After iPhone 4, some rumors have been surfacing around that Apple is on the works with the next generation of this device, the iPhone 5. Release date of this device is rumored to be in January 2011. However, there were also some ongoing rumors that it will be in June 2011 instead. Apparently, Apple tries to address all the issues that were raised against the iPhone 4 with this upcoming device. If you will remember, Apple has faced several problems such as retina display discoloration and reception problems with the iPhone 4 when it was launched. The iPhone 5 release date is probably written in stone by now, as Apple has scheduled its annual WWDC. The possible specs of the iPhone , 5 Get the latest iPhone 5 Review and news.

With each new smartphone release manufacturers manage to stuff more technology in than ever before. In most cases, this new technology will include higher resolution displays or cameras, faster processors, more RAM and so on. However, as of late, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding NFC or Near Field Communications. Report: No NFC Chip in iPhone 5

Apple iPhone 5 is becoming more and more ‘the most wanted Smartphone of the year 2011’, which is why the internet is filled with rumours and leaked information about iPhone 5. So, now it’s my turn to add something as well, what you may or may not find in iPhone 5. I am not trying to get you all excited over nothing; I am just trying to create a wish list from my personal desires and what I call ‘gadget intuition’!

There is a huge competition in line and for the very first time, there are just so many kids in the party who want to take the biggest piece of the cake they possibly can. I am talking about HTC, which is rolling about Android and Windows Phone 7 based Smartphones with state-of-the-art hardware configurations and top-notch business productivity solutions. Then there is Samsung, which is steaming the market at a rapid rate with the upcoming launch of Galaxy S II (and Tab 2) In depth analysis of iPhone 5 : Specs | Review | Test | Price and more.

Android Market, Amazon App Store and Windows Marketplace are going to present some very hard competition to Apple Appstore as well. Collectively, iPhone 5 (you’ll know the real name at the very end of this article), must present something special in order to win the hearts of Apple fans once again and attract or steal the fans of their competitors.

Everyone is hyping up for the iphone5 to come out. With android picking up speed how will the Apple iphone 5 react to make sure it holds its dominance in the smart phone market. Read what to expect from the iphone 5 here.

So, let’s start point by point, starting with Build

iPhone 5 : Specs | Review | Test | Price

Build or Looks

iPhone 5 may not vary a lot in comparison to iPhone 4. iPhone 4 did bring a form factor with squares in comparison to rounded ones in previous generations of iPhone. However, transitioning from iPhone 4 to 5 would be a great leap forward, because it will have great hardware changes (from processor to display panel).

Right now, holding iPhone 4 feels just right and kind of ‘perfect’, Steve Jobs might want to stick with the current form factor for now. Now, talking about keeping things just the same, Apple will have to deal with the so called ‘death grip’ that affected many users last year (but didn’t slow down sales of iPhone 4). Rather than keeping the antenna close to the gripping part, it could be adjusted horizontally, in top or bottom.

In both cases, the death grip, if any, will only occur if we want to take a snap or something like that. So, when we are holding our phone like that, we wouldn’t be talking anyway, that is why this idea could work. Anyway, I am not a hardware engineer and I would prefer if Apple can come up with some other brilliant way to fix that upcoming issue. Apple iPhone 5 Review– Specifications, Release Date and Real Name

The other solution is to hold the phone with brain waves. However, Steve Jobs can’t possibly come up with that solution. Let’s leave it to Intel to figure this one out. They are the founders of tomorrow after all. In depth analysis of iPhone 5 : Specs | Review | Test | Price and more.


Resolution: 640X960 with 3.7-inch (diagonal) screen – IPS display

This fact is all over the internet that iPhone 5 might actually be larger than iPhone 4 and with all the new Smartphones (with Tegra 2 inside) coming with large display, Apple can’t back down. However, there are still two possibilities here, iPhone 5 may have a larger screen or it may have a higher resolution.

A higher resolution will already make the phone difficult to operate for people who have trouble reading small things and a higher resolution would not feel natural on a 3.5-inch screen, even if it is some retouched, ultra-sharp, crisp and antiglare version of what we have seen in iPhone 4.

Capacity or Disk Size

Disk size is of utter importance. It will be available in variations of 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB and if we are mighty lucky enough, 120 GB (ah! it brings back the sweet memories of iPod Classic 120 GB)! Finally, we will be able to store all of our personal data in just one amazing Smartphone and 120 GB must be more than enough.

In any case, it still depends on how you organize your personal life. You can have millions of megabytes to store your data and still feel like you want more, and you can have just one picture to remember and adore your loved ones (just being a little emotional, that’s all).

So, back to the size, do you think that it is possible for Apple to invent some kind of SSD for iPhone, hm? We’ll see later this year or in first quarter of 2012.


1 GHz Apple A5 Custom Designed Dual Core processor.

I just heard about this processor being installed in iPad 2 (Apple has revealed it as well) from my friend and thought, hey, if it can power up a 9.7-inch beast (make it, sort of), then it can certainly fill some juice in the latest iPhone.

