Product Shot 1 The Pros:A lot more pocket-able than the rest of the BlackBerry lineup. Now comes with WiFi. Includes the latest optical touchpad.

The Cons:No full QWERTY keyboard. Requires a data plan like any other smartphone - best to get a more fully featured phone to better utilize this fact. BlackBerry OS - crappy browser, aging design next to Android.
