At the moment I have a Trio 700 with the Palm OS. I am thinking of changing over to a blackberry due to the cheaper data plan offered from Verizon. How much different is a blackberry, from a Palm or smart-phone type phone?
A BB will not store a lot of programs. I am a new BB user, love it, but was disappointed that I still need to carry my Palm while at work. (lots of medical programs). The programs cannot be run from a medic card like the Palm. Hope this helps.
The berry does not have a touch screen. That might be an obvious one, but I didn't realize until I had my curve and pushed on the screen and nothing happened... As a palm and then treo user I didn't know there were smartphones that didn't have touchscreens!
it takes some getting used to but i think most the people here are ex-treo users or ex-iphone users
my berry works great every single time i pull it out of the holster
and ive noticed that people here are divided about touchscreen, half love touchscreens and half hate them.
i personally dont care for it, but im sure that one of the new phones coming out with have it
hope this helps!