Multi-tasking would not be a tale to tell anymore, it has long become an old talk and as I said in my iPad 2 article, hyper threading has a nice ring to it. However, what on earth are we going to do with hyper threading in Smartphones? Is Autodesk planning to launch Maya and 3DS Max for iOS as well? Who knows, may be!

You never know actually. One moment you are sitting comfortably on a bench, enjoying a delicious coffee or tea, and the next moment, a guy with iPhone 5 comes and starts to work on a 3D Model!

iPhone 5 : Specs | Review | Test | Price


A nice boost in RAM would be so-kind-of-Apple as well friends. I am not talking about 1 GB of RAM (well, that wouldn’t be too bad either), but 768 MB of RAM would make the Smartphone even more jazzy.

Extra Features

  • Gyroscope
  • ThunderBolt Port
  • 4G
  • Finger-print scanner for additional security or simply put, biometric security
  • 5 Mega Pixels to 8 Mega Pixels camera with Flash – 1080p video recording and playback on HD televisions via ThunderBolt Port

Real Name

As I promised that I would tell you the real name of upcoming version of iPhone, here we go. You do realise, that there is something missing in iPhone 4 and that is 4G and this is why, iPhone 5 cannot be called iPhone 5 when there is still a room for a lonely G roaming around for a place to stick and what could be a better place than, iPhone 4.

So... how do you feel about iPhone 4G than iPhone 5? Comment section is open for you anytime.

Release Date

iPhone 5 (4G) is set to be released in July 2011.

There is so much more to talk about and I will consider adding some more to it as I get the word from my friends and internet.

The fresh iPhone 5 will be plastered with amazing Modern features such as video chat with 3g and 4g (no more limited to WiFi just), automatic face recognition and extreme point downloading. Right while you believe there’s nothing additional to come up with, a lot more and more technology breaks through. And it’s on the ascent, and not merely at Apple, Inc!This iPhone 5 will deliver double core central processing unit* and greater and all-powerful graphical chips that could deliver better video resolutions and better “still” images while snapping pics, AND it will make multi-tasking a piece of cake. In that respect, their are some networks working at building up a 4G electronic network. T-mobile would make up a potential common carrier as they are GSM already. Sprint holds a 4G electronic network already… AT&T and Verizon Wireless are in the earliest phases.

Why it’s Wort to Wait iPhone 5

Sixty-four ways to like it: iPhone 5 Review - Want An iPhone 5?! Then You NEED To Read This!! Apple hasn’t increased the capacity of the iPhone since 2009, so it’s not in position to push an iPhone 5 to market without a 64 GB model, and it knows it too. The iPod touch is already at 64 GB, which is embarrassing considering the iPhone is the signature product and the iPod touch is the sidekick. So those whose current 32 GB iPhones are stuffed to the gills with music, video, and apps should expect the iPhone 5 to push into 64 GB territory.

Now with 100% less stigma: iPhone 4 users are in a bizarre situation in which their antenna’s signal strength is the strongest of any iPhone model ever, and probably the best of any smartphone to ever come to market – and yet the most common question iPhone 4 users get from onlookers is “Did they fix the antenna issue yet?” Apple has done what it can to quell the imaginary iPhone antenna issue cooked up by geek pundits who were looking for revenge over the Gizmodo incident. Apple embarrassed the living snot out of them in a press conference, all the while giving iPhone 4 users free cases just to keep the imaginary problem from getting any bigger. But while Apple’s free case program succeeded in getting the concocted hype under control, it was also misinterpreted by some confused consumers as an admission that the imaginary iPhone 4 antenna problem actually existed.

iPhone 5 : Specs | Review | Test | Price

In other words, for the rest of the iPhone 4 era, iPhone 4 users will continue to get asked about an imaginary issue, as the stigma still exists even though the issue was never real. The arrival of the iPhone 5 will cause the confused among the masses to think that the “antenna problem” has been “fixed” by virtue of moving to a new model (yes, consumers do go that far out of their way to misunderstand every aspect of consumer technology), meaning that those iPhone 4 users who upgrade to the iPhone 5 will no longer have to put up with the antenna stigma. And for those who’ve grown exhausted due to all the continual confused harping, this alone way be worth the price of upgrading. The iPhone 5, the much anticipated successor to the iPhone 4, is much expected to be more fancy. Despite our efforts to provide full and correct Apple iPhone 5 specifications, there is always a chance to build first before coming to real Apple iPhone 4 Review.

FacePalm to FaceTime: This may not be specific to the iPhone 5, but expect the launch of the iPhone 5 tomaybe coincide with the arrival of FaceTime on mobile networks. It’s not a given, but Apple is invested enough in FaceTime (in actuality and in perception) that it can’t allow the current wifi-only limitations to continue for much longer or FaceTime will instead be referred to as “FacePalm” thanks to the fact that you can rarely use it outside your own home. Apple will be able to lean on the iPhone’s carrier(s) for certain concessions during the usual give and take, so bet on Apple at least pushing for this one.

