I’ve gotten tired of carrying things in my pockets. My usual trip out stash consists of at least my money clip, my cell phone, my PalmPilot, my reading glasses, and sometimes even a point and shoot camera.
It’s occurred to me that I could consolidate at least three of these (phone, PalmPilot, camera) into one device with a BlackBerry (iphone is out of the question for me. For personal reasons, I’m a Sprint guy). I also thought about the Palm Pre, but it currently lacks applications and I’ve heard some not encouraging things about the battery life.
I’d like to hear some thoughts on these devices and their everyday usefulness—and especially from anyone who uses a BlackBerry Tour—the model I’m considering. How long does a Blackberry go between recharges? Is it as useful as a PalmPilot for things like a calendar and todo list (two things I really need constantly)? Can you actually get used to that keyboard (I’m of course used to the PalmPilot’s stylus input)?
