Planning on joining the Crackberry addicts and get my first Blackberry. As a loyal (for better or worse) Verizon customer, I have a choice of the 8830 World Edition, or wait a month or so and get a new Pearl. I've played with an 8830 that my friend owns. Nice screen and full keyboard, but I find the width awkward. The Pearl has a much nicer (to me) form factor (I refuse to wear a belt clip, so my phones go into my pocket. But, the smaller keyboard and Suretype looks like it might be hard to get used to, but it's also got a camera that the 8830 doesn't.
Obviously, I'm not going to get a ton of seat time in either before I have to choose one.
My useage, from highest priority to lowest:
Organizer functions (address book, notes, schedules)
*Never for music.
Anything I'm not thinking of? I'm leaning toward Pearl.
