If really want to see if it'll work for you, I'd recommend the following:
- Upgrade to .75 ASAP
- Once you've upgraded, give it about a week of full-on office use.
It took me about a week to learn all of the new features, but the device was still really laggy. Then I upgraded to .75 and the lag pretty much went away. Since the upgrade, I have actually been able to use the device.
Typing quickly & accurately has been the biggest problem, but I've been finding that as each day goes by, I'm typing faster and more accurately.
Until about Tuesday, sending a message was a real PITA - to the point where I was sometimes sending messages from the desktop to avoid the frustration (kinda defeats the purpose of having a BB, no?). Things have only gotten better. Around 7:00 last night I banged out a pretty hefty reply on the 9530 quickly and accurately.
Moral of the story: If you're interested in making it work, hang in there. Otherwise, just return it and get something else.
