    I own two companies and handle 20 to 100 emails for my work and another 10 or 20 personal emails daily.

    I've tried my iphone, it's great but for long emails not so much, I've gone through quite a few Blackberries in the past... the old Bold 9000 was good, the 9700 as keyboard friendly.

    We use gmail often so I've considered trying an Android phone like the HTC Desire Z because of it's physical keyboard.

    I do use a mobile usb internet stick with my MacBook Air as nothing beats a computer for managing email.

    Please post your experience or suggestions, thanks.

    If you're looking for a phone, an android device with a physical keyboard would be a great idea. If it's not specifically a phone you had in mind, an iPad might not be a terrible idea either, as it has much more detailed interfaces for managing email, and a pretty easy to use keyboard.

    Definitely not an iPad, not good for typing, my iPhone4 is quicker.

    Any sort of laptop is the only way to go if you have a lot of typing to do.

    Well, how about a Motorola Droid Pro? It has Android, plus the keyboard (which is almost the same as the Bold) all in a candy bar style phone, so no need to open and close for typing.

    Just a suggestion, good luck!
