Chapter 1. Touring the BlackBerry Handheld > Anatomy of a BlackBerry Handheld

Anatomy of a BlackBerry Handheld

Most of the rest of this book will focus on the functions and the applications found on your BlackBerry. Before we get to that, though, you really need to be familiar with the physical features of the handheld. Things such as connection ports and the power button vary slightly between models, so the following sections will give you a quick introduction to where everything is and a brief overview of how the BlackBerry works.

Turning the Darn Thing On

The On button is cleverly hidden on most models. For all but the newest 7100 model, you'll find it in the lower-right corner of the keyboard. It is either silver colored or has an image of a sun or light bulb on it (see Figure 1.1). This button is also used to enable and disable the backlight feature.
