The "hand model" clearly has huge hands...this is something I notice most manufacturers do to make their phones "look" smaller but unless GSM Arena is using stock photos why would you guys do it as well? I have normal sized hands and this phone in real life is much bigger than it looks in your photos.
Hi there, I'm a really phone user. I've been using lot of kind of phones. I really strongly to see blackberry comapny go bankcrupt this or next year..cheer bankcrupt blackberry.
the reasons are:
- made from a very cheap material, but sold with very high price.
- actaully, app. can't be used without blackberry internet connection
- very worst quallity i ever seen.
"..not enough to provide incremental improvements when upgrading an iconic handset. The iPhone somehow gets away with that, but Apple usually does. But for regular mobile phone manufacturers it.."
Iphone gets away wiyh it because they havn't changed there 3 year old design, B/berry do and will again... since my company started selling Iphone our B/berry sales have shot up

The other 50% probably use iPhones. In fact, I've rarely seen a Nokia or SE in anyone's hands around here.
I am Iphone user , and am happy with it . But if i had %70 of my contact using BBMs , i would get a blackberry . other than that . i don't need one at all . here in kuwait you will find 5 of 10 mobile users having Blackberrys !
all you see in public places ppl with there heads down looking at there phone writing BBMs all the time ! And am fighting not to be one of those ppl . its like a sifi movie or something !
Hehe... Still doesn't support skype or analoque... Just IM+ but it has very expensive because it has callback (two way call - double pay).... Bye bye Blackberry

"blackberry browser is good"
yeah. it better be, since RIM bought out the torch mobile staff- the guys who made the IRIS browser for winmo.
if there was any browser that could trump opera mobile- it is the iris.
sadly, it is now only available on softpedia.
Very interesting and well written review. One comment about security:
You wrote in the review:
>So unless you need the level of security of the BlackBerry Servers,
> we have to admit the E72 does look like the clear winner here.
I have no information regarding the security level of the BlackBerry servers.
However, I think it is worth noting that it is possible to make a "direct" secure connection from
Nokia E72 mail for exchange client to the exchange server.
E72 also has VPN client, which means that it is possible to have full secure IP connectivity so that you can potentially access all intranet services you need, not just email.
Look at the comment of E72 at 3000 plus vs BB bold at 600 plus
the reason is simple...
there is no need to figure out.. only a person of low intelligence would ask why
