I am coming from a series of Series 60 Nokias (sorry about the redundance) and seriously considering a BB 8700 as my next phone (the Nokia E61 is also being considered), as I want a QWERTY keyboard. I have a Cingular 8125 I hate.
I am completely unfamiliar with the BB O/S, but have always seen all application icons/shortcuts on the "desktop". I was wondering if there was a way to create your own shortcut folders to organize items like you can in Series 60 and Windows Mobile phones. Thing is I can have 100 applications installed at any point in time and having 100 icons on the desktop doesn't sound very practical, especially when you have to learn all the little pictures, since you don't see the name of the application until you place the curson on it.
Which brings me to my next question... How is the application base for the O/S on the BB 8700? I am pretty satisfied with what's out there for Series 60. I've had at least 4 different POP/IMAP e-mail clients (ProfiMail being the most memorable), 6 instant messengers (IM+, VeriChat and Agile Messenger shine here), 4 Internet browsers (Opera and NetFront rule), several RSS readers, etc. By the way, this is the type of application I will be mostly using. Will I be able to find a good set of applications for the BB too?
Thank you all in advance!
