It's remarkable. The more devices we acquire to keep us in touch with the world around us, the less we actually communicate with each other. How many times have you seen two people sitting in a pub, both industriously typing on their phones, PDAs or laptops, and utterly ignoring the person...

It was time for an upgrade from my old mobile phone to a new one, and I spent a whole month trying to decide which new phone to buy. I soon narrowed it down to a BlackBerry Bold 9000 and the Nokia E71 - both, I was told, are "fantastic phones", and after having a play with the BlackBerry Bold and...

“The Bold and the Beautiful”

published 06/10/2008

ProGreat looking, very easy to use

ConsPoor Battery

After recently getting the Blackberry Bold I thought I'd share my thoughts about it. Traditionally a Blackberry is known for being solely aimed at the business market with one of its main selling points being the fact that you have constant email access which is of course very important for some...

What did we do before the blackberry? Today we can take for granted the ability to send an e-mail from this small handheld device that fits in your pocket? It’s crazy! To me the blackberry bold is the first real step blackberry have made to corner the consumer handphone market and is without a...

The Blackberry has evolved in society and has become an icon of business, and a regular sight and sound on train and tube journeys in and around London. Business men take advantage of its almost flawless e-mail feature, which allows them to send and receive e-mail on the move. I am not a business...

The Black berry 9000 is slightly wider than most phones but as you can imagine it has lots of data to store, the package set up through vodafone was a very good deal £35 per month which included a free Blackberry, unlimited texts, 500 minutes, and unlimited access to the internet/facebook. The phone is quite hard to understand initially and if the shop you get the phone from does not set you up properly you may spend days wondering why you can not access the internet. The phone also often resets itself for security purposes im told which can become a pain and there will be a message on the screen with error reseting. I recommend you read through the instructions carefully and once you know what you are doing you will love the phone.
