I agree 100%. I have an ipod touch and while it is fantastic for watching movies and browsing the web, typing on it is horrible compared to the BB. I can't stand the on screen keyboard. I still can't type in a web site without mistakes to save my life on the touch. That is the main reason I have no interest in and iphone.

3G data speeds would be nice. Even with that though, I won't be getting one.

Another "If it had a real keyboard" vote here.

Though if Steve Jobs were smart and signed up BES/BIS to deliver mail and internet services to the Iphone I think it would make a killing.

Well the reasons I don't go with one are they are only through AT&T and they are to expensive to buy if you want it unlocked to work on your own carrier.

Honestly, if my company supported the iPhone I would have one in a heart-beat and get rid of my BlackBerry. Don't get me wrong, I'm quite happy with my BlackBerry but the only reason I got it (I had many Windows Mobile devices before) was because my company only allows BlackBerry devices to sync with the corporate server.

All of my computers are Apple and I just love how easy it is to set them up, as I'm sure is the same with the iPhone. But I'm also cheap so I'm not going to have a personal phone and then a separate business phone, and besides, I have a company account with Verizon so I would probably end up having to pay a higher phone bill if I went with AT&T.

One thing I do like about BlackBerrys is the BlackBerry messenger. I hate talking on the phone and with messenger I can talk to my store manager or marketing director without having to call them.

That's exactly what happened here.
Battery life (or lack thereof) is a killer.
It is a great iPod.

i have the option to get an iphone 3g 16gb in black... All i have to do is trade in my 8320 and that's it. It's locked to rogers, but that isn't really problem, at least i don't thinkso... So what do you all think?

Just to start, my 8320 is primarily used as a phone, organizer, and for the wireless... I don't have it cooked up to a BES or BIS because unfortunately my carrier (fido :( ) doesn't support blackberries with BES or BIS... So pretty much it's just a phone. So what dos everyone think? For what i use my phone for, is it worth it to trade my 8320 for a 3G 16gb iphone? I love my 8320 because of it's REAL qwerty keyboard, and i don't like how the keypad or none existent one on the iphone or it's extremely difficult process to replace the battery if possible. So is it worth it?

I have one waiting for me when I get in the office tomorrow (not instead of my BB, in addition to it).

Should be fun to see if everything I've read about it is true, or not.

I looked at one last night as I am wanting to sell my 8820 and get an 8310. Honestly it does nothing for me. I will stick with the Blackberry.

I rely too much on tasks,calendar and PIM overall.
