The one complaint regarding smartphones is that while offering more flexibility for the user it can also be more costly due to on occassion requiring additional third party software solutions to make up for what a particular device is lacking. Another complaint is that there really hasn't been an option to cancel a product subscription early when it comes to third party software. So before rushing out to purchase third party software to meet your requirements I'd recommend Rogers subscribers on this forum take a few minutes to review the Blackberry business solutions available from Rogers.
For example I found eOffice from Dynoplex is lower cost through Rogers than buying directly from Dynoplex or even from third party distributors like Handigo. The application can be directly downloaded to your device and billed $8.00 CDN per month which will be listed on your Rogers invoice as a premium service. You also have the option of canceling anytime so you're not locked in for a year if you decide you no longer need the service. Another good point is that since the software is recommend by Rogers their Blackberry tech support are familiar with troubleshooting questions regarding Dynoplex's software.
Another useful application is BBTV (Blackberry TV) which is new provided by Sona Mobile as an entertainment/news resource solution for Blackberry customers. BBTV is listed at $5.00 CDN per month and again will be listed on your invoice as a premium service. Okay so it doesn't provide the same experience as watching TV at home but it's great for those Blackberry users looking for a MobiTV alternative, are always on the go or just are sitting in the back seat with a lot of free time.
