Blackberry 9220 review a.k.a Davis – Continuing the series smartphone with BlackBerry OS 7, RIM launched Blackberry 9220 or to be better known by the codename Davis.
In the new BlackBerry lineup, Davis is a smartphone with a price tag of the cheapest. From this it can be assumed PULSE is there will be some features of the BlackBerry OS 7 is reduced, or even eliminated. Then, if Davis is still worth buying?
Dimensions: 109 x 60 x 12.7 mm, 102 gram, full QWERTY keyboard, trackpad, a plastic material; 3.5 mm audio port and the lock button on the upper side; volume control, mute buttons and convenience keys on the right side; microUSB port and the fuel on the left side.
Of physical appearance alone, PULSE can instantly feel the legacy of Gemini at Davis. Her face looks so similar and differ only in the 4 main buttons accompanying the trackpad. Three multimedia control buttons on the upper side it was on the Gemini, is now changing a single lock button.
For those users BlackBerry Gemini who intend to upgrade the device to Davis, the first thing to know is how the “poke” to open the back cover has been turned into a slide.
TFT, 65K colors, 320 x 240 pixels, 2:44 inches (~ 164 ppi)
Have the same dimensions like those of Apollo Davis did not make the screen capable of displaying images as well as the BlackBerry 9360 series. Because Davis has only real screen resolution Gemini level that automatically not as good as the Apollo screen shows the sharpness of detail, especially on the object when enlarged (zoom in).
You certainly do not expect Davis is a touch panel screen like most other BlackBerry gress is not it? Because if so, you must be prepared to be disappointed.
BlackBerry OS 7.1 Bundle 1137 (v18.104.22.1687, Platform 22.214.171.124)
In contrast to his predecessors from her family BlackBerry OS 7. Users can immediately feel the latest version of OS BlackBerry OS 7.1 without having to do the update.
Just a reminder, the issue of PULSE 226 have presented what are the benefits of these updates, which include Mobile Hotspot, WiFi Calling, BlackBerry Tag, improved features on the BlackBerry Maps, FM Radio and auto suggestion in the universal search feature. The bad news, the user must accept the consequences of reduced and even removal of the opportunity to feel some of these advantages for a cheaper price.
Automatic last only 2 points to the maximum that can be felt by the user Davis.
2 MP, 1600×1200 pixels, geotagging
Being in the lowest castes latest generation of BlackBerry make Davis into the final sequence, especially in several key features, one of the cameras. Davis has the ability to capture static images in the size of 2MP resolution only, not like others who have a 5MP.
Not only that number of features are also simplified. Choice of scene modes for example, if the others such as Apollo and the Bellagio have up to 11 choices, the only available option auto Davis and night.
With the limited resolution of 2MP and limited features, users can not expect a lot of the cameras Davis to produce quality images. Users will often find the noise in shots of Davis, especially during the lighting conditions are not supported. Plus, Davis has no flash for at least help when needed.
Maximum resolution VGA (680 x 480), 2.6 x zoom
In line with the camera features photographs, some video recorder capabilities are also removed at Davis when compared to the previous version, including image stabilization.
Connectivity and Browser
GSM 850/900/1800/1900, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP, microUSB 2.0, GPRS, EDGE; Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n
One of the benefits of BlackBerry OS 7.1 on BlackBerry Tag feature that uses NFC (near field communication). Unfortunately you will not be menemukannnya at Davis.
Users should also be satisfied by the data path 2G to surf through the service operator. But if possible, you can use WiFi to surf faster.
Li-Ion 1450 mAh (J-S1), Battery Saving Mode
Despite losing several factors of the brothers, but Davis did have its own advantages which can not be matched another new BlackBerry, even by the most expensive such as the Dakota though.
Davis provided the greatest power battery, 1450mAh. Compare to Apollo’s 1000mAh battery powered or battery-power-type JM-1 used 1230mAh Dakota, Jennings (Torch 2), the twins also Monaco and Monza Orlando.
With a screen that is also not bee nonsentuh and inferior specification, the power of it certainly can give the breath a lot longer than other BlackBerry.
Barely there, Davis has a Battery Saving Mode feature that automatically adjusts the settings on Davis to maximize battery power remaining.
512 MB ROM, 512 MB RAM
Compared to its predecessor which is a Gemini, Davis would have meant an increase in performance with a RAM memory support two-fold greater. Unfortunately for the storage media users must add a microSD external memory is not available in the sales package.

As with other smartphones of the latest generation of BlackBerry, Apollo is also equipped with the latest updates BlackBerry Messenger promising air-fuel experience more enjoyable. Especially with the increasing number of applications connected to the fuel available in App World.

BlackBerry seemed pretty confident with the two superior service BlackBerry Messenger and Push Email in real time, so it was only by relying on this alone could sell their products on the market. Davis one of the proofs, in the time of its competitors with the 3G support is in the range of the price tag of under one million, Davis instead restricted to the 2G network.
But it can not be denied that the fuel and an exclusive chat application capable BlackBerry-style push email that famous still some people an excuse to keep using a BlackBerry and turned away from other operating systems are on the rise. PULSE thus predict that this product is not likely to repeat the success of its predecessor, the BlackBerry Gemini.
