After much research and some procrastination, I decided to bite the bullet and buy a Blackberry 8700. I have been using it for three days now and it is by far much nicer than I ever expected. I thought I would miss my Treo 600, but really I only miss my Rocket Mania game.
- Great keyboard. It is easy to type quite fast and it it has a good feel.
- Bright screen. The screen is plenty bright and the text is easy to read.
- No buzzing! I can actually place calls without hearing crazy buzzing in the background.
- Edge network is great. I am enjoying the high speed network very much during my commute and whenever I need a quick web fix.
- Push email rocks. Automatically getting notified of new email is very handy…now I just need to pace myself.
All in all I am very happy with my decision to go with the Blackberry and I am excited to learn how to use all the features in the next few days. I also finally now understand why so many people are constantly stare at it 😉
