We bring you a check we ran at the Lagos State University, LASU, recently on the type of Blackberry phones they use and why.
Ekenimoh Prisca, Mass Communication
I use Blackberry Touch and I like it so much. It actually has very low memory but its okay for me. The camera is fantastic to take pictures.
I use Blackberry Bold 2 which I bought for 82,000 naira. It has lasted long without developing any fault. I pay subscription fee of N1, 400 every month. This enables me send messages for as many times as I want
Through my BB, I connect with friends and search for classmates on facebook. I check their lifestyle, know what they are doing at every point in time. Also, I get information on academics from course mates or school mates whenever I am not in school as well as during holidays, through networking.
Apart from my Blackberry Bold 2, I also use Nokia 5310 which is a touch screen phone that I use for browsing, the camera is 3.5 mega pixel which gives me clear pictures, it is durable.
Theophilus Amaechi, Microbiology
80% of our students here,use Blackberry phones no matter the type. Mine is Blackberry Bold 2. It is a phone that gives me the freedom to do so many things at the same time. I bought it for 48,000, I take pictures with it and print them and check email. Sometimes, I do my assignments by getting information on the internet through Google.
James Ebuta, Microbiology
I use Blackberry Touch. For me, it is not a status symbol though. I use it to keep my academic pursuit oiled. Through my BB, I educative as it teaches me things I did not know before.
At the moment, I use Airtel but believe me, its a mistake because they take my money any how.
Aderonke Balogun, Medicine and Surgery
I use Blackberry Curve 2 and it helps me so much with sourcing information for the internet. I usually go through Google. Another thing I like is the camera though I can’t see how many mega pixel it has but it gives me very clear pictures.
Blackberry Curve is my lovely phone and I use it for browsing, it is strong, portable and just okay.
The applications in it make me do a lot of things with ease.
I chat through Facebook and at times, I use it for my assignments. It also helps me know what is happening around my friends.
My phone is Blackberry 98100 touch and I bought it 72,000 naira. I love the yahoo MSM as I use it to connect with friends on facebook. It has 5.0 mega pixel camera and that leaves me with superb pictures whenever I take shots.
I use Blackberry Javelin. I love it because of its numerous applications such as the BBM, Pinging. It browses faster and it is a camera edge phone
I use Blackberry Bold2 for social networking. It helps me to down load information within a short time, for my assignments. I chat, Twitt, and the camera is beautiful.
