Would you believe the BlackBerry 7105T is the only smartphone to ever grace Ms. Winfrey's “Favorite Things” list? No lie. An upgrade from the 7100t, the handset carried over a majority of its predecessor’s features (quad-band world roaming, Bluetooth), also adding a high-res color screen, Yahoo e-mail access, and contoured keys for better typing. The co-sign was so huge, eBay Marketplace Research reported the device saw a 26 percent increase in sales two weeks after Oprah’s giveaway.
