BlackBerry is a line of mobile e-mail and smartphone devices developed and designed by Canadian company Research In Motion (RIM) since 1996.

BlackBerry functions as a Personal Digital Assistant with address book, calendar and to-do list capabilities. It also functions as a portable media player with support for music and video playback and camera picture and video capabilities. BlackBerry is primarily known for its ability to send and receive (push) Internet e-mail wherever mobile network service coverage is present, or through Wi-Fi connectivity. BlackBerry is mainly a messaging phone with the largest array of messaging features in a Smartphone today. This includes auto-text, auto-correct, text prediction, support for many languages, keyboard shortcuts, text emoticons, push email, push Facebook and Myspace notifications, push Ebay notifications, push instant messaging with BlackBerry Messenger, Google Messenger, ICQ, Windows Live messenger and Yahoo Messenger; threaded text messaging and a customizable indicator light near the top right of all Blackberry devices. All notifications and conversations from applications are shown in a unified messaging application which third party applications can access also. Many of these applications would have to be running in the background of other phones to be used. BlackBerry's push gives BlackBerry devices their renowned battery life. All data on the phone is compressed through BIS. BlackBerry has about two thirds less data transfer than any other smartphone[2], while supplying the same information.

BlackBerry commands a 20.8% share of worldwide smartphone sales, making it the second most popular platform after Nokia's Symbian OS.[3][4] The consumer BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) is available in 91 countries worldwide on over 500 mobile service operators using various mobile technologies.[5]

The first BlackBerry device was introduced in 1999 as a two-way pager. In 2002, the more commonly known smartphone BlackBerry was released, which supports push e-mail, mobile telephone, text messaging, Internet faxing, Web browsing and other wireless information services. It is an example of a convergent device.

BlackBerry first made headway in the marketplace by concentrating on e-mail. RIM currently offers BlackBerry e-mail service to non-BlackBerry devices, such as the Palm Treo, through its BlackBerry Connect software.

The original BlackBerry device had a monochrome display, but all current models have color displays. All models except for the Storm Series had a built-in QWERTY keyboard, optimized for "thumbing", the use of only the thumbs to type. The Storm 1 and Storm 2 include a SureType keypad for typing, and are the two models that are full touch-screen devices with no physical keyboard. Originally, system navigation was achieved with the use of a scroll wheel mounted on the right side of phones prior to the 8700. The trackwheel was replaced by the trackball with the introduction of the Pearl series which allowed for 4 way scrolling. The trackball was replaced by the optical trackpad with the introduction of the Curve 8500 series. Models manufactured for use with iDEN networks such as Nextel and Mike) also incorporate a Push-to-Talk (PTT) feature, similar to a two-way radio.

Modern GSM-based BlackBerry handhelds incorporate an ARM 7, 9 or ARM 11 processor [6], while older BlackBerry 950 and 957 handhelds used Intel 80386 processors. The latest GSM BlackBerry models (8100, 8300 and 8700 series) have an Intel PXA930 624 MHz processor, 256 MB (or 4 GB in case of the torch 9800) flash memory and 265 MB SDRAM.[7] CDMA BlackBerry smartphones are based on Qualcomm MSM6x00 chipsets which also include the ARM 9-based processor and GSM 900/1800 roaming (as the case with the 8830 and 9500) and include up to 256MB flash memory.[8][9] The CDMA Bold 9650 is the first to have 512mb flash memory for applications. All modern BlackBerrys support up to 32gb microSD cards.

Unique features so the main selling this phone is the Remote Play for PSP & PS3 owner should already know this one feature, because it was introduced by Sony since a year ago. This feature allows Aino became a sailing touch control stick that can be used to access the PS3 console machine and control it. Just as when using the PSP, multimedia content (photos, videos, music, etc.) which have the PS3 can be accessed, managed and removable easily from any location connected over a wireless network (Wi-Fi) at home or locally through a network Internet.

Although Aino was able to connect with the PS3, but this phone can not be used to control the game from the game running on PS3. Parties Sony Ericsson mobile phone design is not as mobile gaming, multimedia mobile phone but has a wide connectivity so they can access and play multimedia files from anywhere. Although in the package are a 3D game, but still too simple for game lovers weight. Perhaps this is enough to make you upset for the expected-capable phone and a Playstation Aino was made with half-half. Perhaps we expect in the next versions of the phone Aino can have the ability to play high quality games like the PSP.

At the back of the phone you’ll find a camera of 8.1 megapixel with 16x digital zoom, flash, face detection feature, auto focus and image stabilizer to get the catch and the maximum video recording. Images can be instantly improved results and also slicked up with a series of congenital image editor (Photo fix, photo flash, Photo light, Red-eye reduction, and Smart contrast). Applications that have been bundled into a device such as Facebook, Youtube and other applications such as Google’s Search and Map. There was also leaked that Sony Ericsson will add Twitter, and some social networking applications on some phone models of their latest output.

Aino is the first touch screen phone from Sony Ericsson that use the slider model. Touch-screen capabilities on this phone can be quite powerful to see on the outside there is not any ordinary button on another phone, so at least one button. But after being moved so slidernya row terlihatlah navigation and numeric keys are hidden on the screen by 3 inches with a resolution of 240 x 432 pixels, screen size is quite a relief to run multimedia files. Inter face well designed to support touch screen capabilities, a row of icons will appear at the time in fashion media, an intuitive media browser where the user will be given a clear overall view and direct access to content, menu display can also be changed to follow the position of phone when tilted. Impression that can be captured from mobile phones is a modern and minimalist, especially when slidernya closed, and the combination of black and white color with a glossy surface (shiny).

For mobile connectivity problem is fairly Aino very complete. The first is support for 3G GSM network to access data more quickly, Bluetooth, GPS and most importantly the existence of Wi-Fi. Because it had been mentioned in addition to access PS3 console, also a new feature called Media Home, namely an application which can automatically access and synchronize content from the PC application installed Media Go.

Aino phone comes with a variety of additional accessories such as a docking station that EC1000 is used as a place to store / set up the phone, can also synchronize media files with your PC wirelessly, and simultaneously to charge both the phone and the device is also a single package, ie bluetooth wireless stereo earphones MH100. Both have made the design look with color matching device. The strange thing of this phone is the use of a microSD type external memory of 8 GB to increase the internal capacity of only 55 MB, but only a Memory Stick Micro that is usually supported by the output of mobile phones Sony Ericsson. Aino phone plans will be present at the end of 2009 this year or the fourth quarter with a choice of colors Luminous Obsidian Black and White.
