had a variety of applications and touch screen which attracted people. You could edit movies, play piano and do other things on these phones. But Blackberry had its own advantages. Its signature keypad was easier to type as compared to touch screen keypad. Verizon offered two-for-the-price of one to attract customers.
Plummeting Market Share
But even after RIM’s share of U.S. Smartphone market fell from 28%. Verizon also sells Android phones, and Android’s share of the Smartphone market increased to 33%. Blackberry was then displaced as the best selling Smartphone and half of the owners of Blackberry wanted to switch to iphone or android. The other half people were either brand loyal to Blackberry or the business people preferred blackberry for email. Read More
If there was one app that all BlackBerry users wished for then that would be a good mobile VoIP client which lets you make and receive calls using Wi-Fi or 3G connections. It would be preffered if your client was made by Skype however, this isn’t the case. There haven’t been any mobile VoIP app’s for the BlackBerry. Instead, there are apps that use either callback or a local access number over the cellular networks. The other three major smartphone platforms, iPhone OS, Android and Symbian have multiple mobile VoIP applications, such as Nimbuzz and Truphone.
With the fact that we have with us it seem that Blackberry has been missing out on a huge party. This is because nearly 100 million users are expected to be using mobile VoIP by 2012, with over 471 billion calls likely to be made via mobile VoIP by 2015. Read More

The Blackberry came as a revolutionary smart phone for people who were constantly on the go and wanted to remain updated with their emails, businesses most of the time. The phone acts like a mini PC where there is email services, instant messenger clients and other tools that catered to the need of businessmen. However, it could not reach the main public, due to its professional nature. It had many disadvantages that had made the normal class public quite pessimist about its functionality. Some of the few disadvantages are elaborated here.
Not Suitable for all ages
Well, the phone is so professionally made, that majority of teenagers and normal working class people concluded that it was too expensive to pursue and secondly it did not offer anything different or fun filled for the mass users of mobile phones users today. People knew they could get better enriched phones that would have much more facilities under a lower cost and what would suit their age. The phone is not meant for use by regular people and does not match up with the age limit of using a Blackberry smart phone.
No FM Radio or Media Player
Yes this is true. Despite being a smart phone and that too quite an elegant and fancy one, it was expected to have a music system to entertain its users, however, it did not have that feature. The initial Blackberry released did not have these media facilities and thus users could not listen to music, which they could have otherwise heard in any common radio. This is a big draw back for music fans.
Bulky In Size
The Blackberry is quite bulky and heavy and doesn’t readily fit into a pair of jeans or a small sized purse, which makes it quite a trouble for its users to carry it around. Again more excellent smartphones have been released which are thin, slim and simply beautiful. The size seems to be a bit put off.
Unlike other mobiles which have silent cameras and video making quality, Blackberry doesn’t boast that. Each time a picture is taken a huge noise is heard and thus the machine looses its charm.
Small Size Screen
For a smartphone the screen is pretty small, considering that you would have to see videos from You tube, upload pictures or anything as such, but the problem is that the screen is stretched out horizontally and is quite small for it to be used as a full fledged viewing device. A small screen instead of a big one. That was a spoiler.
Despite all these advantages, business men still prefer to keep this device, whereas the common lot feels that having a Blackberry would not be advantageous and dropped off the idea of owning one when they knew that it could not have any other entertaining factors. There are hundreds of phones out there that provide excellent services under a very good rate.
There are now a lot of applications accessible for Blackberry. You can use them and get their features free of cost. There are some applications of Blackberry with which you can control and keep an eye on your personal money expenses. And also these applications allow you to share all the information you want to share with your family and friends.
When you are busy in your life, then it is not surprising that you will miss some important things which can make difference in your life, so to better keep track on your money related matters, it is recommended to use JadpLite BlackBerry as your personal money manager. It is a simple and really easy to use application, with which you can keep your budget in line with your needs and can keep an eye on its out flow.
