James , London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
it works great once you pass the learning curve.
Bad points:
the desktop manager really needs to be seamless with the windows, like working in the background etc., BB also need to give the user more flexibility on giving access to tje micro sd card as well. Like transfering tones. With the BB has more internal memory like 2GB will be ideal. . Wish there is better documentation on how to use the device properly. wish there is a keystrokes to lock the keyboard. Voice activation button activates whenever you take the BB out of the holder, when you get a phone call still have not figure out how to increase the volume. GPs works great but the trackerball use is confusing and had to control with the zoom on the map, it not work too well to sensitive.

Jomar, Godalming/Surrey Very pleased & value

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The e-mail facility is very good and effective. It is not very user friendly to setup on the handset itself but the website compensates this and makes a very useful tool.
Bad points:
The Navigation is a bit of problem since it is sometimes very difficult to find yourself when looking for features and settings on the handset for example change basic settings like contacts, etc.
The keypad is good and it is so far the best Blackberry can offer for. not too compact but functional.
