When you hear about the cool new cell phone someone got what do you think of? The first thought that goes through most people’s heads today is the iPhone. The iPhone has a cool factor; it has a cult following. The Apple brand has the catchiest commercials advertising this product. When you own an iPhone you can download the most useful apps. The iPhone has the sleekest design on the market. Every phone on the market, in one-way or another, tries to compete with the IPhone. How can any other brand compete with the iPhone?
The Blackberry is a really functional cell phone. You can handle emails; bbm your co-workers and take pretty decent photos. The blackberry in many cases is viewed as a business phone; a practical phone for a man always working. But how can the blackberry compete with the cool factor of the iPhone?
Research in motion unveiled yesterday two seemingly cool smartphones. These two new Blackberry torch models bring a sleek new style to the Blackberry. The Blackberry Torch 9850/9860 is an all-touch model that was supposed to be worth the crown of a more user-friendly that the Blackberry storm. This new Torch operates on the also new blackberry 7 OS. The OS has hardware graphic acceleration which provide for a smoother user experience. Reviews of the Blackberry torch 9810 is being seen as looking identical to the Torch 9800.
PC Magazine reported yesterday that neither new device of Blackberry is as slender as the iPhone 4. The Blackberry battery life does not last nearly as long and the storage is smaller than that of the iPhone. Even though these options fall short of the iPhone, the new lineup of Blackberry was to buy RIM time until it is able to introduce its radically new software package for smartphone.
Even if the Blackberry cannot compete with the iPhone it is still an excellent phone. This phone line performs excellent in business settings. It is the easiest phone to view and send emails on. Yes the apps lack compared to other cell phones but the business-oriented person will really enjoy the Blackberry setup.
