Blackberry - RIM

Some use SIM cards while others are CDMA

Blackberries were first mainly used as business phones due to high data availability such as e-mail, office documents., Pearl,Curve, etc, Common Curve models are 8310, 8320, 8330 and the newer Curve model is the 8350i., The 8310 and 8330 have GPS with no wifi while the 8320 has no GPS, but has wifi, but the 8350i has both and is the only Curve model with both features, http://www.blackberry.com/blackberrycurve.shtml, http://www.blackberry.com/blackberrypearl/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BlackBerry, http://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/, Curves & Pearl's can range in price from .99-$200 depending on carrier contracts, place of purchase etc..., Bold, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fl7cqFQatP4, http://www.blackberry.com/blackberrybold/, http://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/blackberrybold/, Storm, US carrier availablility is limited to Verizon (VZW), The Storm 9530 & 9500 are the first ever touch screen Blackberry phones ever released., At the moment the Storm's are on version 1 and do have GPS, version 2 will also include wifi as well as GPS., Retail a Storm goes for $550, with a 2-year plan from VZW they cost $150-200., http://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/blackberrystorm/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BlackBerry_Storm, http://blogs.pcworld.com/staffblog/archives/007749.html, The 9530 Storm model is SIM based and is considered a global phone not just because it uses a SIM, but it also comes with around the world AC adapter plugs for overseas.

One of the main features of Blackberries is the Push technology that allows instant sending and receiving of e-mail without adjusting the send and receive time like MS Outlook has.

Unlocking of a Blackberry can range from $17 - $69, after the unlock, for example if using a Storm on AT&T you will also have to load the AT&T service books since the Storm is a VZW specific phone.

Service books are basicaly how the phone uses services on a carrier's network.

Now adays there are so many free and paid for applications that Blackberries are not only for business use, but not are becoming more predominant for personal outside of business use.

There is typically two types of Blackberry user's, BIS & BES

BES is a special server with the BES software controlling software, access and e-mail while BIS is a non-business user that has full access to every aspect of their Blackberry without controlled access.
