The RIM BlackBerry 8800 takes some style points from its slimmer sibling, the BlackBerry Pearl, and sports a sleek black casing and a trackball navigator.

The BlackBerry 8800 is also thinner (4.5x2.6x0.5 inches; 4.7 ounces) than previous full QWERTY BlackBerrys, such as the BlackBerry 8700g.

A 2.5mm headset jack, a mini USB port, and a customizable shortcut key are on the left spine of the device. The BlackBerry 8800 now has an integrated media player so you can enjoy music and video on your device; a microSD card slot is located behind the battery cover.

RIM has done away with the trackwheel that was on its older devices. Volume controls and a customizable shortcut key now reside on the right spine.

Though the RIM BlackBerry 8800 retains all the e-mail capabilities that made it famous in the first place, the smart phone also has integrated GPS and BlackBerry Maps for navigation abilities.
