I've read all kinds of literature pertaining to Blackberry devices since RIM came out with the extremely useful, attractive line of devices. I am a self-confessed techno-geek, having been exposed in the family business of telecommunications. I would get a new cellphone to try out, use and keep each month and it was an exciting time. Now that I'm in luxury cosmetics, I get perks totally different from before -- and I'd have to think twice, study every review available and get feedback from everyone I know to decide whether or not I should invest on a certain technology. After all, it's not like I have the same luxury of testing which phone is best for me or my purse. It's been almost 2 years since I got my Berry 8800. I skipped the curve series and am now in love with the Berry Bold after fiddling with my colleagues' new plaything. It's got the prettiest leather backing, a bright, almost high-definition looking screen, and while it seems a tad bit wider than my 8800, that spec fits the purpose. So apart from that, and all the other reviews I've read about it, I wonder, if someone would like to help me out and decide if it is the right phone for me.
