Introduced in 1999, the Blackberry is a wireless device that offers a hoard of features such as e-mail, wireless telephony, text messaging, web browsing and other wireless information. Developed by 'Research In Motion' (RIM), it delivers information over the wireless data networks of cellular telephone companies. Blackberry's co-operation with Nokia pioneered the first US Blackberry Connect cell phone, the Nokia 9300. Since then many cell phone companies have been keen on a similar alliance. Latest to jump the band wagon, Samsung is now manufacturing mobile phones with Blackberry's e-mail feature. Their first offering is the Samsung T719. Compared to the Nokia 9300, the T719 is much more advanced in terms of appearance, features, user friendliness, and size. This 3.5 ounce phone with 3.7 x 2 x 0.7 inch dimensions is small, light weight and convenient to carry around. Taking the alliance a step further, Samsung has installed RIM's Sure Type text keypad design. The conveniently large navigation keys and flat function keys are to easy use. The 262,000-color TFT display is pleasing to the eye with a resolution of 176 x 226 pixels. The inbuilt memory of 25MB is more than enough for all your phonebook contacts and messages. Regular features such as SMS and MMS are included in the handset along with a high quality 1.3 megapixel camera. You can use the Bluetooth facility to transfer data between other external devices i.e.: other phones or a PC. With snazzy features, an attractive design, an eye-catching screen and easy to handle keypad, it's difficult to not notice T719.
