It’s Official, I’m on the Crackberry

blackberry-curve-8330.jpgAfter months and months of deliberation, I finally did the deed and purchased a Blackberry Curve 8330 tonight at the Verizon store.

I’ve been using a Samsung touch screen for the last year and have missed countless calls, can’t synchronize calendars, and can’t stand having to look at it to answer a call.

I’m a big fan of Apple, but I’ve been messing with my iPod Touch the last month to see if I could get used to the touch screen. I can’t. For those of you that say it gets easier, it hasn’t… I don’t want a phone that I must be looking at in order to operate it.

IMHO, it seems to me that touch screens have taken us back a step, not into the future.

As well, too many of my friends moved to the Blackberry. Chris Baggott, CEO of Compendium even got rid of his iPhone to return to a Blackberry. Adam Small, CEO of Connective Mobile, has been trying to talk me into a Blackberry for a while. And new friend Vanessa Lammers told me how much she enjoyed her Blackberry.

Heck, if President Obama can’t do without his Crackberry, I can only imagine how great the service and the product is. Tonight I’m just figuring out how to make and receive phone calls. As recommended by Adam, I downloaded Twitterberry so that I at least can tweet from it!

So… all you Crackberry-addicts, let me know your favorite Apps!

    Congrats on being a convert. I have to disagree with you about the touch screens. On Sunday upgraded my Blackberry to the touch screen Storm and love it. I find it exceptionally easy to use and having a full web browser is great.

    I will ad that two years ago when I switched to my first Blackberry I was telling my friend about it and he said he didn't know why people needed them. The day after seeing mine I get a call from him on his new one.

    Good for you! Congratulations on your decision!

    For twitter, my recomendation is UberTwitter… and that's all you need. The native applications are good enough to go.

    Enjoy your Curve… it's a hell of a device!
