BlackBerry Desktop Manager does not have the ability to enter data directly into it.
As a former Treo user, I don't miss the Palm Desktop at all. Futhermore, I certainly do not miss the device itself.
The stability and speed of the BB to Outlook sync just makes me smile everytime I use it. First of all I know that it's not going to hang or crash, I no longer have to wonder "what's going to happen this time?" I no longer have to wait. The BB syncs (3,100 contacts) Outlook in less than 8 seconds. The reliability of the BlackBerry platform is unsurpassed.
Everyone I know that switched from Treo to BlackBerry are 100% satisfied.
