    I intended to get a Bold as soon as it came to Verizon because I wanted the Google Sync capabillity. Now Google offers that for WinMo phones. Wooooot!

    If only I could get something like PDAnet for the Bold I would switch in a heartbeat.

    Don't get me wrong I love my Qs (Q1 and Q9c). They have been awesome phones. I may now wait until my And 2 upgrade before I switch to the Bold but the switch is probably inevitable.

    It's possible, but since their phones suck, maybe their humor does as well <VBG>

    There is one reason and one reason only why people are flocking to BB and iPhones - HEAVY ADVERTISING.

    Most people don't even know what a Moto Q is. Most will mistake it for a BB. Why? How many commercials have you seen for the Q in the last 2 years? Exactly... All I see on tv are the Bold, Storm, and the iPhone.

    You usually don't see any Windows Mobile phone commercials anywhere beyond the internet.

    I think its more of a regional thing than the wrong channel. carriers will push sales on different phones depending on which market.

    Couldn't agree more, all i see in my area is all the garbage on the BB Bold for Nextel these days, and the darn 3g iPhone commercials. As far as I'm concerned tho Nextel and the BB can take a flying leap seeing as Nextel servie is terrible in of itself. Personally you couldn't give me a BB to use as the OS IMPO is just terrible. And the Storm makes matters worse even being it is full touchscreen. However I personally am not a touchscreen fan either really had one for a month or so and sold it. Much ratehr have keys to press. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed Winmob 7 doesn't die which I highly doubt it will, and then to see a slick phone made by Moto sometime next year actually running WinMob7. But lord only knows if moto headset wil last that long, just gotta hope the new management can turn it around ASAP.

    I do see promise in the Motorola android phone, which is supposed to be released the second quarter of this year. It looks much better than anything BB has to offer.

    Yesterday a friend was complaining that he couldn't get his email because the blackberry (main, I guess) was having "issues". I told him that's what he gets for allowing ALL of his email accounts to be routed through Blackberry/RIM. Not an issue with Q9c/WM devices.

    Yep, that's one thing about BB. If its servers go down, you're blacked out until their up and running again. It's happened a few times, and entire sections of the country can black out.
