Coming off another record quarter of sales and growth RIM finally blesses their faithful users with some Bluetooth functionality in this quad band device. Blackberry devices have always been known for their compatibility paired with the lifestyle of the on the go executive and the 7290 is no exception. With its signature BlackBerry appearance and feel, new additions from predecessors show RIM is online and reading the message boards regarding previous devices, but maybe not quite close enough. They may not have satisfied my every need, but they are definitely moving in the right direction by allowing some Bluetooth capability. With their subscriber rate growing I am sure we will see RIM catering to the non-business users even more in the near future who require even more browser capabilities and multimedia expansion a la the 7100 series.
