To be honest with you Eric, the browsing experience with pocket IE is much better than on the blackberry. You should look into the i730. You can still get email, you have a full QWERTY keyboard, a screen that you can use a styilus on. The downfalls are the i730 is a bit bigger and is heavier. It also doesn't have as much battery life.
Actually, I've been considering either waiting to get the XV6700 when it comes out, or jumping ship over to Sprint and getting the PPC6700. It's a little bit smaller than the i730, and from what I've read it has much better battery life -- perhaps due to Windows Mobile 5.0. Also, the keyboard on the i730 is rather tiny, but the one on the 6700 seems very good.
If that page loads in 25 seconds, then most pages should load in under 10 seconds, which makes this a very usable browser. The 7100g was so slow that I quickly realized that it was only really usable for loading mobile-sized pages, and only other pages in an emergency. It was not enjoyable at all to browse normal HTML pages -- you could die waiting for it to load.
