'''Audio devices''' allow you to play or record audio, which can be sounds, music, speech, etc. These devices can be interesting for a forensic [[investigator]], as they can often contain not only audio files, but also text documents, images and so on.
  
The [[RIM]] '''BlackBerry''' is a personal wireless handheld device that supports e-mail, [[mobile phone]] capabilities, text messaging, web browsing, and other wireless information services. It is most commonly utilized for business purposes.

The [[BlackBerry OS]] provides easy access to applications such as e-mail, to do list, memos, address book, and many other features. With the newer operating systems 4.1 and later, composing messages are much more convenient by providing auto text.

[[Blackberry Forensics|Forensics on the RIM platform]] is complicated by the fact that this is a "push" device --- the RIM server will push device to the [[PDA]] whenever the PDA's radio is on and there is data available.

RIM devices also feature a remote self-destruct feature. This feature cannot be activated if the radio is turned off, of course.
+
 
+
Both of these features mean that you need to be sure that the radio is off when doing a forensic investigation.

+
Depending on the setting, entering a wrong password a certain number of times will wipe the device.
