    Black berry for grams

    Advertisement



    Hello all i was wondering, my Grandma is looking to get a blackberry 8800 but i am worried that she wont be able to use it quite as easily as somthing else, she wants it because it is larger and easier to hold than a really small phone like the krzr but idk how easy the ui is i heard that he sidekicks have a very simple ui so is it anything like that?

    If her reason is the size of the phone/keyboard/screen, I'd go with the 7290. Full-on spread out QWERTY, so she doesn't have to learn T9, good, large size, and a bright color screen. A lot less money than the 8800 too, and equally as functional.

    Let her try the 8800, SK 3 and SK iD. If she doesn't like the 8800 try the SK 3 or SK iD.

    The 7290 although solid does not come near the 8800 in term of screen quality. The 8800's screen is bright and clear and the 7290, well, its not an 8800.

    The ui is fine on the 8800 too. Grams will be happy with the 8800!

    well see the thing is is that she recently had a book published so she needs to keep up with her emails and that is what bbs are known for shesends and recieves ALOT of emails every day so an sk3 or id i dont think would be the right choice which is why she was considering a bb but she isnt too tech savy so you can see her problem oh if you waant to know what the book is it is called "Fine Art of the Great lakes" (we live in MI.) you can buy it at barnes and noble and amazon but anywho this is about bbs right so would she be able to use a bb if she isnt that tech savy?

    The 8800 would be good for your Grandma. I think that's awesome that she wants to get a BB!

    Glad that I saw this, my g-pa just got an 8800. He really likes it. He couldnt believe that it really was as great as I told him.
