    Found this to be most interesting.

    Since Marchionne already had 21 direct reports at Fiat Group, and must divide his time between Auburn Hills, Mich., and Turin, most management experts would call his method madness. But instead of becoming a bottleneck, he has turned himself into an expediter because he is always reachable. "They have access to me 24/7," he says, and when they call or e-mail, he makes decisions in minutes -- or seconds. While traveling, he stays in contact with one of his six BlackBerrys. "BlackBerrys are divine instruments," he purrs.

    Six BlackBerrys? Sweet!

    That is staying connected.

    Bringing his Fiat management style to Chrysler, Marchionne (mar-key-OWN-ee) believes his competitive advantage is speed. By wiping out layers of management and making decisions more quickly, he'll get closer to the market and bring out new models faster than his slower-moving rivals.

    Haha I have only 3 but 2 working.. The two I carry are the 9700 and 9800. Not quite comfy with the The Torch that's why I still am carrying the 9700.

    It would be interesting to hear iPhone/Droid fans' answers to this.
