Pros: shiny shiny, easy to use

Cons: not an iphone

My friends call me a tool for having a blackberry, but you know what?  I'm the best equipped in the box!  (OK, so that metaphor fell flat, but I really do get a lot of crap for it and this thing has proven it's worth enough that I don't much care what they say.)


It slices, it dices, it juliennes carrots.  I'm intimidated by the new and shiny technology that kids use these days but I picked this up pretty easily and went to town configuring it the way I want.  I love the incorporated GPS and that I can use this thing to get driving directions when I'm lost.  The camera resolution Doesn't Suck compared to an actual camera...from 3 years ago...  The web browser UI leaves something to be desired, but it's usable and reasonably fast, which is a pro over my cell phone.  The battery life is pretty good when there's no talking involved (4 days on a single charge of being rude and checking my email while I'm out on dates!?  SIGN ME UP!) but talking on the thing kills the battery life like no one's business.  Maybe 3-5 hours on a single charge?  But seriously, who TALKS on blackberries?  That's what cell phones are for, silly!  (That's right, I double-fist my electronics.)


The only con is this: THIS IS NOT AN IPHONE.  I think I would have preferred a device that's a little more meant to-browse-the-internet and...well, really, I have no idea what people do with iPhones besides browse the internet, check their email, and accidentally hit-the-mute-button-with-their-ear-while-talking-on-the-phone.  Which is pretty funny, by the way.  The blackberry is definitely not suited for slapstick comedy.


Also, I was pretty disappointed that I couldn't configure the UI to something much different from the inoffensive blues and the inoffensive fonts and the inoffensive bright-green-field-of-grass.  If I want neon pink font on a black background, I think I ought to be able to satisfy that demand.  I bet the iPhone does...
