This is also a technical comparison, because while Samsung Exhibit 4G was already been launched, the Blackberry Torch 9850 is still preparing its release.
The dimensions are a little different, Blackberry measuring 120 x 62 x 11.5 mm and weighting 135 g, while Samsung measures 119 x 58 x 13 mm and weights 125 g. So, there is a little difference, Blackberry being a little heavier and at the same time bigger.
Regarding the display, besides the fact that Samsung's screen is AMOLED, Blackberry has a 3.7 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors with 480 x 800 pixels, while Samsung has a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors with 480 x 800 pixels. That takes us to the camera chapter, where Blackberry wins, with a 5 MP, 2592х1944 pixels, with autofocus compared to Samsung's 3.15 MP, 2048x1536 pixels, with LED flash.
Another difference is the CPU memory: Blackberry is equipped with a 1.2 GHz processor, wile Samsung has a 1 GHz processor. So in the end, I would choose Blackberry Torch 9850 instead of Samsung Exhibit 4G, but that is only me.
This is a initial and purely technical comparison between Blackberry Torch 9860 and LG Optimus Black P970.
Concerning the size, the 2 phones are approximately the same: Blackberry has 120 x 62 x 11.5 mm and weights 135 g, and LG has 122 x 64 x 9.2 mm and weights 109 g. Resulting that Blackberry is heavier and LG is bigger.Regarding the display, Blackberry is equipped with a 3,7 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors with 480 x 800 pixels, which is kind of weaker compared to the 4 inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors with 480 x 800 pixels that LG has.
The advantage for Blackberry is the internal memory, being equipped with a 4 GB storage with 768 MB RAM, which is bigger then LG's 2 GB storage (1 GB user-available) and 512 MB RAM. The rest of the features are approximately the same, except Blackberry looses ground in front of the 2 MP secondary camera that LG has , but recuperates with the 1.2 GH processor, because LG has only 1 GH.
The list can go on, but util Blackberry Torch 9860 will be available, the comparison with LG Optimus Black P970 is only a technical one.
First, both work, obviously with BlackBerry operating system.There are two smartphones with QWERTY keyboard and 2.46 inchTFT display with a resolution of 320x240 pixels.
There aren't any size differences , both have 60x109x14 mm, but Curve 8520 is two grams heavier than the heir (106, 104 grams). Battery life is 4 and a half hours talk time and 408 hours (Curve 8520) and 456 hours (Curve 3G 9300 -348 hours in 3G) in standby . The internal memory is 256MB (expandable up to 32GB with a microSD card), the camera has a resolution of 2MP, no flash. None of the models has a secondary camera for video calls. Both Curve 8520 and 3G 9300 have Bluetooth , GPRS, WiFi and no radio. The important difference is that 8520 hasn't 3G.
If in the case of Curve 8520 screen size is acceptable, we can say that we had more pretensions from 9300 3G.
The conclusion is that if you want a phone like Curve 8520, but with 3G and USB 2.0, then you can opt for Blackberry 3G 9300. But the price depends on the options.
As I was talking in the past, the BlackBerry Torch had a very big release, there are a lot of people who heard about it, even who ever had any RIM product but most of them are smartphone owners.
We all know that RIM made a very good job with this new phone. They made something unique that was never done before. Yes, I know there are a lot of other touchscreen smartphones with a full physical QWERTY keyboard too but all of those phones have the sliding keyboard at one side while at the BlackBerry Torch, the keyboard pops out from below.
I recommend you watching YouTube reviews and unboxing videos to make a better idea about this phone and to realize if it’s really worth it thinking about what you need from a smartphone and what does this phone actually “do”.
You can also read our little preview, just use the search box from the bottom right corner and see the articles where we talked about this phone.
If you want or if you really are at the moment a Vodafone or orange customer and you’re also an UK citizen, you can try to buy this phone from Phones 4U.
If you're a RIM fan, you probably already heard about the new tablet they launched. It's called the PlayBook and it's not just another tablet on the market, it stands out quite a lot and you'll see why. Honestly, I never thought that there will be an iPad competitor that will get so close to the iPad. If you ask me, the best iPad killer is the PlayBook.
