Remembering the BlackBerry 7730

Comments

We all have items from our past that we’ll forever cherish (or more than likely toss out in six months when we need to make room for more crap). One passionate blogger is holding the BlackBerry 7730 near and dear, and in a recent post, QWERTY’s his heart out about the overall design of this now-obsolete beast of a device.

The whole package is incredibly robust and hard-wearing, and I can only guess that a major reason to shelve it was than the bill of materials was too high. We’ve been running a few hundred of these devices in a hard-wear field environment since 2004 with a customer and most of them are still going strong. (The RIM people look at these like they’re antiques when we wave them about.)

Anyone else feel passionate about the past?
