Blackberry is superb for email but is not really up there with the latest Android smartphones if you want a multi faceted device.

I have used a lot of phones, Blackberry, Windows Mobile , iPhone and I would go for Androis every time - ' it does it all ' - and most of the apps for free ....

I know many Blackberry users happy with their devices when used mainly for email.

It's a business device trying to catch up with the consumer market new generation smartphones.

Android is the way to go - HTC Desire preferably.

It really does do it all Blackberry a bit one dimensional.

I have latest Blackberry Storm - still prefer HTC Desire

I've got a Blackberry curve 8250 and love it. For what I need it's brilliant, but as HXP says, it is really more suited for business use.

I certainly did not buy it as a fashion accessory. I must remember to tell that one to my mates tomorrow..."Hey lads, I really bought it because I'm fashionable" I might, or might not escape unscathed!!
