These are all very different devices.
BB is best for email. Also most are great on the voice side. Stable as hell with good battery life. Plans are expensive.
MDA/PPC are the most robust devices available. Streaming audio/video, mp3, fast processors- also the most complicated. These need significant tweaking out of the box to perform well IMO. Phone side is secondary and never much to write home about...pdaphonehome.com is an excellent resource for support
Treo- If you were to get a new treo 650 with the latest firmware and a new SIM you would be in pretty good shape. These devices were a disaster at first but over the last 2 years have really better. BB like push email is available- but not quite as reliable and requires a $30 program and an IMAP mailbox that is a couple bucks a month. Treos will do more multi-media stuff than a BB but not quite as much as a PPC. Battery life is good, treocentral.com is an excellent resource for support.
No experience with the sidekick.
