Happy geek

12 February 2008

I’ve recently started work for a new client with a brand new team, and needed a far more capable phone than the old razr to help keep us all connected and me on track.

BB 8830
Verizon’s BlackBerry 8830 World Edition

After just a few days’ use, I recommend this lovely little unit. Small and light with beautifully integrated email (3 accounts and counting), always-there phone service, and a suite of PDA tools which easily synchs with my company’s contacts, calendar, and task list applications. Even has a fast web browser, though I don’t recommend casual surfing on a screen of 320 x 240 pixels, however high the quality.

I only had to add the data service to my current phone account, and the handset was discounted, rebate-ed, and part of Verizon’s “new every two” program, so they’re practically giving ’em away.

Yes, it’s a crackberry. Wanna make something of it?


On a related note: my vocation is keeping me busy, but a real post about Sharpsburg is coming shortly. Look for the 12th Virginia Infantry in Maryland in a day or two. Really.
