HMMM. Are your sure you can download mp3 on that device. I thought you only download midi tones.

With no memory card slot, mp3 files will eat up your free memory so fast that it's not a practical idea to use the 7290 for music. It doesn't even come with a media player, so I don't think you can do it.

Default Ahhh...the 7290

The 7290 is an email typing speed demon. Best keyboard made -- ever-- IMHO. But that is what it was designed for, and defines its limits.

Enjoy it for its strengths -- the old fashioned RIM device which is a dedicated email/calendar/address/tasks/sync/secure communications phenom!

Camera, bluetooth, gps, video? That's for sissys. You're holding a real workhorse my friend.

What specs are you looking at? Don't trust anything that doesn't come from RIM:
