Default 7290 or something else

Please Login to Remove!

I am seriously considering getting a 7290 but would like users opinion before I invest. I currently use a phone and PPC (HP 2210). My cell goes everywhere with me and my ipaq mainly used at work for PIM, calculator/unit convertor, offline rss reading, weather, passwords storage.
I also use the PPC for multimedia (photos and video) but am thinking about replacing my ipod with the new video version for that given that I can get more storage.
What I am wondering is if the 7290 is best for me given the following (or is there something better);
I plan to keep my cell phone (SE W800i)
I want something to manage all my PIM
I would like to have something that can connect wirelessly
I want to read rss feeds and get them updated regularily.
I want to be able to go online anytime I want
Access to email remotely would be nice but not essential
Having the full keyboard is also desirable

This is for personel use not supplied by work (unfortunately!!)
The 8700 would be great but it is not available in Ireland and we don't have EDGE anyways. I will buy the 7290 on ebay

Any advice would be great.
Obviously the other reason is I love gadgets and feel like a change

Hi, the 7290 is a great all around toy. Since you do not have the edge network then you are making a good choice. But that's just my 0.02 cents worth. What network do you have in ireland? Also check with your provider to see how much the BB data plan is, cause without the data plan all you have is a nice looking pda. Hope this helps, by the way I have a couple 7290's lying around if your looking. Good luck
