I am by far no BB expert as much as i would like to be. =P I am just testing a switch to my bold to see how its gonna work out for me. I have a work mate who is a die hard windows mobile fan i must say 1 month ago i was also.
let me get to the point

what makes blackberry specifically the bold? better than a windows mobile device? specifically the fuze? i haven't found anything besides screen res and sound. =[ sad i know. please help me out guys.. i am getting my arse kicked.

The security and efficiency of the BlackBerry e-mail push are unsurpassed. I get my e-mails to my 8320 before they get to my Outlook Inbox at work. The BlackBerry user interface is highly customizable, which I love. OS upgrades, which often include new functionality, occur frequently.

Hope this helps a little!

LOL! Wish I had more ammo for you...but the realy cool thing is that as consumers we have choice! I am a diehard BB guy, but I know many WM fans as well (my wife being one of them). And now Google has a platform as well.

It's always going to come down to what works best for YOU. And I for one am grateful to have options.

The WM will always kick BB ass for available software. It drives me nuts how little good software is out there for the Blackberry. it comes down to preference what you like.. there is not much that sets them apart.

For me the difference is primarily efficiency. I can do everything on my bb with one hand or occasionally 2 hands, but never need to use a stylus. All the shortcuts in typing emails, such as 2 spaces to end a sentence and place a period, holding down a key for a second or two to capitalize it, the auto text feature are all very efficient. Also, when entering web addresses, touching space bar the first time puts a @, touching it second time in the address adds a . to it. Shift and space bar adds a /. All of these little things add up to real ease of use for me. There are many more little shortcuts and applications that just make it so easy and fast to accomplish these kind of things. Like everything, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I've used WM, Palm and Apple devices, and bb best suits my style. The Palm was good for one handed/ easy operation as well.
