Detailed review
This is a good business phone, with excellent BBM features for play. The radio is a God given feature from the Heavens. The keypad is excellent and receptive. And the personal hotspot feature is also cued to the current trends.
And thank God this is not a touchscreen. Touchscreen is not for business! Regular keys vastly enhances the accuracy and speed for typing.
