The Dark Fruit

The BlackBerry has taken over the world. What used to be exclusively for businessmen is now being used by teenagers and adults all across the world. What has influenced these people to buy the BlackBerry? The answer lies in a program that BlackBerry offers to all of their users. BBM is the service that provides instantaneous communication between two people. Not only is the service free, but it can also be used to any BlackBerry in the world.

Though the service is free, it still uses the internet on your phone to connect to the world, and if you do not have the right contract, you could find yourself with a hefty bill to pay at the end of the month.  Fortunately, many mobile phone companies will make special plans for the internet usage so that your bill doesn’t add up too much.
BlackBerry ‘s have some new and incredible tech specs, such as the new BlackBerry Torch 9800, with a slide out keyboard and a touch screen, this BlackBerry is bringing new ideas to the companies monotonous line of BlackBerry’s. The new Torch is really trying hard to be able to compete with the new phones, such as the Nokia N8. Unfortunately, the BlackBerry doesn’t have some of the hardware that the Nokia does, and falls behind in that respect. Even so, the Torch does a reasonable job with a 5Mp camera; the capability to read and write documents and emails on the move with the full QWERTY keyboard is fantastic.

Bringing a phone that is aimed at businessmen, but also teenagers is very difficult to do as they both have such different requirements. BlackBerry has done an excellent job in using a 3.5mm headphone jack so that you are able to listen to music on the go. For teenagers and businessmen alike, the full QWERTY keyboard is brilliant.


  1. Sooo the only reason I should ever consider any Blackberry is Blackberry Messenger? Ok thanks for that, I shall not waste any energy or time on that as my Nokia N900 can be connected to skype, icq, aol, aim, jabber you name it and the other person does not have to own his or her N900, they can sit in front of their PC or laptop that runs windows or linux ooor yes they can use some other phone that supports it..

  2. BBM is a huge selling point...

    That is all I was emphasising.
