You can view Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents on it too. More BlackBerry smartphones.
Unlike the Energizer bunny, your cell phone doesn't just keep going and going and going. In fact, sometimes it decides to stop - at really inconvenient times, like when your parachute won't open (what a silly commercial). Enter the Energi To Go, a great $24 investment - or stocking stuffer - for motor mouths. It runs on AA batteries and adds up to 10 hours of talk time and up to 12 days of... more
Introducing the first Blackberry with a built-in camera and media player, the BlackBerry Pearl. Design-wise CNET says the slim Pearl is "the sexiest BlackBerry to date--it even gives the Motorola Q some stiff competition." The Pearl's features include Bluetooth, email, web browsing, and IM and EDGE support. Extra bonuses: A Micro SD slot for expanding memory, and a map application that provides local maps and text-based driving directions.
Behold the latest BlackBerry business phone, the BlackBerry 7130c for Cingular customers. It's got all the stuff you've come to expect from a BlackBerry: Phone, e-mail, internet, messaging with text and images, Bluetooth, MP3 ringtones, fast performance, and sleek design. You can even use it as a tethered modem to connect your laptop or desktop computer to the Internet, so you don't need to carry a wireless PC card. More BlackBerry smartphones.

It has Bluetooth but no Wi-Fi, and is only slightly heavier than previous Treos. More smartphones.
If you've ever lost your cell phone, you'll appreciate the genius that is the CellStik. Designed for most Motorola phones, this little device stores all your contacts, so you can transfer them easily to new phones. It comes with software that lets you add, delete, and edit contacts on your computer, which is much easier than doing it on your phone! And it's easily upgradeable to support new cell phone models.
Many cities are banning the use of hand-held cell phones while driving. But you don't actually have to "hang up and drive." With a hands-free headset, like the Jabra FreeSpeak, you can talk on your phone and keep both hands on the wheel. Never mind that you will look like you are talking to yourself - it's a lot safer this way. More hands-free car kits.
