I don’t know how familiar you are with the Blackberry handheld device. I am too familiar with it. I’ve been around them since 2001 when my gadget-freak ex-boss had it sitting on his desk in a non-functional state. These days they are everywhere. It’s a matter of time before the Blackberry or a device like it is the only device used for computing. My company like many others has many Blackberry’s deployed. We have a mix of 7230, 7290, 8100 (Pearl), and 8700’s in the field. Our users are extremely pleased with them. We have more and more being installed every day.
One reason that we have an increasing number of Blackberry’s is that we have a few users THAT MUST HAVE THE LATEST DEVICE before they get the shakes. Yes, it’s an addiction and I am their dealer. So the 8800 is out and I am getting calls.
Fortunately for me and unfortunatly for our users this device is exclusive to Cingular and we are exclusive to T-Mobile. Multiple versions of this device will be released. One of them is called the Crimson and is for T-Mobile.
BTW, so you don’t have to ask, I carry the Blackberry 8700. I use it for voice and data. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem right? Right!
