If you rely on an older BlackBerry phone, the BlackBerry Key2 is a worthy upgrade, but it will frustrate people switching from all-touch phones, despite some winning extras.
If you're a die-hard BlackBerry user, you'll appreciate the Bold 9900's pin-sharp screen, speedy processor and operating-system improvements. We can't see the 9900 creating many BlackBerry converts, though, especially when you can get some stunning Android handsets with huge screens for a similar price.
The Pearl is the first consumer-grade BlackBerry and it certainly looks the part. You should steer clear if you want a smart phone with every flashy feature, but if you've been tempted by a BlackBerry before and felt the devices were too chunky, staid or geeky looking, the Pearl might be ideal
It's a shame that the RIM BlackBerry 8310 lacks Wi-Fi and 3G support, but with its slick design, full Qwerty keyboard and excellent messaging software, the handset is still an impressive mobile for emailing. And while the GPS functionality might be rather basic for our liking, it's certainly a handy extra and makes the device even more desirable
The BlackBerry Curve 9360's design is sharper than a Savile Row suit and its Qwerty keyboard is better than ever. If you can endure the phone's failings, this offers an affordable entry into the BlackBerry brigade -- just check out the Android competition first.
The BlackBerry Q5 has a bright, sharp screen and its physical keyboard will certainly appeal to dedicated BlackBerry fans. Its software still leaves much to be desired though, the app store is miserable, and at £320, it's not the budget BlackBerry we were hoping for.
The BlackBerry Torch 9810 is a classic example of a company subtly upgrading an existing device. It offers myriad improvements over the 9800, but doesn't go far enough in our opinion.
RIM's Bold 9700 is the best of the BlackBerry bunch, keeping all the features we loved on previous models and improving on everything else. A better camera, smaller size and cool optical trackpad make it a worthy successor to the excellent BlackBerry Bold 9000. But, with more innovative phones catching up in the email department, the 9700 doesn't offer the freshest smart-phone user experience
The BlackBerry Curve 9320 is a budget option for BBM addicts and those who love the feeling of physical keys under their thumbs. No touchscreen, iffy build quality and a poor selection of apps mean you might be better casting your eye elsewhere, however.
The DTEK60 is a fast, capable phone. Its focus on productivity and security will make business users quite happy. As for the rest of us, the phone is rather vanilla.
The BlackBerry Q10's physical Qwerty keyboard is comfortable and the screen is bright and bold. It's let down, however, by a high price, some annoying software quirks and a barren app store.
O2's version of the BlackBerry 7100 offers a smart design and a custom main screen. It's a capable email-centric smartphone, although it lacks Wi-Fi and an expansion slot
Though Web browsing is not its forte, the RIM BlackBerry Bold 9700 is one of the most powerful and best messaging smartphones in AT&T's lineup.
The 6710 ably handles e-mail, PIM, and basic online tasks, but it has a low-res, monochrome screen and awkward navigation.
The addition of Wi-Fi makes the RIM BlackBerry 8820 an even more powerful communication device for business users, taking it beyond just e-mail and phone calls.
BlackBerry's first BB10 smart phone is a decent device, with a brand-new interface and some great software features like BBM and built-in photo editing. App selection is lacking, however, with available applications often overpriced or hard to find. Combined with software quirks, a high price and a terrible maps app, the Z10 is a reasonable first effort for BlackBerry, but not more deserving of your cash than its established iOS and Android rivals.
The touch-Qwerty hybrid Bold 9790 won't win many new fans but if you're bonkers about BlackBerry you might fancy its svelte lines and speedy menus. For everyone else, your money's better spent on an iPhone or Android handset, where you can get apps galore.
The RIM BlackBerry Storm may blow in a frenzy for Verizon Wireless subscribers wanting a touch screen similar to the Apple iPhone. However, there are bugs and performance issues that prevent the Storm from delivering its full potential.
