After playing with the 7100t for several days, I'm becoming less enamored of this unit. I was first attracted to it by its size and the lack of a camera (which I don't care for), and the idea of having a phone and a PDA in one unit. But...
- My PocketPC PDA runs circles around the BlackBerry as a PIM.
- The breadth of applications for the Microsoft OS is far greater, prettier and useful, and navigation is easier.
- I don't intend to sync email, so... just to download a ringtone, I need a data plan of at least $20... amazing...!
- Almost every time I push the tiny green "talk" button, I also push the1/E-R key... odd design for regular fingers.
It looks like the BlackBerry is truly useful when used with BES... otherwise it's just average... Given my needs, do you think I'm on the right track, or is it simply a matter of getting over the usage curve...?
