Top three mobile application threats

You can scroll across several screens for lists of apps sorted into categories: All, Frequent, Downloads, Media and Favourites. But with BlackBerry App World looking seriously anaemic compared to the Apple and Android app stores, it remains to be seen if it will ever be an attractive proposition for developers.

RIM BlackBerry Curve 9360

The 5Mp camera does the job, but there's no HD video capture

The Curve 9360 features A-GPS, a decent music player, 3G and Wi-Fi connections as well as Bluetooth. The 5Mp camera spec sounds promising with its LED flash, image stabilisation and face detection, but noise soon creeps in with low light.

The flash is only good at very close quarters and there’s no autofocus. That said, picture quality is acceptable so long as you watch your light and take your time. Quality drops to 640 x 480-pixel VGA for video recording however – absolutely no HD option here.
