I'm an 8800 owner and I've always loved it. I love the functionality and simplicity that go hand in hand on it. I've loved the email capabilities, the apps I can get for it, everything.
So I bought myself a new toy over the weekend..... an Ipod Touch. I've never been a huge fan of the Iphone, but I did have an older Ipod that I used all the time so when it came time for a new one I splurged a bit. The Touch has WiFi so I went through the process of setting up my email on it and so on. So after using it for a bit I really hate to admit this but..... I enjoyed the email experience on it better then on my Blackberry! Using the Touch has left me wanting more out of the email on my 8800 (yes I'm on OS 4.5). I'm using IMAP through BIS, but it really made me aware of some features that the BB is completely missing! The biggest and most important one for me is the ability to organize and sort your mailbox into all the folders I have setup in my mail account. The BB can only view my Inbox.
Anyways, just commenting here. The only deal killer for me on the Touch/Iphone is that never in a million years will I be able to type even half the speed on it's keyboard as I can on my BB. I'm pretty damn fast on the BB and the touch screen keyboard simply doesn't work with my big thumbs. I definitely won't be ripping on the Iphones email capabilities anymore though.
So how do we get RIM to add some more capability to give the BB that edge again? Such as IMAP idle and the ability to view IMAP folders! Ah well.... back to dreaming about more features. Hopefully someone at RIM pays attention to forums like this (wishful thinking).
