Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The BlackBerry will never be as easy to use as a desktop computer, but a number of tricks can ease the difficulties its size imposes on users. The following were tested on a BlackBerry Curve, but many will work on other models, too. For help with some of these, we used "BlackBerry for Dummies" and frequently pinged Robert Kao, its co-author, for ideas. (Lee Gomes, On the Road, Wall Street Journal, March 31, 2008)