Thin is in again: Each of the three iPhone bodies (original, 3G/3GS, 4) has been thinner than the last. With Apple’s obsession for svelteness never ending across all its product lines, expect Apple to already be deep into figuring out how to further miniaturize the iPhone’s internal components so the iPhone 5 can be the thinnest yet.

Surprise!: Each iPhone generation has brought with it one left field surprise feature that no one could have seen coming. The iPhone 5 will do the same. There’s no point in even trying to guess, as the surprise feature has never been guessable. But don’t let us stop you from trying in to between now and July.

Test and Price still on hold

BlackBerry Curve 8900 : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test


BlackBerry Curve 8900 : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test BlackBerry Curve 8900 : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test. RIM's BlackBerry Curve 8900 is the second generation of the company's compact, full-QWERTY messaging smartphone. It features the same basic form factor as the original 8300 series devices, but gets some nicely upgraded features as well as a bit of the BlackBerry Storm and Bold's styling. We reviewed a T-Mobile USA version of the 8900, which supports the company's UMA based HotSpot @Home VoIP calling service. With all the fuss surrounding the arrival of the Storm it's easy to forget that most people still buy a BlackBerry to keep up with their email while on the move and aren't all that fussed about it's other myriad of features.


The Curve 8900 is designed to appeal directly to these folks, as it takes the classic Curve design and updates it with a few useful tweaks. We're disappointed by the lack of 3G, but the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 is a solid update to the Curve series, bringing a better design, We didn't know what to expect from the BlackBerry Curve 8900 but were pleasantly surprised by its attractive, slim design. Research In Motion has overhauled its popular BlackBerry Curve smartphone with the 8900. This new model features a slim design, an excellent camera.

BlackBerry Curve 8900 : Specs | Price | Reviews | TestThe overall build quality of the device is very good with one exception: the rear battery cover. RIM cut some corners with it, and it shows. The cover is loose fitting and rattles. The Curve 8900's overall design is nice, the finish is attractive, and I appreciate the soft-touch rubbery surface used on the sides and bottom of the phone. It's a solid piece of hardware.

Core Functions

Call audio quality on the BlackBerry Curve 8900 is exceptionally good, especially when on UMA based VoIP connections. Reception on GSM networks seems perhaps slightly better than on the 8320, but not much so. The speakerphone functions very well from the perspective of the remote caller, though it can sound a bit harsh to the Curve user. RIM rates the Curve 8900 for 6 hours of talk time or up to 19 days of standby time, and we can at least offer that the battery life seems better than in the 8300 series devices. For T-Mobile USA users, the Curve 8900 is compatible with the carrier's My Faves calling service.

Contact management on the Curve 8900 is very good, and the ability to search for contacts merely by typing a first and/or last name from the home screen is handy. Ring profiles on the 8900 are hugely customizable, though still a bit complex due to all of the available settings. Speed dials and speaker independent voice dialing is also available on this newest member of the Curve family.

Messaging is still the focus of any BlackBerry, and the Curve 8900 deals with such tasks well. Multiple email accounts can be easily configured on the device, and users have options as to whether they prefer combined or separate inboxes for their email and SMS/MMS messages. RIM thoughtfully included a large number of keyboard shortcuts to make messaging even faster, such as hitting the 'R' key to reply to a selected message in the inbox.

The BlackBerry Curve 8900 functions on any of the four major GSM/EDGE network bands, but lacks 3G connectivity completely. WiFi access will help mitigate that omission, but even the WiFi data speeds seem sluggish at times. The Curve 8900 supports USB mass storage emulation and Bluetooth connectivity for headsets as well as stereo headphones.

Design and User Interface

Multimedia / Applications

From a multimedia perspective, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 is a very capable device, much more so than the older 8300 series devices were. For starters, the 8900 features a very nice 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash. The photos it captures are sharp and properly colored, and the camera can also record 240x180 pixel video. Thanks to its real 3.5mm headphone jack port and reasonable music player, the Curve 8900 also does well as a personal music player. We had a 16GB Sandisk Ultra microSD card in the Curve that was filled with music, and it performed quite well. It's worth noting that the Curve 8900 only ships with a 256MB microSD card in the T-Mobile USA package.

The web browser on the Curve 8900 is very, very capable, but suffers from what could well be slowness issues associated with RIM's own servers, which try to compress the data that runs to the phone. The phone is also equipped with organizer apps, like a calendar, that can be synchronized with a personal computer over USB or to a corporate BlackBerry server. There are a ton of other apps available for the Curve, though the phone lacks the convenient Application Center that is found on the BlackBerry Storm 9530 for Verizon.

User Interface

The RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 runs the BlackBerry OS version 4.6, and as such features a much more modern look than the older models do. In fact, it is exactly the same as the one found on the BlackBerry Bold 9000 that AT&T offers, and you can get a bit more information on it in the Bold review we did last year.

