    November 24th or so it finally arrives for 199 with a 2 year contract. Luckily, my contract expired and I've been holding out- and this is only 100 more than the weaker phone I was going to get.
    I'll probably regret it afterward, as I never play with 'extras' much once the new wears off, but I do use my current blackberry as a portfolio basically, and this one will be much better for showing potential clients my works on the spot.

    Plus... I figure it'll kick the total sh88 out of the iphone, so...

    It will be Apple's best competition yet, but the fact that no one has seen one yet leads me to believe they can't afford to put it through too much scrutiny beforehand...

    ^there's the new t-mobile type one. G1? Its got the touch screen and all...don't know much else about it.

    And I'm trusting the name Blackberry to beat out anything Apple just simply knowing that apple makes overpriced junk, and blackberry actually makes good phones. Not so sure that the BB will be near as "cute" though...which seems to be what wins these wars these days.

    I wouldn't say Blackberries are good phones either, at least not in my experience with them.

    At my old job we called them brokeberries.

    At my current job we have them set up on a server for their emails and all that crap, they are generally alright so far.
