Of course! Actually things have been so quite here I was hoping others would chime in, even our pals at RW.

We have Ipods O'plenty but I have become numb to the myriad of devices and technology around me so give me a BlackBerry (preferably the Bold) and I'll live with the absence of 'Tooty Fruity'. I wonder if the IPhone can copy and paste yet. Hmmm.
Amuse- Those who don't have a BlackBerry want an IPhone. Those who have a BlackBerry don't want an IPhone.
I think they finally did add cut and paste but no multitasking. Wonder how you GPS with TomTom and get email/phone/music without multitasking. Admittedly, the blackberry bold meets all my needs for a phone/PDA except, it just doesn't have all that cool software. Probably would upgrade to a Storm 2 if AT&T carried it and it got decent reviews.
I don't listen to music on the BB and rarely on my ipod anymore. But I do like podcasts. The author of podtrapper recently did an article on BlackberryCool (or one of the BB sites), pretty lengthy. What I got out of it is that developing for the BB is extremely difficult as third party developers don't get all the API features especially for the UI.
Also, there was an article recently about 12% of iphone 3GS purchasers had switched from a BB. Not sure how accurate that is or how many people go the other way. This is best for users though as Android and RIM will need to keep pace. I'd like to see RIM do a better job of two way email reconcile, have BIS more like BES.
