BlackBerry Phones - Smart Phones for Professionals

BlackBerry phones aren't as popular as they once were. With fierce competition coming from flashier phones like the iPhone and Android smart phones some have made the switch. With the release of the 9930 in late 2011 and the promise of BlackBerry 10 phones in late 2012 many users are starting to return.

Best and Top Rated Blackberry Smartphones 2013 Review

Admittedly I've had some frustrations with BlackBerry in the past including the 8320 - which had to be one of the worst phones I've used. For some reason I keep crawling back, and with the new BlackBerry Bold 9330 I'm finally glad I did.

5 Reasons why I love the Blackberry 9330:

1. I have big fingers and I'm a little clumsy. The keyboard on the 9330 is smooth, responsive, and is auto correct free!

2. A better processor and better memory finally gives me the speed I need with the interface I want. Combined with Liquids graphics technology the phone just seems smoother than anything RIM has put out in the last couple of years.

3. Pictures I can actually use. With the 5 mp camera I get pictures that aren't quite camera quality, but that I can definitely use on Facebook and e-mail to family and friends.

4. My e-mails are super easy to manage. With a business, personal, and offer-type e-mail I switch between them quite frequently. POP, IMAP, Exchange.

5. The battery life is equal to or better than other Smart Phones I've used. I can take it to work, where I use it all the time, and come home without worrying about having to have a spare battery or recharge it.
