#1 - I don't use it or its competitor. If having your received html emails converted to text is a problem, you may want something like this. But you may not need it. I have no idea which is better, and that may be up to you, anyway.
#2 - Ditto the browser. You may be happy with the native blackberry browser (if you have a blackberry data plan). I think the browser is also a personal thing. Many swear by opera mini. I've tried it a fews times and always delete it and use the native browser.
#3 - If you are not into instant messaging, I would hold off. Look at who you are communicating with and how.
Bottom line, rely less on what others are saying is the cool must have and take an honest look at your needs. I expect you can use the out-of-the box blackberry until you get your feet wet, and you will get by fine.