But the short story version is that the new UI added color and shading to what was previously a very spartan looking operating system. Deeper level menus can still turn into long lists of black text on a white background, but the more common functions in the phone have a much prettier look and feel that is very modern.

The trackball controller remains one of the best features of the BlackBerry family of devices. It is fast, accurate, and versatile. Whether scrolling through those longs lists or merely navigating through a web page, it is great to use. The frequent use of the BlackBerry menu key and the total lack of softkeys might put off some people new to the platform, but experienced users will find BlackBerry to be one of the most efficient systems available when it comes to getting things done quickly. For the busy business professional, that means a lot.

Features of the BlackBerry Curve 8900 include:

  • 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, image stabilisation and 2x digital zoom
  • Video recording (240 x 180 pixels)
  • LCD display: 480 x 360 pixels, 65,000 colours (2.44 inches)
  • Media player (Supports MP3, WMA, MIDI, AMR-NB, WMA, AAC/AAC+/eAAC+, 3GP formats plus DivX & XviD support)
  • Messaging: SMS, MMS, instant messaging, push email with attachment viewer
  • Built-in speakerphone
  • Voice dialling
  • Voice memo recorder
  • MP3 ringtones plus a wide choice of alerts and visual indicators
  • GPS with BlackBerry Maps
  • Personal organiser functions
  • Vibration alert
  • Internet: Web browser, RSS feeds, GPRS, EDGE
  • Connectivity: WLAN, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, USB, RIM wireless modem, 3.5mm stereo headset port
  • Memory: 128 Mbytes plus 1GB microSD memory card (up to 16GB)
  • Size: 109 x 60 x 13.5 mm
  • Weight: 110g
  • Quadband GSM (1900/1800/900/850 MHz)
  • Talktime: 5.5 hours
  • Battery standby: 356 hours


When everything is added up, the BlackBerry Curve 8900 is one of the best smartphones on the market. The 8300 series was great, but the 8900 series is even better. With GPS, an autofocus camera, good web browsing, and WiFi/UMA support, the only thing that appears to be missing is 3G. We can live with that, for now.

We at MobileBurn give the BlackBerry Curve 8900 a well-deserved "Highly Recommended" rating.

You'll find a gallery of photos shot with the Curve 8900's autofocus camera, as well as additional videos, on the following pages.

Blackberry Curve 3G : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test Improved connectivity and great email, but overpriced

Forget the natty BlackBerry Torch and the much-mooted Clamshell 9760. If you’re a workaholic and looking to snaffle one of RIM’s emailers, then the Curve 3G 9300 fancies itself as the ultimate proposition.

An entry-level smartphone, the new Curve adds HSDPA to its arsenal, while sticking with the tried and tested skills of its predecessors. But with Nokia’s E-series and a raft of Android QWERTY sliders in the wild, can the Curve still cut it?

Blackberry Curve 3G : Specs | Price | Reviews | TestThere’s no getting around the fact that the Curve 3G is nothing but a minor bump. Aside from the much-needed jump to faster mobile network speeds, pretty much everything else remains the same as the year-old Blackberry Curve 8520. The screen is still 320 x 240 pixels, the back still ruggedised and the nifty trackpad still sits pretty in the centre. The chrome finish of the original Curve returns though, adding a classier feel to what was always meant to be a basic version of RIM’s email workhorse.

BlackBerry Curve 3G: Connectivity updates

3G is the number one new inclusion and it has to be said it makes using the Curve an altogether more pleasurable experience. Zipping around web pages is much quicker, although the browser in the BlackBerry 5 OS is still pitiful. As we found on the original Curve 8520 back in 2009, zooming is a nightmare and pages are poorly rendered thanks to the low-res screen. Get over those blocky pixels though and the load speeds certainly impress.

The speedier HSDPA also means loading up apps from BlackBerry App World is far swifter and makes this phone a bit of a winner. Other phones in its price bracket don’t have the same nous when it comes to apps, although we have to say the App World itself is very unintuitive. BlackBerry OS 6 should fix this and the Curve 3G is being primed for an update according to RIM. Why it couldn’t load it up from the get go though, remains a mystery.

BlackBerry Curve 3G: Email and messaging

Email, though, is the main focus here. But little has changed in the way the Curve handles messages. You still get integrated folders and quick access to your mail, but rivals have stolen a march on RIM. Nokia’s E-series handles mail every bit as well, and even Espoo’s C-series cells match it. The QWERTY is also an acquired taste and in an age where virtual keyboards and more capacious sliders are ever more prevalent, the Curve 3G feels uncomfortable. After five minutes on this panel, your thumbs feels more cramped than a rush hour tube train.

Nothing has changed from the Curve 8520’s multimedia offering either. The camera is still an utterly naff two megapixel version which just doesn’t stack up against myriad rivals. Even the most basic phones can offer better snaps than this. The music player remains functional though and the App World’s excellent 7Digital app makes it a fine rival to the iPhone’s iPod app. Video playback is a shocker though and is something we wouldn’t recommend trying too often. However, the Curve 3G’s battery life is stellar, lasting two and a half days before we needed to give it some juice.

