  1. This article contains pretty much zero information. It doesn’t tell me what a cell phone is, nor what a Blackberry is, and it certainly doesn’t tell me the difference between the two.
    So if I came here seeking actual information, the closest this article goes into the subject matter are the last two Sentences, titled 1 and 2 respectively. Even that is painfully generic.

    A ” Blackberry can now be classified as a smart phone, which is packed with advanced computer features “…

    A Smartphone, but with computer features. What is this, a joke? What is a Smart Phone in the mind of this author, if not a handheld computer?
