A little while ago, I switched to BlackBerry… without telling anyone!
I do miss my Sony Ericsson W910i that I ordered from Hong Kong, but foregoing email on-the-fly any longer just seemed impossible. 📧
When asked on Flickr what I thought about it, I replied:
It's pretty solid. I unlocked all of the carriers' themes and ended up choosing the Vodafone one, it's pretty neat. Applications I installed are Facebook, Google Maps, Opera Mini, Instant Messenger (AIM/MSN/Yahoo!), and MusicID. (the last two were downloaded from AT&T, for free; others from their respective developers' websites)
I haven't used my iPhone in months. I really like how this has an actual keyboard, flash for the camera, regular headphone jack (not needing an adapter), expandable memory, expandable functionality, and it's a bit more rugged and less smooth. (doesn't slip out of your pocket when standing up or sitting down) — Oh, and you can tether Internet via Bluetooth (like a normal cellphone) which was a huge turn-off for me with the iPhone. I need emergency internet from time-to-time, and any phone I look at has to have it.
… So yeah, I'm pretty happy with it!
I honestly really think it's an all-around good device. — Not too flashy, not too thin… yet not too impractical or ill-equipped. The only thing that I wish it could do is record short videos from the camera for emailing or uploading to YouTube. That, and it could offer a 3G connection instead of a 2G EDGE one.
When I bought it, I thought I had about a 50/50 chance of returning it as I have with past BlackBerry purchases. — However, this one I have been using and loving… so until the iPhone can catch up you can call me a “crackberry”. 😄
