Agreed; a BlackBerry isn't even a smart phone... it's a mobile email client designed to work with massive mail servers that support Outlook or Lotus Notes. It's not smart in anyway, just receives email, makes calls and has a mini web browser.
They make phones now with wi-fi and mp3 players... way more practical for an individual. The blackberry is probably the best thing for a huge company, but I hate working with them. I also think they're surprisingly generic.
Right if you have to link up with only your work email that is behind a firewall that you cannot access through OWA then you should be a blackberry as long as your company has a blackberry server of course. Now you will barely be able to surf the web and dialup speed and have no applications etc...
Get a smartphone over a blackberry..Windows mobile is pretty neat
