Discovering and Sprint Blackberry
Sprint has three models of Blackberry’s available to you in the US:
- Blackberry Curve 9330 (Purple and Grey)
- Blackberry Style (Purple and Black)
- Blackberry Bold 9650
The Bold, the Curve, and to a lesser extent the Style, are highly attractive phones for users in the corporate sector. This is largely due to the excellent full QWERTY keypad which makes emailing and messaging quick, accurate and easy. The robust and compact design of the phones in conjunction with the strong security features of BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) add to the attractiveness of Blackberry phones.
BES ability to securely and quickly synchronize your work email, contacts, calendar, etc. is reason enough for many corporate users to use Blackberry. Blackberry Messenger (BBM) is a popular instant messenger system, unique to Blackberry, allowing users to stay in touch with friends no matter where they are in the world. BBM is highly popular with younger generations, hence, also making Blackberry an appealing choice to both young adults and corporate users.
In many respects the Bold and the Curve are similar in looks and features, however, the Bold has more memory, speed and better finishes. All three of the phones mentioned above support Blackberry’s latest operating system, version 6. The Style is an interesting option if you are in the market for a smaller clam style designed phone.
The Style is a well design, compact phone; however, I feel the keys are a little cramped making typing a little difficult. Something that you should look out for is the 9930 Touch Screen 4G Bold that was recently announced by Blackberry. The only provider to announce that they will stock the 9930 is T-Mobile, who expects to have it available to you sometime this summer. Sprint will most likely stock this icon touch screen Bold, however, have yet to make any official statements.
The Bold is the best Sprint Blackberry due to its practical design. The Curve is similar to the Bold in many respects and is half the price. The Curve doesn’t have the same processor speeds and ‘crashes’ under pressure on occasion. In my experience.
The Style is probably the best flip Smartphone out at the moment and it’s compact design appeals to a wide range of users. The keyboard is a little flat and cramped compared to the Bold and Curve, however, works well and is an expected spin off for having such a compact phone. (Source Ezine Articles)
