Default Looking to change from Palm

Please Login to Remove!

I have been using a palm device for 8 years...currently have a Palm 650 with Cingular. I am most impressed with the reviews of the BB 8800. My biggest concern though is the PIM interface with my computer. Is the Blackberry Desktop 4.2 like the Palm Desktop? I keep hearing that most sync with Outlook. I tried was like going from X-box back to the old "pong" games on Atari. I cannot seem to download the blackberry desktop to see.

Anyone with information on how the 8800 or any of the BB interface with the computer would be appreciated. I do not want to loose the ease of use and sophistication of the palm desktop...but I do want a device (ie. 8800) that works... I am very tired of the Palm's poor performance as a device.

Any help will be appreciated.

The BB Desktop Manager is not a PIM in itself, it is the softwware or conduit through you sync and connect to the PIM of your choice, such as Outlook and others. You may find another you like better which the BB DM will sync with (I don't recall a complete list just now). Look at the RIM site for better details on the 8800, and feel free ask further here.
