The best and worst of BlackBerry App World

We strolled through the virtual aisles of Research in Motion's fledging application marketplace and found five great titles -- and as many clunkers.

Worst: Bright Smile



Are you worried enough about your dental hygiene habits to pay $5 for an app that merely dispenses advice on how to care for your teeth--brushing techniques and the like--and provides a customizable timer to help you devote the proper amount of time to your brushing? I'm all for using technology to improve health care, but this app seems oddly paired with the BlackBerry, since it utilizes only the stopwatch function of the device. Bright Smile also takes up half a megabyte of memory, which seems like a lot for what it does.

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.
