My contract with Vodafone UK (private) is due for an upgrade, so I was looking around for suitable handsets and was all but decided on the N80 but then thought that a blackberry may be a good option, even though I am not a corporate user. It seems that from purely PIM/Email perpsective it is better than any series 60 device, but I wonder whether i will be loosing too much in terms of camera/mediaplayer/wifi capability if i go for BB. Maybe those who had experience of using both can tell how they compare in terms of:
- web experience
- 3rd party sw
- general speed of the system
- viewing attachements (office/pdf/images)
- using it as a conventional phone i.e. without bluetooth startrek things, hate them but still need BT connectivity for the car
8700 for me will be free, N80 around £100, not that big a deal so I m not judging on price.
From what I can see so far, BB is a more focused device that does fewer things but better. N80 is more of an allrounder, and its nice to have a device that can do everything, but i wonder if it will be so compromised in some areas that it ll get on my nerves.
My usage is about 20-30 emails a day (pop and gmail), inetrnet banking, IM, rss, typical stuff really
any help/opinions are appreciated
