Pros It checks email. We got them cheap. It doesn't crash much
Cons The phone features are absolutely horrible and the ergonomics are bad as well. it takes over 5 seconds to grab a number from my SIM card (who wants to sort through over 1000 contacts when you've got the important numbers on the SIM). The escape button is
Pros The real-time email is a major plus, and it's why I bought the device in the first place. Also, the ergonomic design with the click-wheel is very well thought out.
Cons The above pros notwithstanding, this product is poor enough that if there were any competitor products out there, I would immediately switch. Luckily for RIM, the iPaq's are even worse than the Blackberries. Where do I begin? 1. In possibly the worst pro
Pros email anywhere, built tough, scroll wheel

Cons Plenty! RIM is not paying attention to details. I emailed them and they are saying new products are coming out in 04. I am hoping those will correct the cons of my 7230. Comes with an IR port but it is not being used by the OS. What is that??? No blueto
Pros easy to use, email, web surfing good
Cons backlight could be brighter, can't here rings, no speaker phone
Summary overall great unit for all around best phone i've had so far
