The best and worst of BlackBerry App World

We strolled through the virtual aisles of Research in Motion's fledging application marketplace and found five great titles -- and as many clunkers.

Best: Evernote

This is the BlackBerry version of a nifty free note-taking service that's available for most common desktop and mobile platforms. Evernote on the BlackBerry lets you create notes in text, voice recordings, images, and general file downloads, and then it synchronizes them to your Evernote desktop (and vice versa). While the desktop app allows you to save Web pages as notes (by clicking on a menu item that the Evernote software installs), the BlackBerry app doesn’t support that feature. You can, however, view pages you've saved with the desktop app, and find them using the BlackBerry app's search box. The app and the service are free, so long as you keep within a monthly upload allowance of 40MB.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
