Everyone uses their BB in different ways and for different purposes, so I'm sure some folks find it handy. I agree, though, that its practicality is somewhat limited. For me, it might be nice to have when I go on short trips during which I have to do some heavy e-mail and document drafting/editing, but don't want to lug around my laptop. Not that my laptop is particularly bulky, but it is an added pain at airport checkpoints, and also requires an internet connection at the hotel (actually, that wouldn't be the case if my BB was working as a modem, but I haven't taken the time to troubleshoot the problem on my XP machine -- works fine on my Win2K box, though). Aside from the travel scenario, I don't see much of a need/use for a keyboard, but everyone's situation is different.
