Sprint Now Offering BlackBerry with Bluetooth

by Reads (11,024)

The BlackBerry 7250 is now available from Sprint PCS. This is the first Bluetooth-enabled BlackBerry to be offered by this carrier.

Bluetooth allows this handheld to be used with wireless headsets and hands-free car kits. However, it doesn’t appear that 7250 offers Bluetooth Dial Up Networking, so it lacks the ability to act as a wireless modem for other devices, like laptops.

Naturally, it runs on Sprint’s CDMA2000 network, but it doesn’t support the high-speed EV-DO Wireless Network Sprint is in the process of deploying.

The device sports 32 MB of flash memory and 4 MB of RAM. It uses the proprietary BlackBerry operating system, and comes with a suite of PIM applications, as well as a web browser and email software.

BlackBerry 7250 The BlackBerry 7250 features a 240-by-160-pixel, color screen, and a thumb-typing keyboard with a navigation jog wheel on its right side.

It has a swappable battery that RIM says offers either 3.3 hours of talk time or 8 days of standby time.

This handheld is 4.5 inches tall, 2.9 inches wide, and 0.9 inches thick. It weighs 4.9 oz.

The BlackBerry 7250 is being sold through Sprint business channels for $490.
