    Me for one. I use a Treo 600 and it's for word processing pretty much. I refuse to submit to be connected continually to that evil Crackberry. So who here resists the evil machine and wants to live a life of peace? :) :D

    I dont know, I think Im going the other way..... my contracts up for renewal and thinking of investing in a Pearl - looked great in the 02 shop today!
    Will have to do some research on it though; not even sure if i'll be able to access my work / play email with it.

    RIM - I know its an acronym, but goddamn thats an awful name.....:p

    I would never need something that advanced. My phone makes phone calls, and I'm happy with that.

    Not if I can help it - I'm reachable enough.

    Still considering an iPhone though...

    At least for me, I don't think it's so much about being overly reachable via email/phone/sms, etc. For me it has saved me a few trips (including me being at a movie). I just used MidpSSH to log into the offending server to fix the problem. Certainly saves me from having to go home or to the office to go fix it. It certainly saves time calling someone who doesn't know what they are doing and trying to talk them through fixing a problem you can't see for yourself.

    I love my pearl, but wow that 8800 looks quite impressive! Built in GPS!

    Who? Those of us without enough friends to warrant the cost. That and I can't keep a job long enough to use it for work :)

    iPhone please!!


    I've been a long time, getting the crappy free phone, knowing the iPhone would come one day. After the iPhone, I can see myself being a Palm man! Running Palm OS of course(no Windows Mobile thanks you!)