The £280 SIM-free price tag is heftier than the far classier Nokia E72 and even RIM’s own Bold is only £40 or so more. Blackberry 6 may well make the Curve 3G classier, but in its current incarnaton this upgrade is one for RIM fans only.

What we like

Though crammed into a tiny space, the Qwerty keypad of the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is really easy to type on. The keys are raised up enough from the surface of the phone so that they're not too flush and require quite a definite push - this helps to cut down on typos. It's really easy to get to grips with and you’ll be confidently tapping out texts and emails in no time at all.

Blackberry Curve 3G : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test

weeping through menus and webpages on the optical trackpad is similarly breezy. While we generally prefer phones with trackballs as opposed to trackpads we were at little apprehensive at first. But we’re happy to report that the optical trackpad on the Curve 3G 9300 works like a charm.

There’s something rather pleasant about moving the cursor on the web browser using the trackpad, which responds to the slightest of gestures. Selecting text on the browser for copy and pasting purposes is an elegant and effortless affair.

The web browser loads pages really quickly over 3G and Wi-Fi. Obviously it’s slower over EDGE and GPRS, but not so slow that it becomes a drag. Though the size of the Curve 3G 9300’s screen is smaller than most of today’s smartphones we didn’t find surfing the web to be a cramped experience.

You get access to the BlackBerry App World with the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300. While apps are generally more expensive compared to those from the iTunes App Store and Android Market there’s still a good selection of apps and games available.

Moving music onto the Curve 3G 9300 is a simple case of connecting the phone to your computer and transferring music manually. There’s a 3.5mm jack too, freeing you up to connect whatever headphones and speakers.

What we don’t like

The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 isn’t the nicest looking BlackBerry out there. It looks chunky and the rubberised coating of the media keys and volume controls isn’t particularly pleasant to the touch. This is at odds with the fluidity of the optical trackpad and how easily and quickly you can type on the Curve 3G 9300, which makes for an odd sensation.

Blackberry Curve 3G : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test

While we found the browser to be generally ok, we found that a some of images on sites weren’t displaying - we got a lot of those all too familiar red x’s.

Disappointingly, we weren’t able to check out how the Facebook and Twitter apps fared on the Curve 3G 9300. When we tried loading both the apps we kept running into ‘data connection error’ notices, even though we were easily able to surf the web over 3G and Wi-Fi and access the BlackBerry App World. We’ve a feeling this is a problem with our review model.

Though the camera comes with some features (white balance options, black & white, sepia) its a bit lacklustre. There’s no flash and it takes a couple of seconds to process shots which just adds to the clunky feel. Pictures also don’t look that great on the Curve 3G 9300’s screen.


The BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 is an inexpensive but pretty average BlackBerry handset - it’s great for surfing the web and typing on but it feels a bit on the brickish side. The camera in very average and dated, so if this is an issue for you, we’d advise you to check out the BlackBerry Bold 9780 instead, which has a more powerful camera.

Blackberry Pearl : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test


Blackberry Pearl : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test The introduction of the BlackBerry Pearl Series to the market brings smartphones into a whole new dimension. It’s finally something from BlackBerry that you can easily grasp without the fear of dropping it; device protection costs extra. It’s probably the first BlackBerry phone you can tuck in your pocket. The new BlackBerry Pearl heralds a new dawn for smartphones with its compact shape but full functionality. Blackberry email devices have long been the plaything of the business classes. Nicknamed 'Crackberry' for its addictive qualities, those who pick up the device and subject themselves to the lure of its instant email siren frequently find themselves unable to put it down again, destined to live out a life of never-ending email ping pong.The Pearl is the first consumer-grade BlackBerry and it certainly looks the part .

You should steer clear if you want a smart phone with. now see what the experts at Cnet had to say about Blackberry Pearl. Like the previous reviews they also give the handset. "Sent via my Blackberry wireless device." This has become the tagline of small and petty email exchanges across the globe. Thanks to RIM, the company behind the Blackberry, you could be about to see a whole lot more of this tagline, as it launches the BlackBerry Pearl, an email device designed for more than just corporate bumbling.

Blackberry Pearl : Specs | Price | Reviews | Test The new Blackberry Pearl is a smartphone device that looks more like an average mobile than an email device. It's in a slick candy bar form factor, and the metallic edgings give it a touch of class. It's got a firm weight in the hand that makes it feel solid, rather than heavy, and the piano black glossy finish means that you won't feel like a dork whipping it out, which is more than can be said for most smartphones.

The front fascia lacks the usual QWERTY keyboard found on most Blackberries, with a 20-key hybrid keyboard standing in. This works via the SureType system, which I'll talk about in a bit. However, regardless of its functionality, it's clear that this is compromise made to fit a half decent keyboard into the form factor. Just above the keyboard sits the Pearl that gives this model its name. The Pearl is a rollerball/trackball, which you can use to scroll up-down-left-right with the lightest of touch. This replaces the side-mounted scroll wheel synonymous with old-style Blackberry devices, and is designed to allow you to move quicker through the menus, rather than having to scroll sequentially through each item.

