Quickie review: BlackBerry 8700

March 29, 2007


I finally broke down and bought a BlackBerry. So far I have to say it’s been amazing. I bought a BlackBerry 8700, but the reason I was inspired to post is sort of unusual. I decided to post because I dropped my brand new BlackBerry 8700 three times in the first 24 hours I had it… two times on a hard tile floor, once on pavement… while I was running. All three times the device fell hard. It ought to have broken… seriously, but it’s barely got a scratch, which totally blows me away.

Having my expectations exceeded made me figure it was worthwhile to post. Truly an excellent product from a colossal success in Waterloo, Ontario.
