First time BB user coming from iPhone, the Bold is a welcome change! It's an interesting unique phone that, in my books, goes above and beyond the iPhone in most respects (browser excluded). I'm a uni student and this phone completes my life xD

I am absolutely devestated that I purchased this phone. As a 20 year old student Ive always had a very basic pre paid phone, as Ive never been able to afford an expensive plan. I reluctantly decided to switch to a plan 7 months ago and opted for the BB smart phone (the sales guy in the 3 mobile told me it was a good choice). only a few weeks after purchasing this phone it started freezing and I had to continuously take out the battery and restart the phone. Just recently it started playing up (freezing and flicking applications eg. id be messging and it would automatically got to fb, and certain keys werent working) I returned it to the shop to be fixed, after 2 weeks with no phone it was returned to me unrerpaired as warranty does not cover THE APPARENT WATER DAMAGE THEY FOUND..TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE THE PHONE DID NOT COME IN CONTACT WITH WATER HOWEVER fine print gets blackberry out of repairing damages or replacing the phone if they can claim water damage (whether or not it is or isnt). DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE! if you do wrap it in cotton wool!....READ THE FINE PRINT! IPHONES OFFER BETTER DEALS

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