The Pearl is clickable, like many 'mini-joysticks' on phones these days. On either side are the menu button and the back button. The menu button does most of the same things that clicking the old side scroll wheel did, such as bringing up a menu for reply/forward/new in email, or GoTo URL/back/forward in a browser application. In practice, this new system of navigation is really nice, although doesn't have quite the same 'natural' feel of the side-mounted wheel. It takes some getting used to, and opinion in the office is split over which is favourable. Most people used to normal phones find the Pearl a fantastic navigation system; most diehard Crackberry addicts find it a little unnerving.
One thing is clear - this is a mass market device, not just for business email-heads.

The left side of the device has got the mini-USB power jack, the 2.5mm headphone jack and a quick-key that is, by default, programmed to activate voice dialling. The right side of the device, traditionally housing the scroll wheel, now has volume up/down buttons and a quick-key that activates the camera. The top of the device has a mute button which can be quickly used to switch it between normal and silent. The positioning of these buttons is not ideal. Having the headphone jack on the side of the device makes the whole thing a little clunky in the pocket, with the 'phones sticking out the side of the device at an angle, rather than lining up nicely with the top. Ditto for the power socket on the side, which would seem to work better located at the bottom of the device. These are minor quibbles, but ones that hint at the device's heritage as a quirky business device, not one designed from the ground up for mass consumer usage.

The screen is full colour, and looks gorgeous and crisp. While it is smaller than your normal Blackberry screen, emails are still eminently readable and it's easy to navigate your way round the device. Reading email attachments and looking at photographs is also pretty doable, since the screen has a bright backlight. The screen has a 240 x 260 resolution, and is 2.25in diagonal.

Despite the fact that the screen is slightly smaller, resolution wise, than your average Windows smartphone, this doesn't make much difference to surfing the web, which is not an ideal occupation on any of these devices - bring on the iPhone? PDA versions of sites work fine on the Blackberry, and the browser makes a competent job of trying to format normal websites for the device.

Phone functionality

Phone functionality is perfectly adequate - call quality is fine, although not best in class - we found that the speaker and mic were a little less clear than found in some phones which really nail call quality, such as the Samsung D600. However, they're definitely on the better side of usable, which means you'll have no problems making and taking calls. As with other recent devices, the Pearl includes a Bluetooth module so that you can use it with a range of handsfree kits. There are dedicated call and hangup buttons, and we suspect you'll want to stay away from the decidedly mediocre wired handsfree kit that comes bundled.

In terms of talk time, the Pearl is capable. We found that normal use - some phone calls, some emails, some web browsing - saw the device last around four days before the battery got too low. The specs claim about four hours of actual talk time, which seems about right. It's quad band, so you can use it around the world - handy for getting your email wherever you are!

The phone comes with Blackberry desktop software, which allows you to synchronise your contacts with a number of different applications, including Outlook. How exactly you manage your contacts will depend on whether you buy your Blackberry for personal use or whether it's provided to you as part of a corporate deployment but, either way, adding people and general and maintenance is easy. As for the other PIM applications, they're decidedly mediocre - the Calendar is a plain text affair that is limited by the size of the screen.


However, as befits the name, email is where this device comes into its own. There are a couple of ways you can set up email, and this will depend on the way you intend it to fit into your lifestyle. If you're a business, you'll be integrating this with your existing Blackberry or push email setup using Blackberry Enterprise Server as normal, and there's nothing different to add. If you're a personal user, you have the option to associate the device with a number of personal accounts. The exact way you do this gives you a couple of choices.

We set up email using Vodafone. Vodafone makes you sign up for an account, on your phone, which you can then associate with your email address - and you also get a dedicated email address for your troubles. Your email preferences and accounts are manageable from both the phone itself and the web, although throughout our testing we found that the Vodafone web email maintenance for Blackberry was beyond flakey - 90 per cent of the time the site wasn't up, and the other 10 per cent of the time, we found it seemed to decide at random that our password wasn't correct. Not exactly a great experience.

Using the phone, we set up our device to receive emails from our .Mac email address. Merely typing in our email address and password set the Blackberry up, since it 'knows' what to do to grab email from most of the big web email service providers like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and AOL. However, we found that this service was intermittent at best. Emails were not arriving on our phone in anything like a decent amount of time, and some emails we sent were simply not arriving at their destination. We found the same thing for our Gmail account, which suffered from lost emails in both directions.

Luckily, this is not the only way to set up personal mail. Should your email account support it (and almost everything does) you can set up a dedicated forwarding rule, which means that everything coming into your email account gets forwarded to another email address. We set up .Mac to forward to our email address, then set the 'From' field on the device to spoof the .Mac email address. This resulted in all emails being immediately forwarded over to the device, and replies being sent back with no hassles. Result!

