You have mail, always, with a BlackBerry
By Yuki Noguchi, Washington Post | October 3, 2004

Washington lawyer William Wilhelm knows from experience that not everybody loves his BlackBerry as much as he does.

''I once had a date become apoplectic because we were in the airport terminal before vacation, and I did the one final BlackBerry check," Wilhelm said

The girlfriend was fed up with a relationship punctuated by Wilhelm fiddling with the wireless device to check hundreds of e-mails a day.

BlackBerrys make e-mail portable, available any time and almost anywhere. Airline delays become office time. An elevator ride becomes a chance to dash off a reply. A companion's restroom trip at a restaurant provides just enough time to close a deal electronically...
