Summary: Before i get into the Summary of this Phone, i want to share a story, recently my mom recently bought a unlocked BB Pearl 3G, however, after 3 months with it the phone died in an unforunate car accident...once my mom got over the physcal and emotional trauma, she obviously need a new phone however, she on her own preference refused any touchscreen device, she wanted a new blackberry,but after 5 minutes with a BB Curve she dissmissed it. She did the BB Bold 9700 but the store didn't have any more BB Bold 9700's. Then i read about this phone online, and placed a call at my local T-Mobile, and asked to be called when the had the device ready, i got a call within one week. I went all the way to store with a intent of buying the device as a gift, but then turned ice cold at the thought that my mom would turn it down, so i took her to the store and she fell in love, needless to say i bought her the device.
ACTUAL SUMMARY: After a few days with the device(i borrowed it when my G2 was in the repair shop) i absolutely love the deice, The only qualm many people had with Blackberries was the web browser, and Blackberry resolved that with the new webkit based broswer. but moving past all the "New Device" hype if you already have a blackberry model that is upgradeable to BB OS 6, then there is no real reason, for you to uprade, however if you have just resurfaced from 2-year contract wolrd and are looking for a new phone, i strongly suggest you check out this phone as a potential device, why simply because this device not offeres all the good about a blackberry without much of the bad.
Over the days i have used it texting emailing,syncing with my email accounts,web broswing, getting directions, nearly everything you would use in a modern smartphone are easy to use, plus blackberry's new os is easier to use,and even the BB APP store is starting to pick up, and i found quite a bit of worthwhile applictions. The Bottom Line is : Great Hardware, Great Software, Great Keyboard,Great Camera,Great screen, Decent App Selection, all make this a amazing Phone for new BB users, or old BB users who are upgrading thier phone. And as much as i try i can't think of a single con that is a deal breaker or a reason not to buy this phone.
Great Work Blackberry.
