Hey fellas, I just got my first crackberry. I got the Cingular 7100g as it was the first real phone berry I fancied. I'm already hooked up to the corporate BES and Im loving the instant email thing. I get emails on my crackberry before I get it on my outlook. I like the big screen for Web browsing as well. I was a bit skeptical about the phone type keyboard, but the qwerty pattern makes it a bit easy compared to typing on a regular phone.

Overall, it seems to be a neat little device.

Hmm... I guess not everyone knows to do a search before asking a question. No offense intended!

I wanted to hear from the original poster what he thought a Crackberry was.

I certainly remember reading the Wall St. Journal article when Walt Mossberg mentioned it and popularized it. I also have a copy of the fake Harvard Medical School research report on the addictive comparison between the BlackBerry, Crack cocaine and a placebo (a Palm).

No need for me to search. Or to be lectured by newbies. No offense intended.
