The guys (and gals) over at PCMag have got a review of the Blackberry 8800 – they gave it a 4 out 5 editor’s rating. As we would have suspected they loved the new form factor, the addition of the new ‘Pearl’ trackball, but were disappointed (as we have been) with the lack of 3G connectivity. Because of its non-3G-ness they reported that the GPS maps loaded slowly – stuttered in fact – and we’ve even heard that they aren’t all that accurate, although reports have it that updates will be provided soon to fix the GPS accuracy. PCMag’s continuous talk time: 15 hours and 19 minutes.
Head over to PCMag for the complete review.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
