Yesterday I walked into The Carphone Warehouse Shop just outside Baker Street Tube Station and got myself a Blackberry 8800. I am now finally fed up with looking for a phone that can do everything. I have come to the conclusion that getting the perfect phone that can perform as a camera, phone, PDA et..etc…is many light years away. After careful thought, I decided to go in for the BB8800.
I am actually surprised by what it packs. Anyway, here is a question that someone might like to answer. I have noticed that you can activate the GPS on the Blackberry and get a map of you location, or even get directions [I havent looked into this properly]. But my question is, are the maps stored on the Blackberry or are they downloaded in realtime to the device.
So after about an hour fiddling about with it, i managed to set it up to download my emails from my POP3 account [firstname.lastname@example.org] and also from my gmail account [email@example.com]. I am becoming increasingly reliant on emails, and getting that instant access to email is becoming more of a necessity. The Blackberry solves this issue beautifully.
I have also baught a 2GB memory card for it. What I will be doing with that will become evident soon.
