RIM designed the blackberry device to be a business phone from the ground up. it was never intended to be a mass market device, but they're gradually beginning to move that direction. regardless, the heart and soul of the blackberry is a business communications tool, and not so much a consumer smartphone.
the blackberry internet service was designed to streamline data transmission as much as possible, with all data being routed through a blackberry server before reaching your phone to optimize the data, making it more suitable for your device while stripping needless junk to keep data transfer rates low... which is especially helpful on slower networks like EDGE, and for those on "a la carte" data plans.
sounds like you're shopping for an iphone, blackjack, or palm device, and not a blackberry.
