I don't like the look and feel of the Q. I have had a Blackberry 7280 for 3 years, and wanted to upgrade. I type a lot and use it for business, but found it too bulky. The Pearl voice quality is good, and I can finally hear the caller and fit it in my pocket. It also has an amazing screen, I will miss my big honking battery though - I could keep the 7280 on for a week without charging.22350 said:Don't do the Q, the battery life is riduclous even after I bought the "long life" upgrade for $65.
I have heard the pearl has excellent voice now, we all know their instat refresh e-mail push is better so Blackberry seems to be the way to go.
I am not happy with the Q
Yeah, I would say the APR chip is an easy choice between the two!kryptonkid07 said:I want the iPhone bad. But I can get the APR chip with that kind of money.
I don't have the use for such a high tech "smartphone" anyway. It's purely want over need.
I currently have a Motorola RAZR through Verizon wireless (I have to say it's the best RAZR compared to the others through T-Mobile and Cingular. The user interface is better.)
All I do is talk and occasionally text. I don't schedule meetings or watch videos or listen to music. That's what my old school iPod mini is for. And if I watch videos, the smallest screen i'll go to is the one on my MacBook (13").
my office is not always in the office, so it works for me............however, you gotta be able to turn it off................Crackberry is in the dictionary for a reasonBlueFrogPosse said:I don't see a need for any of them. I spend quite enough time at the office as it is; I don't want to carry it with me when I go home for the day. There's gotta be at least a zillion terabytes of real world out there. Go get some.
When I worked for a big office, I could see NOT wanting a blackberry. You give your 8 hours and are out of there, but now I have my own practice things have changed. The poll is for those who have or want.deviltailedfast said:You're missing the option for "none of the above". I bet a lot more votes would come in at that. It's all very interesting, but I have enough connectivity as it is...
And, unfortunately, the occassional poser who just loves people to see him/her emailing in public. I hate those guys.uncle dude said:When I worked for a big office, I could see NOT wanting a blackberry. You give your 8 hours and are out of there, but now I have my own practice things have changed.

I had the same concern. I have had the Pearl for a week now, and I have to say the phone is a huge improvement over the 7280 I had. It sounds as good as my wife's LG cell phone.jgo said:I have the Palm Treo. I haven't seen a smart phone yet that was a "good" phone. If you want to talk, buy a regular phone and stay away from the data ones.