Actually sending emails is a unique experience, thanks to the SureType keyboard. This has two letters on each of the keys, making for a T9-like experience, familiar to anyone who's used predictive text on a mobile phone. However, unlike a normal phone keypad, SureType still adheres to the QWERTY layout, making this a bizarre hybrid that takes a good few days of typing to get used to. SureType is a better predictive engine than T9, since there are only two keys on each button, rather than three. It does handy things like capitalising names and adding apostrophes for you, and you'll find that 90 per cent of the time, just pressing the buttons gives you the exact message you're looking for - the amount of interference to manually override SureType is minimal, and this is definitely a good thing.

But whilst the engine behind the typing is slick, actually using the device can be a less than rewarding experience. If you have large fingers/hands, you'll find using the Pearl's minuscule keyboard a real problem. Hitting the wrong key occurs frequently and entering numbers on the middle section of the phone that has the numbers is a bizarrely frustrating annoyance. A week's worth of use will get you used to this, and make you better, but it's a very frustrating week, and one that full-size Blackberry users don't have to endure. This is the pay-off for the form factor.

As for attachments, the Blackberry has decent handling of the most common types. JPGs and other pictures are easily viewed. Word documents are converted into a format suitable for the screen, but you can forget about editing them and sending them back. PDFs are also compatible. However, our attempt to get some multimedia going by emailing an MP3 was met with a staunch refusal to open, which is slightly disappointing given the media functionality in the device.


The Pearl marks a number of firsts for Blackberry when it comes to media. It's the first expandable device - a MicroSD card lives under the battery, awkwardly, meaning you can copy music and video across. There's a 1.3-megapixel camera on the back, meaning you can take rudimentary pictures - the quality is fine, on par with every other 1.3MP camera in phones, but the market has moved on to 2-megapixel or greater. The music player enables you to listen to your MP3s through the headphones, and you can also set MP3s as ringtones. This will, no doubt, appeal to hip kids looking for a portable music fix. But just who is hip enough to have a Blackberry and not an iPod?

So does the Blackberry Pearl do its job? Well, as a consumer device, it's a definite success. It's slim, it looks great, ticks all the right boxes and adds the killer instant email feature. For kids who are on email all the time, its a great feature - and the fact that RIM is already starting to ship truckloads of these things seems to back that up. But email as a personal tool is on its way out, with social networks and instant messenger rapidly taking its place. Couple that with the fact the media functionality is average and it looks like a pony that does one trick well and merely nuzzles at a few others.

As a business device, it's clearly the next in the 'must-have' line of devices. But there's a caveat here - old-school users will possibly find the new form factor and controls too much of a jerk away from the previous iterations, and will likely lack the patience required to learn SureType.

Where this scores, business wise, is with small businesses - the fact that Vodafone has a number of reasonably priced Blackberry plans; the fact the device is small enough to use as a standard phone rather than a dedicated email device; the fact it's swanky enough to show off to your mates and colleagues; the fact that it has simple email forwarding without needing an Enterprise server - it's going to make instant email even more pervasive amongst businesses by growing the marketplace 'downward' rather than just serving as a replacement for older handsets still in the pockets of big corporations. In that respect, the Pearl is definitely a winner.


While it looks sleek and fancy, there is no reason for a shrunken BlackBerry if it means shrunken text-input functionality. Still, if you don’t plan to compose long responses, but rather seek a little entertainment and have a desire to snap a candid picture to accompany your e-mail without looking like a hip-holster geek then you qualify as a Pearl diver.

iPad VS iPad 2 : Specs | Test | Review | Price Tablet Pc Apple iPad VS iPad 2 : Specs | Test | Review | Price. I thinking about how ipad will compare to the iPad 2 — which is probably a more fair comparison. Comparison - iPad vs iPad 2:After spending hours in line today, I managed to get my greasy sausage fingers on a brand new ipad 2 review and test it. We thought we would cram everything into one article here to talk about the Apple iPad, the iPad 2, the new commercial ad featuring iOS 4.2 features and we decided to add iPad 2 and BB PlayBook going head-to-head with its release dates.

So here it is, the most awaited, much speculated gadget of the year after the Iphone 5,the Apple Ipad 2.

iPad VS iPad 2 : Specs | Test | Review | Price

To upgrade or not to upgrade? That is the question. And if you don't own an iPad but you're thinking about getting one, you may wonder what the differences are between both versions other than the sizable price gap. Sure, all of it is speculation right now and the iPad 2’s rumored specs seem to change with the wind, but I bet that Apple has something up its sleeve — and I don’t think that it’s a barometer.

iPad VS iPad 2 : Specs | Test | Review | PriceSo whats new with the second gen Ipad ? Lets analyze each of the new addition in spec-sheet of the Ipad 2.

The Processor & Graphics:
As expected the Apple Ipad 2 is powered by Apples’ new Dual core ARM based A5 Processor.The processor promises two times faster experience and it indeed delivers it.

