DOPE:

  • Memory and speed: The phone comes with 256MB of internal memory (w/ option to expand to 16GB) and BB's 5.0 OS makes opening programs and taking pictures simple.
  • Threaded SMS: An improved IM and messaging layout organizes your BB Messenger/SMS messages.
  • Attractive design: Chrome metal accents and a metal battery lock add swagger to this phone's physical appearance.

  • NOT SO DOPE:

  • Web browser: Opera Mini is a better web browser, download it.
  • Finicky touchscreen: The SurePress touchscreen technology takes an L compared to a standard keyboard.
  • No Flash or zoom functionality on the camera: Not a deal-breaker, but might be an issue for some.
