this device does not have a camera because it is a BUSINESS CENTRIC device. for business people working in high security areas and can not have a camera. im no business user but i can live without it. ill sacrifice thte camera for allllllll of the other awesome features on this phone. check out blackberryforums.com and see for yourself how many other people enjoy what this phone can do. and wifi? if uve got unlimited data on edge plan, whats the point? plenty fast and if you dont have a data plan with this phone, you bought it for all the wrong reasons. love the phone. worth every penny and more.....
I work for O2 and one of our people in purchasing have said O2 are not stocking the 8800!!
Not to sound sexiest so don't get the wrong idea, but to me the blackberry has always been a male driven phone beause of its size(To Me). Besides the people who use it in the everyday Business world (men and women).
My question is does anyone realy like the pearl I mean to me it suck's. lets keep the little fu fu ball on the smaller verison of the blackberry and come up with something new and round.
wtf!! no camera. what the hell is wrong with theses people!! now i am very upset. i will yell now because i am going to go crazy. aaaahhhhhhhhh!! aaaahhhhhhhh!!
ok then the best blackberry to get with a camera is the pearl its such a nice phone i love it i work at cable&wireless in antigua and we have it for a nice price the pearl is really hot
i am planning to buy new black berry phone .can anybody help me that does it has a camera or not if yes on which model has a camera please help me out
If you choose to get this phone be aware the gps maps that blackberry supply only have the data of major destinations, any rural areas are downloaded over gprs and saved on the handset as the phone cannot hold all road maps of the world. Also you must have gprs set up and normal network charges apply.
Rim will release the 9000 series Blackberry with a brand new operating system sometime around October/November.I can't wait.
the phone has faster internet than the treo, plus it has a more stable OS. it's thinner, a little heavier, but feels more secure in the hand. the buttons are about the same size, but have raised edges, so i like that better as well. the rollerball takes a minute to get used to, but overall this is a great phone.
how is it for web browsing,if compared to a treo, i do alot of web than e-mail, is the web browser faster , slower or the same as treo. which would you guys recommend
This phone isn't any better than the Pearl with no camera except it has wi-fi and something else but I'm no phone genius. I hope the 8900 debuts...
well you really cant knock this phone down unless you own it. im no business person and honestly dont even NEED this phone. i picked it up on wednesdays release day and switching from a samsung d807 and sk3 to a device like this took some time....like an hour....my first blackberry and all i can say is that it truely is a great phone. quality. design. performance. ive had the windows mobile, the ericsons, the slim samsungs. but this is really great as far as email goes....which i am now using far more frequently than ever! a brick?!? hardly. very well built like i said. and as far as i can tell you just cant even compare it to other multimedia and "fun" centered phones because this phone is just on another level. good job RIM.....
okay.....snappers comment should be put at the top of this page, he's hit the nail on the head perfectly. whenever anyone logs in to write another ridiculous comment like "why does anyone buy these bricks" its not even 3G (who needs 3G for email!!!???).if you need mobile email your mad to buy anything but blackberry. and its the only device secure enough for CIA, MoD, the Army, US Congress etc etc youd never see them with a WM!!!!!Once youve used a BlackBerry you will never ever go back!!!i promise!!!
This is a fantastic phone, very easy to use and ergonomically designed. For those who bought the pearl - I suggest you put it on e-bay and acquire this more sensible option.
