Unboxing the BlackBerry Storm

BlackBerry Bold - Content

BlackBerry Bold - Content

Comes with the following accessories.

  • Leather Pouch
  • Wired Headset
  • USB Cable
  • Wall Charger
  • Manual + CD

The unit comes with an un-interesting packaging. A black box with a BlackBerry Logo on top and the device name located at the side with font size 8 or something! All 3 BlackBerry Storm, Bold and Curve comes with the same box, same size and font. So, it can be quite confusing and mistakenly taken the wrong box.

BlackBerry Bold Headset

BlackBerry Bold Headset

The bundled headset/handsfree is actually very nice! The BlackBerry logo is clearly seen and the quality is pretty good too.

First Impression

BlackBerry - Pouch

BlackBerry - Pouch

The provided leather pouch holds the device firmly but exposing the top indicator light so that users can easily take a look at the notification light. The pouch is so tight that when you are trying to remove the phone from it, it will turn on the Bold “automatically”. 

Using the BlackBerry Bold

One of the few distinct feature of Blackberrys are their keypad and trackball; and I totally agree! The QWERTY/QWERTZ keyboard is fantastic to type on and the trackball is super easy to navigate around!

Getting the BlackBerry up and running with all my contacts was SIMPLE! Since I am using Google account, a simple Google Sync setup synchronized all my contacts and appointment over to the new device; effortless! 

BlackBerry Bold - Main Screen

BlackBerry Bold - Main Screen

When there is an incoming new Email, a red flashing indicator light will appear near the top right side of the phone. The main screen of the BlackBerry is very plain and simple with only 6 icons appearing. 

Each Email account which you associate with your BlackBerry Server appears as an individual icon. Therefore you can easily identify which Email of yours has a new mail. All these located at the front screen shows how much emphasis BlackBerry put on (push) Email.

On top of the screen shows how many new Emails are received. Attachment are clearly indicated and Bold is able to easily open most of the popular attachment like Excel, Word, Powerpoint, pictures…

The movie player in the Blackberry Bold is surprising powerful. Right out of the box, I was able to play most of the file format including DivX and MPEG!

BlackBerry Bold - Map

I don’t like the built-in BlackBerry Maps and I have not figured if it is possible to install other third party maps onto BlackBerry like Mapking, Garmin or Papago maps? Anyone want to share your experience on the mapping software on Blackberry?

Some of the popular pre-installed games. Better than Windows Mobile pre-installed games! 🙂

A pretty nice built-in Facebook app which allow you to view, upload and update status on Facebook!

The browser on the BlackBerry Bold is quite slow if compared to other browser on other platform like Safari (iPhone) or Opera (Windows Mobile). Nothing to shout about in this department.

Conclusion

Pros:

  • Long battery life
  • Robust Email System
  • I absolutely love the trackball
  • Blackberry system is responsive, reminds me of the good old Palm OS days

Cons:

  • Lack of 3G Video Camera
  • Lack of Auto-focus function
  • Built-in browser could be better
  • Limited 3rd Party Apps
  • Interface is rather boring. It’s a business phone.

Functions of Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)

April 27, 2009

FG Logo

When I ask someone who has not used a PDA before; Why are you not using a PDA?” or Will you use a PDA?”, some of the most common replies I get are…

A1: “My RM300 phone already has appointment and task built in. So I don’t need a powerful device to do it.”

A2: “I don’t have so many contacts/email to store.”

A3: “I don’t need to set appointments as I am not in sales/marketing line.”

A4: “Expensive!”

A5: “Don’t know how to use.”


Generally, when people think of PDA, they think of only appointments, task and contacts. PDA has evolve so much since the day I started using it. I do not blame them for thinking that way as PDA was mainly used for that purpose 5 to 6 years ago. Palm was so popular back then people generally refer PDA as Palm. How things have changed. I hope to bridge the knowledge gap with the simple slideshow I created below.

Buying a PDA is very much like buying a computer. It is all about what you install into it that makes it worth while.

