    As I've said to you before, I wouldn't have one as a personal phone. Business phones they're great.

    the interface is horrible, given whats out there nowadays. Also their app provisioning is really lacklustre.

    I believe also to unlock them you'll need to install a new firmware - with all the joy that entails - could be wrong on that though.

    Their selling point used to be email support - what phone doesn't do that nowadays?

    Yet again, just my opinion there though. you might love them.

    I'd say if you know anyone who's got one go have a play - or see if there's one working in a phone shop. or play with a simulator BlackBerry - Smartphone Simulators

    What i'll say though is look through the maze of settings screens and you'll see what I mean.

    I have a fair few mates who've got them as they're 'the in thing' and regretted it once they've seen the latest iphone/android/etc device

    On Friday, July 16th, Google confirmed that the Nexus One will be discontinued and that the company has received itís final order of handsets from the phone maker HTC.
    So I wouldn't go that route...

    What about one of these http://shop.vodafone.co.uk/shop/mobi...h=1&cid=ppc-go
    I know it's not purple, but it's android for your inner geek and has had some very good reviews.

    Blackberrys do phone calls ok (depending on model the sound quality can be a bit rough), email well and central managment really well. Everything else is knid of a best effort affair.

    The phone hardware itself is good, sturdy and has quite reasonable battery life but alot of the features that make it compelling from a business standpoint like central lockdown, provisioning and configuration make no sense on a personal scale. As they are so configurable centrally using BES (don't get me started on my opinion of that software) and most were probably configured centrally by the corporation buying them rather than the user I think that the on device configuration is less friendly. Also given its targetet purpose of email the UI for anything but the standard workflow is less polished in my opinion.

    You also get stung extra (at least here) if you want to use any of the fancy email bits of the phone because you need a special plan.

    Overall they are good devices for what they do but as a personal all round device they are lacking when compared to some of the other players. It may suit fine depending on what you want to do with it but as suggested above the only way to know is to have a play with the device yourself.

    I had a blackberry before I got my HTC Desire. The blackberry was good, and for stuff like calls and texting was very easy to use, it had very good battery life and well built to handle knocks. What I didn't realise until I got my Desire is how poor the call quality was on it. I do miss not having to charge my phone for a week and the qwerty keyboard rather than the on screen virtual keyboard, but other than that the Desire blows it away, that's why I've recommended it's baby brother the Wildfire above.

    If you were thinking of going with andriod how about one of these http://shop.vodafone.co.uk/shop/mobile-phone/htc-tattoo which you can get fully customized covers for from here HTC TATTOO

    No idea how much they cost there though.
