|The Blackberry 9780 might look like your standard blackberry device, but this Smartphone brings quite a few changes to the table. The first thing you’ll notice is the new operating system, but the fact that this phone doesn’t come with a touch screen is also a big surprise. Other than that, the Blackberry 9780 brings a few features to the table, but nothing out of the ordinary. This is what most people would call a reasonably priced phone that offers a little bit of everything, without taking any risks.
Most people who are interested in a BlackBerry will probably want to go online from time to time directly from their hand held device. You can stream videos straight from your favorite websites like YouTube and you can easily log in to your Facebook or Twitter accounts. Even with a somewhat small screen, you can still enjoy surfing the internet and you can easily fit the phone in your pocket. Writing an address into the address bar is surprisingly easy and you won’t have any other problems when navigating online. If some of your friends already own a BlackBerry, you will definitely enjoy using the BlackBerry Messenger, an application that allows text chat and the transfer of any type of files for free. If this is not your thing, you can always use any other instant messenger than you normally install on your computer since the operating system supports almost any kind of program.
The BlackBerry 9780 has built in A-GPS, so you can use it to find your way around the city. You can pretty much use it like you would use the GPS on your car, but the only difference is that the phone will give you the instructions on the screen since it doesn’t support regular speaking software. You can download different map packs and mapping applications, depending on your personal preferences.
The app store can be accessed directly through the menu and there are plenty of applications you can download. BlackBerry doesn’t lack anything in this department and it seems that more and more people are focusing on creating innovative apps for Android.
The 9780 comes with 512 MB of internal memory and the same amount of RAM, working with a 624 MHz processor. If you want more space, you can buy a memory card of up to 32GB. This combination works most of the time, but if you download some of the applications available in the app store, you will eventually find one that causes some delays. Other than that, the BlackBerry 6 operating system does a decent job in all departments. As usual, multitasking is possible and you won’t run into any problems when doing it.
Pros and Cons
On the downside, this new phone doesn’t offer any exciting features. The video quality is decent, the camera quality is above average, and the processing unit is on par with most phones from its price range. The BlackBerry 9780 doesn’t excel in any category, expect web surfing.