I also never thought that people will be so excited about this tablet. I know this tablet is very important, much important than the new BlackBerry Torch and will probably be much important than the BlackBerry Storm 3 too because it brings something new in the tablet market and you'll see what specifically in the specs I added to the post below.
The tablet is only 7" wide and I honestly think that that's a little too low but thanks God it doesn't have the format of the Samsung's tablet because it would really look like a giant phone then. Anyway, they made it that big to be portable.
It also has a front facing camera which is very good aspect because you can make video chats like so. This became a must have on the tablets these days.
Unfortunately, the apps from the BlackBerrys doesn't work at all on the PlayBook but soon, there will be plenty of apps for it too.
Fortunately, it has another OS than the BlackBerry phones so they didn't take the Samsung's example of taking the Android OS which wasn't optimised for tablets on a tablet. The main reason of why so many people talk about this tablet and why it is so special is because it has a dual core 1GHz processor which is quite big for a tablet and never seen before on another tablet. You also get 1GB of RAM memory which should make this table real fast.
Now people expect from it to be the God of all tablets and I have to say that I've seen a lot of clips on youtube with it and if it isn't that good, at least it gets closer.
It has a 3MP front facing camera and a 5MP rear facing camera and it supports 1080p HD recording video. It also weights around a pound which is not too much, it's enough foor its sizes comparing to the other tablets I guess. Here are the full specifications of this tablet:
7-inch LCD, 1024 x 600, WSVGA, capacitive touch screen with full multi-touch and gesture support
BlackBerry Tablet OS with support for symmetric multiprocessing
1 GHz dual-core processor
1 GB RAM
Dual HD cameras (3 MP front facing, 5 MP rear facing), supports 1080p HD video recording
Video playback: 1080p HD Video, H.264, MPEG, DivX, WMV
Looking closely at the Blackberry Curve 9300, Phones 4U is one of the best third party mobile phone retailers out there, providing a huge range of networks and phone manufacturers for you to choose from. Not only that, but every week Phones 4U highlight one of their generous deals for you to view. Simply visit the Phones 4U homepage at www.phones4u.co.uk and look for the “Deal of the Week”. This week’s great value deal is on the BlackBerry Curve 9300, a highly enabled phone with a fully functional QWERTY keyboard.
Although originally BlackBerrys were thought of as business phones, they have spread like wildfire into the market for social networking. The QWERTY keyboard is perfect for typing out text messages, status updates and emails. The phone’s 3G and WiFi capability allows for seamless internet browsing, so you are never cut off from the social hub. The unique BlackBerry messenger allows you to instantly communicate with other BlackBerry phones.
The Blackberry Pearl 3G 9015 has been designed with user ergonomics in mind and is both compact in size and pocket friendly. This particular handset is suitable for business users as well as personal Smartphone users as it offers a variety of features to suit both parties.
On this very little review we want to look Blackberry Pearl in general, looking at it's best features and general comparison, so we can have a better understanding of the engineering surrounding RIM as we made with the preview of the Blackberry Pearl 3g 9100. The 3G 9105 supports high-speed technologies as well as 3G HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, the handset also houses a number of business applications such as an easy to use Internet browser, an impressive email service and many document viewing capabilities.
The handset is both stylish and neat in design and comes with a bevelled keypad that acts as a QWERTY keyboard and a bar form housing. Each key however also has multi function key options. The screen has a great quality display due to the phones high resolution and comes complete with the Blackberry Pearl operating system and 3G technologies.
Here we have another comparison between the BlackBerry products and you can also consider this a post saying the updates from the new BlackBerry Storm 2. We also made a comparison between the BlackBerry Storm 9500 and the BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 in the past but as you can see in the title, this time we’ll speak about the differences between the BlackBerry Storm 9530 and the Blackberry Storm 2 9520.
Being released with at a distance of 1 year, the BlackBerry Storm 9530 weights 155g while the other one has only 5g in plus.
If you’re having some trouble with your phone, I thought I should make this post which may resolve some of the BlackBerry owners problems. This will be kind of a series post so this is not the last time when you will see this kind of post on this blog. Anyway, let’s start with the questions and answers:
