Be sure to check this video out soon because it’s going to be pulled from YouTube any minute now. This is a prerelease device review so it’s important to take it with a grain of salt.
While the outside will likely not change by the time it comes to market, the software will for sure. The reviewer is using an outdated OS, and the device he’s using doesn’t even come with WiFi.
Even though the OS is outdated, the responsiveness of the device is incredible. The reviewer can bounce back and forth between the homescreen and the icon page with almost no latency.
Another interesting feature is how the memory is broken down. There is Device Memory, Application Memory and Media Card memory. On this reviewer’s device, there is 149.9 MB of application memory (nothing to boast about), 1.8 GB of internal memory (couldn’t more of this have been used for apps?) and 14.8 GB of Media Card memory.
It was good to see the device have the new BlackBerry Messenger with the QR code system, but again, the reviewer is using an old OS.
Again, the device is much more responsive. The reviewer describes the typing experience as easier, but doesn’t go into details about the underlying technology that is replacing SureType.
