View Full Version : Browser on the 7230

Im with T mobile and thinking of getting my first BlackBerry. The price on the 7230 has come waaaaaaay down and Im on a tight budget. My question is about the browser capabillities. Im a truck driver and I need to be able to use google mobile maps, get my hotmail, search for shops and roadside rescue (google) but Id also like to be able to read the story sites I like and see images. Will the stock browser do that? Or would I have to upgrade? Would the 7100t be a better choice? I cant really afford to go up to the 7290. Any info would help in my decision, Thanks.

I know your on a tight budget right now, but I am still going to recommend you the 7290. The 7290 got more memory and little faster than 7230, which means you can install more apps like google maps.

I believe you cant push your hotmail email account to your BB's. unless you have a premium/paid service with hotmail.

gmail and bb is a much made in heaven when it comes to email though, its really fast.

Just wait and save a little more for 7290. Its $99 now with 2yrs contract with tmo. Maybe you can even get it cheaper with other online stores.
