Comments about the Blackberry I got for work.

It seems to last forever, I've had it three weeks and charged it twice.

The Blackberry has some software that does that for you... Or you can use
the micro SD.

Got one keyboard with the blackberry, but it's a real one :-)

Blackberry has a micro-sd, only down side is, it's under the battery (what
prat thought of that!).
Takes a standard mini-b USB lead so you can just copy it over USB.
And it has wifi (the 8320 does, the 8310 has GPS instead).

The Blackberry is awesome, I love it.. It just works.
The OS is simple enough, and it's not micro-shite.
It opens word docs, excel files and PDFs (I've not tested others yet).
You can get media players for it (and play MP4/divx movies) and it seems
pretty nippy when it comes to executing things.
*IF* I ever go back to a contract phone rather than PAYG, I'd get one (the
8320) in a flash.
