Blackberry's Tri-band smartphone

Mobile phones

Research in Motion (RIM) has added a new Blackberry to its line-up. Aimed at corporate customers, the 7730 triple-band ‘smart phone’ incorporates a large colour screen and a whole host of business-oriented features.

As well as being a phone, it delivers e-mail, SMS, web browser and organiser applications. Like other ‘smart phones’ from Blackberry it also boasts a push-based wireless architecture so e-mails instantly appear on the screen rather than you having to dial into the network.

The price of the 7730 has yet to be announced but the phone will be distributed in the UK by O2. Like its little brother, the 7230, the 7730 contains 2MB of SRAM and 16MB of Flash. The new model’s battery offers five hours of talk time and nine days standby time.

• Colour screen that supports over 65,000 colours
• Cradle-free wireless email synchronization.
• Integrated email attachment viewing that enables users to read important email attachments from their BlackBerry handheld (including: microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, WordPerfect, ASCII).
• Support for international roaming (on 900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS networks)
• A push-based wireless architecture that delivers messages automatically.

• A ‘thumb-typing’ keyboard and navigation trackwheel for sending and receiving email and SMS messages on the go.

  • After a long search, I finally found your site. My granny used to say, that you must never give up to reach a certain aim.
    So keep on going like I did it recently.

  • If the 7730 is a smartphone, then why do most of the users of this device still use cellphones? Probably because it is not a smartphone. Apparently some people seem to think that just because it has a cellular radio that it has to be a phone of some type. But this device is lousy for voice. It is a data-centric device and should be considered to be a wireless PDA. It is using the GPRS, not GSM.
