If RIM starts making one of these in the pager-size formfactor, I’ll replace my Palm and my phone. It’s been nearly a year since I had to return my Crackberry to my old company and I still miss it.

Update: Why do I call it the Crackberry? Because it was so addictive. Once you have one, you can’t imagine living without it.

I just had a thought. My blackberry ran on a single AA battery. I don't see any information on RIM's site about a different battery. One AA battery wouldn't last very long when powering a cell phone.

i saw in the news paper the other day that the U.S. Supreme Court may ban all Blackberry devices. now that's the last thing i want to hear. but blackberry users may want to check up on that.
