not at all. A) i have way too much invested in blackberry personally, (11 email accounts pushed to my devices) to ever consider moving away from blackberry. ive also seen too many broken iphones, and horrible typing on the device to worry about it. 16gb iphone is the same as the rest, a limited prosumer device that it flashy and shiny, nothing more, nothing less

I think the pod is improving and fast (faster than RIM). If it gets its email functionality sorted BB has a real race on its hands.

Weight/size as well...I won't go larger than the Pearl. Have you held an iPhone? Felt like a brick in hand to me...

I'd rather have a 16GB MicroSDHC card for my BlackBerry instead.

Bango. A guy I work with has one and I can type two times as fast as he ever thought about on his iphone. Not to mention hes always *****ing about his email. No thanks.

before CES a little birdie from Sandisk told me that 12/16gb by mid year, 32 and possibly 64 by CES. the 12 and 16 must be in final testing to be announced at CES, so I am assuming that the 32 and hopefully the 64 will stay on track as well
