Thoughts?

I need something to check emails on regularly and also get onto my website whilst out and about. Which is the better of the two? Not fussed about music really but the GPS thing is handy. Anyone tried both?

I prefer my iphone as it doesn't look as 'geeky' as a blackberry...

To take a blackberry with you out on a night out you look like a complete nerd.

You take your iphone out, and it's like so what? It's my phone...

But also has the added fact that it's good at surfing the net and checking emails.

I find the way you navigate on the touch screen really fluid... you almost feel like a ninja moving stuff about and zooming in and out.

However, my mate insists that 'blackberries' are far better and I phone's 'SUCK'.

Got a windows mobile device for work, checking email etc, Was playing on a blackberry this week and i wasn't impressed really, Keyboard felt wrong (used to having a qwerty keyboard) and the little ball didn't feel very smooth to use. Don't really no much about the I Phones though

3g blackberry phones are awesome.

i love my 8310, satnav, 2 really good web browsers, battery life very good, can personalise everything.

the bold handset is stunning. fast processor, looks really good.

It was when they were wanting rid of old stock before the 3g came out, they pulled a fast one with that.

Yeh but people still had to pay contract for that john

unlucky people.

We're talking about the fact we got it for 169 without contract (no o2 deal) it was just everyone unlocked them.

I also don't care about not having 3g (as my sim card doesn't have it on the policy anyway) and the gps sounds useless from the reviews I've read.
