The Top BlackBerry Smartphones of the Holidays for 2010
Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s holiday shopping time. With Black Friday today, I decided to do a quick recap on the five new BlackBerry smartphones that Research In Motion (RIM) started selling this year. All of them will eventually get an update to BlackBerry OS 6 and three of the phones on the list already ship with the much improved operating system. If there is a BlackBerry lover you are shopping for this holiday season, be sure to check these models out. Don’t forget the accessories either!
BlackBerry Bold 9780
The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a refresh of the older Bold 9700 and features an improved, 5 megapixel camera, the famous BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard and BlackBerry OS 6 preloaded. The 9780 doubles the RAM from the previous 9700 and if you are looking for a tried and true design from RIM, this is your best bet.
BlackBerry Style 9670
The BlackBerry Style 9670 features a flip-phone or ‘clamshell’ design but still packs a full QWERTY keyboard inside. The Style also features an external display to give you the heads up on who is calling or messaging. If you know someone who prefers flip phones but still wants smartphone functionality, check out the Style.
BlackBerry Curve 3G
The BlackBerry Curve 3G brings all of that famous BlackBerry functionality at a price that won’t kill your holiday shopping budget. In fact it’s free right now with a new contract. Like its big brother, the Bold 9780, the Curve 3G features a full QWERTY keyboard. The smartphone has also been promised an update to BB OS 6.
BlackBerry Peal 3G
The BlackBerry Pearl 3G is a small, sleek smartphone that doesn’t compromise for the price. A 3 megapixel camera is inside (with a flash) and the Pearl 3G can be found in both QWERTY and regular keypad configurations. BlackBerry OS 6 will come to the model soon.
BlackBerry Torch 9800
The most anticipated BlackBerry of the year, the BlackBerry Torch 9800 features a full touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard. Don’t worry, the trackpad is still included. The Torch also comes preloaded with BB OS 6.
