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: Slacker Radio



If you're not already a fan of the Slacker Internet radio site, this free BlackBerry mobile entertainment app might easily turn you into one. Choose from a slew of preset channels (current hits, classic rock, alternative rock, and so on), or create your own channel based on an artist or song you like, and then listen. The BlackBerry app also shows you album art for the current track, as well as the name of the track that’s coming next. On an exit screen, Slacker tries to persuade you to update to its paid service, but that's a small annoyance for a great free service.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