Recent years, prices of PDA has also come down to a very reasonable range. Did you know that you can get a PDA phone with Bluetooth, WiFi, 2MP camera, GPS with Touch Screen for under RM1,000?

Hint: HTC P3300

Anyway, back to the functions of PDA… Did you know that

  • you can search through ANY words among your thousands of SMS?
  • you can sort your SMS like a chat window? Making it easier to reply and read your SMS instead of just Inbox/Outbox.
  • you can schedule a SMS to be sent tomorrow, next week, next month and even a year later? Never forget a birthday wish!
  • you can watch youtube movies clips anytime, anywhere?
  • you can do PUSH EMAIL on Windows Exchange Server? Arguably faster than Blackberry?
  • you can WIRELESSLY SYNCHRONIZE all your contacts using FREE Google Sync?
  • you can view all your friend’s current location with the latest Google Map/Latitude?
  • you can have all your Yahoo messanger, MSN, GTalk, AOL, Skype all launched in one application?
  • you can filter out unwanted calls/sms?
  • 90% of our customers are actually new users?

Leave your comments and share with me what do you use your PDA for besides the usual appointment and task?

Upcoming: Windows Mobile 7

January 16, 2008

Multitouch next step for Microsoft?

 

 

Windows-Mobile-7-Overview

 

Microsoft is currently developing Windows Mobile 7, the first revolutionary change to its mobile device operating system. Recently, I was given a document by a source inside Microsoft that details the touch and gesture plans for Mobile 7. This document is a confidential internal use only document, used to explain the plans for Mobile 7, and contains well over a hundred pages of designs, ideas, and changes to the way we interact with our mobile devices.

Below, you’ll find over 3,000 words detailing my notes from the document. I can’t publish the document here, at least not until after the product is announced, to protect my sources. I will provide the document to trusted journalists in order to share and show proof of this information. If there is anything I leave out, please don’t hesitate to ask and I will try to provide a screenshot or answer.

The document appears to be from the past summer, and some of the details may change before the product is announced. However, the touch and gesture plans appear to be set in stone, and will be the focus of Windows Mobile 7.

Gestures shown include in music or a slideshow, shaking the phone left or right to go to the previous or next song or photo, and shaking the phone in order to shuffle it. Here’s an image, which may only be a mockup, or it is showing us what Windows Media Player will look like on Windows Mobile 7, as well as the picture viewer:

Media-Player-Gestures

As you see, Media Player has an emphasis on album art along with other cool visual elements. Also notice the ever-present battery and signal strength indicators have been placed inside the soft key buttons at the bottom of the screen, saving screen real estate and making them a lot cooler.

Another gesture: When pressing the directional pad down in a full-screen media application, such as a photo application, you can move the device forward and backward to zoom in and out of the image.

The web browser will incorporate gestures for back and forward actions. Here’s an image:

Internet-Explorer-Gestures

Notice the differences in Internet Explorer. The interface is simpler and much nicer, with just an address bar and go button, the web page is a desktop version, just like on the iPhone, and the browser has tabbed browsing, used by gesturing through a series of graphical thumbnails. This is very impressive.

An example of the screen showing a transition from the device being asleep to awake:

Transition-awake

As you see, it’s a very nice and detailed, but subtle graphical transition. Microsoft never cared about transitions before, but it looks like Windows Mobile 7 will be different.

There’s also a part talking about allowing the user to “doodle” on the screen (their word, not mine), letting users draw doodles on the device lock screen, as well as shake the screen to affect the wallpaper (like making water run, or blurring an image). The iPhone’s lock screen is an iconic part of the device, and Microsoft wants to have a cool lock screen without copying Apple, so the plan is to give you fun things to do on the lock screen.

Here’s a screenshot of Outlook’s inbox:

Flick-scrolling

Also shown is flicking and swiping through an unnamed maps application, based on Windows Live Maps, and flicking based on the velocity of the user’s finger. Other types of finger gestures include the use of spinners and sliders, and unrestricted omni-directional movement.

A screenshot of panning in the maps application:

Map-scrolling

Those arrows on the sides of the screen are shown as being used in all applications
