It depends what you want. If you're happy doing only email, IM and a few other things, you'll be fine as the BB does them well. If you want a more solid OS with apps that you don't want to have to reboot, BB is for you (but honestly, I rarely had to reboot my Palm which was loaded with apps.) But if you want the ability to download attachments in email (must have for me), read office documents natively (must have for me) and find quality To Do lists/organizers and desktop client which are efficient, the Blackberry is definitely not for you. If you want cool new apps and mutlimedia, the BB is not for you.
