Ok I am moving from Windows Mobile (5 years) to a BlackBerry 8700c. I found the FAQ here and I am trying to learn the lingo and what can be done on a BB. I just have one question, that I would like to find an answer to...

Is there a Personal Information Manager (PIM) like Agenda Fusion or Pocket Informatant for the BlackBerry 8700c? I now need email which is why I am moving to a BB (shocking huh) , but I also use my calendar, tasks and contact heavily. Agenda Fusion allows me to tie them together.

Thank you in advance for sending my in the right direction(s)....

First, thank you for the response... I read your signature and found the information I needed in the FAQ... Should have RTFM....

Agenda Fusion and Pocket Informant are like PocketDay and eWorks... maybe... Agenda Fusion and Pocket Informant are the top PIMs for Windows Mobile. It will be interesting to see how far BB software has come from the 2002 era I first saw.

Thanks... It should be fun to see what I can do with a BB... Just wish my company would let me get the 8300 or 8800. I like new and shiny toys.

I have used both Agenda Fusion and Pocket Informant in Palm and WM devices. The BB Calendar and contacts aren't as pretty as in those two applications, but it is very functional and easy to work with. If you want a PIM view for everything, the PocketDay is probably the best out there right now for the BB.

I think you will be fine moving from Windows Mobile. I've used it and Palm OS devices and find the BB very easy to learn. I really like the one handed operation and don't miss the stylus. You will be very happy with the new models. I decided to go with a unlocked 8700 due to my budget and not wanting to sign up for any agreement. Just added the BB service and I was on my way. I think the wifi models are coming out this year too.
