Hi Guys,

Has anyone used a Sony M600i? do you know how well they work with BlackBerry or BES?

Never used it but it isn't rated real well on CNET by users.

I've got one (currently for sale) and while it's a slick piece of hardware as far as form factor goes, and also very well made, but the keyboard will drive you mad. The keys are laid out like SureType keyboards on the Pearl, but instead of SureType they're rocker-style keys. You press the left edge of the key for the first letter and the right edge for the second. Neat concept, but not my cup of tea. Predictive Type is available but far from a perfect solution. Note that it's designed for European 3G, being only tri-band 2G and lacking EDGE support completely.

As far as BB Connect, it seems like getting that to work on any mobile is hit or miss. Mostly miss. RIM's support is somewhat lacking wrt BB Connect. If your carrier doesn't have a specific version of BB Connect for the M600i you'll have to jump through hoops to get it working. And firmware upgrades for the phone often break BB Connect.

I messed with BB Connect on a Nokia E61i, a supported device, and could never get it to work. Note that you need BES to use it, not BIS.
