    Found this old Blackberry in the scrap yard where I work. Anyone know the model or the year? Does not even look like a phone, just a pda.

    BlackBerry RIM 857-957 / circa 2003-ish

    The data-enabled RIM 857 Wireless Handheld and RIM 957 Wireless Handheld each include email and organizer applications in a single wireless device.

    Size: 4.6 x 3.1 x 0.7 inches / 11.7 x 7.85 x 1.8cm (LxWxD)
    Weight: 4.8 oz/136g
    Display: User selectable 16 or 20 line display

    The RIM 957 Wireless Handheld is strictly business. It functions as a mobile version of Microsoft Outlook, and thats it. There are no colors, games, or any other frills. But for busy executives who need to be connected to e-mail all the time, it does the trick. The RIM 957 Wireless Handheld is strictly business.

    Research in Motions BlackBerry wireless handheld has been one of the most talked-about handhelds on the market recentlyand the press coverage it received due to it being the communication gadgets of choice for Al Gores presidential campaign certainly didnt hurt. But thanks to its full-function organizer, synchronization with many popular desktop PIMs (personal information managers), thumb-operated QWERTY keyboard, and, of course, wireless e-mail, the RIM 957 BlackBerry is more than just hype.

    You wont receive instant wireless gratification right out of the boxyoull need to juice up the internal rechargeable battery via the docking cradle (AC adapter included). Also, the activation process requires you to first register online and wait three to five business days for a confirmation e-mail.

    Specifications:

    Navigation: Thumb-operated trackwheel and ESC key
    User Interface: Intuitive icons and menus
    Memory: 8 MB flash memory plus 1 MB SRAM*
    Microprocessor: 32-bit processor
    Modem: Embedded RIM wireless modem
    Email Account Compatibility: Integrates with an existing enterprise email account or up to 10 personal/business email accounts
    Includes BlackBerry Desktop Software: Supported by version 1.6 or higher
    Works with BlackBerry Enterprise Server: Supported by version 1.6 or higher
    Network: 800 MHz DataTAC network
