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.

Welcome to the Forums, Philly Guy!

You will notice sometimes your Suretype will also learn your mistaken words (incorrect spellings).

What apps do you use that you need on the BB?

Right now I use a scientific calculator emulator and Pocket Quicken just to name a few. I know there's MS Office stuff for the BB. But, I don't feel like spending the money just yet.

Ah Quicken... waiting for that too.

I have seen a few scientific calc out there, search the Aftermarket Software forum if you have not already.
