To get the most out of the blackberry, you should have a blackberry data plan on your mobile service account. The blackberry really is not a standalone device; it is a compnent in an end to end solution and meant to be used with the RIM network.
See if your make has a mobile friendly web page and if it is compatible with the blackberry browser or an aftermarket browser such as opera mini.
The native blackberry applications may be all you need. Do some research on aftermarket applications if not.
I think blackberry maps is great. Many don't. Many use google's blackberry navigation app, and some use the paid applications that are more full-featured and provide voice prompts.
You will be able to use the mobile youtube site if you use a newer blackberry model that has a video player.
