Top Blackberry smartphones

We roundup the best BlackBerry smartphones on the market

BlackBerry smartphones, manufactured by Canadian company Research in Motion (RIM) have a rich history in delivering excellent e-mail capabilities. Previously considered purely business or corporate devices, the latest range of Blackberry smartphones attempt to appeal to regular consumers, headed by the flagship BlackBerry Torch 9800, which combines a full QWERTY keyboard with a touch screen.

We roundup the best BlackBerry smartphones currently available in Australia.

RIM BlackBerry Pearl 3G

We were impressed that RIM's BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100 offers the same capabilities and functions found on more expensive BlackBerry smartphones. The trade off comes in the form of a smaller, pocketable form factor, resulting in a cramped keyboard, small display and flimsy build quality.

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.
