When you think of RIM products you think of their BlackBerry phones. While at CTIA a couple of months ago, I learned that there are also several BlackBerry branded accessories designed to work with your RIM BlackBerry devices. I had the chance to chat with a product manager for a few audio accessories and am really looking forward to seeing the BlackBerry Bluetooth Visor Mount Speakerphone. In the meantime, I was sent a BlackBerry Premium Multimedia Headset to test out with a Curve 8900. This headset allows you to both listen to tunes and hold calls with your BlackBerry.

The Samsung OMNIA HD has a beautiful 3.7 inch AMOLED display. The Nokia E75 has a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard in a compact package while the N86 takes the dual slider form factor to the next level. The HTC Snap was announced at CTIA 2009 and is the true successor to the HTC Excalibur/T-Mobile Dash. The keyboard is fantastic and the device feels great in your hand. The HTC Touch Pro2 is the latest full QWERTY keyboard device with an amazing display and some excellent features that make it a very compelling device for the power user.

Flip form factor mobile phones are very popular in the U.S. and until now these users were unable to pick up a BlackBerry in this form factor. The RIM BB Flip brings the power and functionality of the BlackBerry to this form factor, complete with a SureType QWERTY keyboard. The BB Flip from T-Mobile also supports WiFi and UMA for unlimited calling over WiFi.
