Blackberries are still pretty much considered as devices for the business world without entertainment features, mainly to be used for email, contacts & appointments. I'm sure RIM now realizes that it is becoming popular for just about everyone which is why the 8100 will soon be released for T-Mobile which will have a memory card, play mp3's, videos, etc. The Treo and BB are still 2 different types of devices with different operating systems and features. A corporate business will give their employees BB's, not Treo's.
