I've been lurking on the forum for a while and just got my 1st BB a Pearl two weeks ago. Early returns are very favorable. My decision to buy a BB on my own nickel to use for work will increase my productivity. I go into the field wuite often and get several dozen BS emails every day, that require a quick response. Usually these emails pile up in my inbox and have to wait until I get back to the office, home or airport/hot spot. With a BB I can fire back a (sarcastic) response right away. As it's my first BB, it's also my first experience w/ Sure-type. I am fairly impressed with how it learns. I find myself typing away without checking and it's usually (90% of the time) acurate.
Although the Pearl has the potential to replace my PDA (Dell Axim) there are a couple applications that I use that are not available for the BB yet. That may change over time as RIM has opened up the software.
I found this forum to be very helpful, too.
Thanks and I look forward to helping where I can.
