Manufactured by HTC, the 838Pro comes with a sliding keypad. Itís fitted with a 360-degree jog wheel and a QWERTY keyboar. It supports HSDPA, GPRS, EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth V 2.0.

The C720W supports quadband GSM, GPRS, EDGE and Bluetooth v2.0. Running on the TI OMAP 850 processor, the C720W has a 128MB built-in ROM and 64MB RAM memory with persistent storage.

Additional features supported through BlackBerry Enterprise Server include wireless calendar synchronisation, remote look-up of corporate email address directory, triple DES encryption and IT policy enforcement and commands.

For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software integrates with Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Domino and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based wireless access to email and other corporate data.
