The Blackberry is a multimedia phone that allows you to playback music in addition to the regular calling features. Many of them include built-in media players that allow you to stream music in high-quality formats on the go so you do not have to carry an additional portable player. Downloading music on a BlackBerry phone is very simple and can be accomplished easily using the default syncing tool, BlackBerry Media sync.
