The 7230 is an older model. The model 7290 has real 'color' and is preconfigured to have more features enabled out-of-the-box (TCP/IP, full Internet browser, etc), making it more user friendly.
It's possible you may have set your expectations about the BlackBerry too high though, considering the use of an older BlackBerry model. Different people have different expectations. Group texts hasn't been a buying consideration of mine.
