Top BlackBerry Smartphones: A Look at the Best Options

4 Hottest New BlackBerry Smartphones

Though the tech punditry would have you believe otherwise, the BlackBerry platform from Research in Motion is still thriving, and the release of BlackBerry 10 towards the end of 2012 should revitalize the operation. With the approach of this new OS, and all of the current offerings exceeding the status quo, the BBM Generation has reason to rejoice! Here are four of the best Blackberry smartphones that are currently available.

BlackBerry Bold 9900

If you’re the type of multitasker who’s constantly instant messaging and firing off E-mails, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is the phone for you. Featuring 640 x 480-pixel resolution on a 2.8” screen, a 1.2 GHz CPU, 8 GB of onboard storage, and a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 32 GB, it’s powerful enough for just about any user. It comes equipped with the standard QWERTY keyboard, as well as a nimble and responsive capacitive touch screen.

BlackBerry Curve 9360

For users who prefer a seamless experience over the latest and greatest in hardware, the Curve 9360 is a phone worthy of consideration. Sporting a 2.44” LCD with 480 x 360-pixel resolution, support for 32 GB microSD cards, 512 MB of RAM, 800 MHz processor, and a 5.0 MP primary camera, it’s not quite as powerful as some other phones. However, it’s got the expected physical keyboard as well as an optical trackpad for a hassle-free user experience.

BlackBerry Pearl 3G

The Pearl 3G is a solid workhorse for those who don’t require a ton of bells and whistles. It features a 3.15 MP main camera, a 624 MHz CPU, 2 GB of built-in storage and room for up to 32 GB, and BlackBerry OS 7. While those specifications aren’t exactly mind-blowing, the real strength of the Pearl is its rock-solid reliability. BlackBerry business phone services are known for their efficient messaging platforms, and the Pearl 3G is perfect for corporate employees who need a competent E-mailing and web browsing machine that’s secure and safe.

BlackBerry Torch 9860

The Torch 9860 is an Android-sized mobile phone that features a 3.7”, 800 x 480-pixel screen and ditches the traditional QWERTY slider in favor of a virtual, onscreen keyboard. It boasts 768 MB of RAM, 4 GB of onboard storage, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm 8655 CPU, a 5.0 MP main camera, and support for 32 GB microSD expansion cards. The combination of a capacitive touchscreen, an optical trackpad, and impressive internals make the Torch 9860 the BlackBerry to beat.

Once BlackBerry 10 hits the streets, we should see an uptick in RIM’s mobile market share. Their new QNX-based Blackberry Tablet OS is already garnering a lot of positive feedback from both critics and consumers alike. Hopefully, the models listed above can keep current die-hard RIM fans loyal and attract a few new converts while the new OS is being rolled out. Whether it’s the Pearl 3G or the Torch 9860 that strikes your fancy, any of these stellar devices is a sure-fire winner.
