Iâ€™ve been thinking about purchasing a BlackBerry for the past couple of years. I like the thought of accessing my email from places on the go but donâ€™t particularly like lugging my notebook, iPAQ, cell phone and everything else. Donâ€™t get me wrong, I like my Motorola Razr, but Iâ€™d love to have an all-inclusive device that doesnâ€™t cost an arm and a leg. However the previous Blackberries were too bulky, cost too much and didnâ€™t look cool. Well, Iâ€™ve been searching and waiting and I think Iâ€™ve finally found what Iâ€™ve been looking for.
