One of my coworkers has one and likes it. The internet end of it looked pretty cool. I looked on amazon and it appears they make one for every day of the year. Verizon has one that can use its network. My friend's, needed a wireless network available. He laughed and said that that hasn't been a problem yet with so many unsecured networks.

I think his was about $200. I think it's nifty looking, but haven't felt too compelled to buy one yet.

Can't help you there, except to advise you to be careful about going with Blackberry to get that done.

I have a Samsung i730. Best thing since sliced bread. Several years back I had an Ipaq. It was ok and served its purpose. If you want it for email while traveling I would think you would want something like the i730 or a Treo. Some of the new Ipaqs have Wi-fi but then you have to find a Wifi spot to grab email.

My friends just has a plain old wireless. They have one that's compatible with Verizon though.
