Default 1st review 9105

My review of the 9105 went live on the PC Pro website this morning. See here

I think it's the first ever proper review of the device - most other write-ups to date have been based on preview events with carriers or RIM. I actually got my hands on a boxed device last week (officially, before you ask!), and have been evaluating it for a few days.

To be honest, for the first hour or so I hated the keyboard. I'm too much of an old fart, and I love my qwerty keyboards. But I did get used to it.

I got a couple of typical texting teenagers to have a go, and they loved it, and were able to type really quickly.

Like I said in the review, it opens up a whole new market for RIM, but even for us old farts it would make an ideal weekend or holiday phone.

Hope you like the review. Feedback welcome, either here or in the comment box at the end of the review.