The lucky nerds at engadget had a chance to test the baby hands-on and as you see it running you can’t help yourself but get impressed with its smokin fast performance.

We still don’t  exactly know the details of the chip powering graphics segment of the ipad 2 but its said to deliver 9 times better (sweet!) than the first gen Ipad’s PowerVR SGX 535,also the RAM is not disclosed.

Only thing that has not been tweaked is the display.The Ipad 2 features the same old 9.7Inch display with 1024*768 resolution.

The Build:
The Ipad got slimmer and lighter than we expected.The Ipad 2 weighs only 601gms and is Razor thin.With only 8.8mm thickness and such low weight its the sexiest tablet making the others look obese.

Also the slimmer,lighter,and curved body makes the Ipad 2 a delight to hold on.

The camera
The most desirable feature in the second gen Ipad,a front and back camera has been installed.

The front cam is a VGA one (30FPS recording) for facetime  and the rear side has 5MP camera with LED flash capable of 720P HD (@ 30FPS) video recording.

oh yeah,you asked for it,apple gave it.The Apple Ipad 2 has both CDMA and GSM calling support.So we will be seeing it on both Verizon and AT&T.

What more ?
we have a Gyroscope for advanced gaming,1080P TV Out (though you would need to spend an extra 39$ for the dongle called as apple digital tv adapter (Damn!)),and the all new IOS 4.3.

The Battery
The same 25Wh battery what we had in the first gen Ipad is retained in the Ipad 2 with a promise of  same 10 hours backup(*depending on the usage).

Here is a quick tabular overview on the diff between the Ipad and Ipad

Not that anyone expected Apple would give away Flash support this time but a surprise would have been sweet.Lack of Flash support is still and always would be a  major concern (at least until HTML5 powers the major video web).This lack of flash has been a major deal-breaker and one of the main reasons people should look out for an Android alternative.

No MicroSD
Sadly no expandable memory,so you have pick from the conventional 16gb,32gb 64 variants.

The basic 16GB WiFi only model is priced at 499$ and the full fledged WiFi+ 3G 64GB variant will cost you 829$.The Ipad 2 will be available at an Apple Store near you from March 11th.

Here is the quote on pricing and availability from the official Press release

Further international availability and pricing will be announced at a later date.

Apple iPad 2: Verdict

The lighter design, A5 processor, cameras, gyroscope, and other enhancements increase the iPad 2's value over the iPad... at the same price.

But the original iPad is now £100 cheaper and Apple has had a full year to innovate further without really delivering much.

We really wanted to see some jaw-dropping new features. In actual real-world speed tests, the most common apps don't perform any faster... yet. Maybe that will change when developers start to optimise apps for the iPad 2's hardware. But for now, only a few apps truly benefit.

So where does that leave the iPad 2?

We liked:

When pressed into a corner, we have to admit that the new design is attractive enough to make anyone want to upgrade. It's simply gorgeous, and retains the solid, premium feel of the original iPad.

The lighter styling means more mobility, and even less reliance on a laptop. Steve Jobs talks about a post-PC world – we're not there yet, but the writing is most certainly on the wall.

The speed improvements for GarageBand, iMovie, and several games are noteworthy. As with Android 3.0 tablets like the Xoom, the iPad 2's best days are certainly ahead of it.

Will developers start to produce games and apps that make the most of the A5 chip inside the iPad 2? We'd like to think the answer is yes – but those same developers will not want to forget about about the 15 million people out there who already have a first generation iPad – so the extent to which games and apps will be optimised is unclear.

Will the limitations of the first iPad hold the iPad 2 back? Probably. How much, we'll have to wait and see. But this is almost certainly one of the reasons behind Apple's reluctance to really innovate with the iPad 2.

We disliked:

One thing's for sure - the iPad 2 is still not a great multi-tasker. As far as that particular feature goes, Android 3.0 has iOS 4 beaten hands-down. To even say that iOS supports multitasking is stretching it if you ask us. The lack of widgets is also a drawback, and we can't see Apple introducing them to iOS any time soon.

The cameras are also very poor – and that's an area Apple could easily improve upon, but chose not to. And that leads us into the real negative feature of iPad 2 - simply its lack of innovation. This is a refined iPad, with a few extra hardware features and a more powerful CPU.


For all the negatives, for now we think the iPad 2 is still the best tablet around. It is much better for consuming media, has more compelling apps (especially for the larger tablet size), has a better app store ecosystem, and is light and useable. Maybe the Xoom or some other Android 3.0 tablet can keep up…or maybe not.

Did Apple really deliver the next big thing for tablets with its iPad 2 announcement, or did the company simply trot out a moderate upgrade to keep pace with the other guys?

iPad 2While specs don't necessarily tell all, they can be great indicators of a device's progress as it jumps from one generation to the next. A comparison of the iPad 2's specs to the original iPad shows whether Apple's new model truly evolved, and if it deserves to be lauded as the greatest thing to happen to tablets since, well, the first iPad.

So..are u getting one ?
