BlackBerry Z30 review: Against the odds

BlackBerry Z30 review: Against the odds

Hristo Zlatanov, 6 November 2013

The BlackBerry Z30 launches in time of crisis and will be looked upon as the savior, or end up as the one that witnessed the company's undoing. Market share has hit the fan, as RIM of old which stood for...

BlackBerry Q5 review: The apprentice

BlackBerry Q5 review: The apprentice

GSMArena team, 26 July 2013

Smartphone makers believe in trickle-down economics. They build their portfolios top to bottom, looking to get as much bang out of the flagship as they can and, after the hype around it has settled, they bring out the more affordable...

BlackBerry Q10 review: There and back again

BlackBerry Q10 review: There and back again

GSMArena team, 02 June 2013

Some revolutions end in triumph, others in tyranny. Itís a walk on the edge of a blade between glory and the guillotine. And BlackBerry has had its share of revolutions Ė the most recent ones being the rebranding and the...

BlackBerry Z10 review: Swipe clean

BlackBerry Z10 review: Swipe clean

GSMArena team, 15 February 2013

The BlackBerry Z10 heralds the rebirth of a fallen leader in the smartphone market. Itís a clean break from the past with a big touchscreen and novel OS, but the same business mentality that made it the favorite of office dwellers around the world...

BlackBerry Z10 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 8 February 2013

Challenging the establishment with a brand new platform isn't something you do in just one try. The Z10 has to convince users that BlackBerry has what it takes to compete with the best. After a certain...

GSMArena team, 28 August 2012

Anyone familiar with Research In Motion knows that the people behind BlackBerry have been busy working on the latest version of their OS Ė BlackBerry 10 Ė for the better part of a year now. And while RIM promise that BB10 will be their ticket back into...

BlackBerry Bold 9790 review: Bold and the budget

BlackBerry Bold 9790 review: Bold and the budget

GSMArena team, 27 January 2012

Oh, look - it's another BlackBerry Bold! But what's the catch? And where is the difference really? Sure it looks a bit smaller than the 9900 but it's the same QWERTY / touchscreen combo. So far, so good. Now, let's play spot the difference...


BlackBerry Curve 9380 review: Not what youíd expect

BlackBerry Curve 9380 review: Not what youíd expect

GSMArena team, 29 December 2011

The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is RIMís first ever-released Curve with a touchscreen. The Curve lineup is usually an expression of RIMís understanding for a budget phone and this one supposedly, doesnít make a difference. It should ...


BlackBerry Curve 9360 review: Up and about

BlackBerry Curve 9360 review: Up and about

GSMArena team, 25 November 2011

This QWERTY messenger is compact and to the point, with clean and grown up design. The Curve 9360 is sure it can deliver, its confidence unshaken by unknowns and uncertainties. RIM must've enjoyed the safety and comfort of doing what they're best at...

BlackBerry Torch 9810 review: Buttoned-up

BlackBerry Torch 9810 review: Buttoned-up

GSMArena team, 5 October 2011

A fresh dose of oxygen or a new torchbearer? It doesnít matter which one you think RIM needed to keep the flame alive. They got both in the new BlackBerry Torch 9810. Double the processing power, the new sped-up and brushed-up...


BlackBerry Torch 9860 review: Keyless, not clueless

BlackBerry Torch 9860 review: Keyless, not clueless

GSMArena team, 29 September 2011

No QWERTY keyboard, no SurePress clickable screen gimmickry, the BlackBerry Torch 9860 is taking the plunge. Not the first time that RIM are venturing into touchscreen but they're past the point of no return with this one...


BlackBerry Bold 9900 review: Business reimagined

BlackBerry Bold 9900 review: Business reimagined

GSMArena team, 20 September 2011

A brand new OS, more speed, a facelift and a high-res touchscreen, the latest of the Bold messengers is listening for the roar of the crowd. There's no going back to the old rational and composed self - give it danger, thrills and excitement...

BlackBerry Media event: Live coverage

GSMArena team, 03 August 2011

RIM's BlackBerry Media Event today is off to a start and the company is launching no less than five smartphones all running the BlackBerry OS 7. We've got the full scoop, complete with hands-on pics and videos.


BlackBerry Bold 9780 review: Business as usual

BlackBerry Bold 9780 review: Business as usual

GSMArena team, 21 January 2011

Itís no surprise that the BlackBerry Bold 9780 is the next logical evolutionary step, rather than a complete makeover that will propel it into the same league as the iPhone and Android. RIM has a loyal core of customers...

BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 review: Back in style

GSMArena team, 04 October 2010

Berries have been changing Ė in small steps, and big leaps. Sometimes stumbling, other times graceful and assertive. It seems the time was finally right for the Pearlsí makeover too. Itís been almost three years since the last of...

BlackBerry Torch 9800 review: Living the Olympic creed

GSMArena team, 24 September 2010

The BlackBerry Torch is not the first phone to give you both a full hardware QWERTY keyboard and an ample touchscreen in a smartphone setting. But itís a debut for BlackBerry and one that will probably shape the future for the next generation of RIM phones...


BlackBerry Storm2 9520 review: Back in Black... Berry

BlackBerry Storm2 9520 review: Back in Black... Berry

GSMArena team, 08 January 2010

RIM are a company with style and simply hopping on the touchscreen bandwagon with another iPhone wannabe just wouldn't suit them. They certainly realized the importance of having a full-touch device in their portfolio but wanted a clear and legible BlackBerry imprint on it...


BlackBerry Curve 8520 review: BlackBerry Lite

BlackBerry Curve 8520 review: BlackBerry Lite

GSMArena team, 22 December 2009

With the Bold almost reaching perfection in the BlackBerry arts, new horizons need to be explored to keep the spark alive. The tall task to pioneer new territories (in BlackBerry terms anyway) falls on to the Curve 8520. The new Curve has a price tag thatís easier on the wallet...

BlackBerry Bold 9700 review: Dare you go

BlackBerry Bold 9700 review: Dare you go

GSMArena team, 8 December 2009

Some handsets will work their socks off to have their fifteen minutes of fame, others are simply born into stardom. The BlackBerry Bold 9700 is certainly fortunate to carry a name that stands for popularity and excellence in the RIM family of phones. But this kind of fame can be less a blessing and more of a curse if the successor fails to live up to the standards set by its illustrious namesake

BlackBerry Bold 9000 review: Berry with guts

GSMArena team, 10 April 2009

There we go folks, itís a BlackBerry grand slam at the arena and we're set for another ride with RIM's finest. We guess this here Berry is neither Curve-hot nor Storm-inventive but itís Bold enough to say little and...

BlackBerry Curve 8900 review: Curved right

GSMArena team, 18 March 2009

The sharp and compact BlackBerry Curve 8900 spells business and oozes with class. Easily the hottest looker in the Curve lineup Ė and possibly portfolio-wide Ė earns much respect as a massive functionality upgrade over its predecessors...

BlackBerry Storm 9500 review: Berry-go-round

GSMArena team, 13 March 2009

It's not everyday that you see a BlackBerry review on our homepage but it's not like RIM routinely churn out devices like the Storm either. Messaging is still the legendary name but touchscreen is the game...
