    Given the choice, would it be iPhone or BlackBerry?
    So why is there 'Other device' as an option?

    Anyway, I like berries more than apples

    If the iPhone took videos or had a half-way decent camera with a flash or if the Blackberry had WiFi or a decent keyboard, either of them might be in contention for a 'must-have' device. Without those things, their supposed killer features are just eye-candy.

    Or should that be iCandy?

    I voted "other device" -- If a leash was required in my life, I would prefer a stylish analogue one. Like this one: http://www.glamourdog.com/ban-lea-ram.html

    Hmm - 6 posts but neck and neck at 14 votes a piece..

    I actually looked at getting a smart phone recently so checked out our local phone shop. I was appalled at the quality of manufacture, the size (v.small) and tiny qwerty kb. I don't have fat fingers, but neither do I have digits like a Lemur!
    The sales lady surprised me when she told me that even the young people are complaining that they are getting too small
    They aren't made for short-sighted people either that's for sure.
    Not 'smart' at all then are they

    Yep try internetting on the mobile phone, takes ages to type in a URL.
    And you need magnifying glasses to read the stuff, (atleast I do).
    But if you don`t have to do much typing, it is great, all kind of info on the go.
    The best thing, the tom tom like stuff in it, I can finally find my
    way in any city now (more or less). And the camera in it is great and handy.
    and the radio ofcourse, and mp3 player.
    So it is that it doesn`t have an inbuild microwave and shower, otherwise I could\leave my home and live on the street

    But that is my nokia N95 and my even older sony ericsson K800i.
    Iphone never really caught my attention, and a berry I don`t know enough about.
    be aware, not to become a ware.
    I am trying to form a dime'ant.

    Just got an HTC HD. I am prepared to be told that the iPhone is better (and its interface may be) but it has a better camera, longer battery life, can edit Ms Office documents, and you can use it as a broadband modem ('tethering'). The Blackberry Storm has no wifi - a major weakness. If, like me, you wanted to merge a Palm and a phone, then it is worth a look.

    No Xara Xtreme on it tho!

    I have the HTC Touch Diamond. I am moderately content with it. It is NOT a $700.00 phone. My vision is not what it used to be and I have to put on glasses to read texts or tell what the hell I am doing on it.

    Its nearly impossible to use without the included stylus and you can forget doing about anything beyond answering phone calls while driving. (The Razr was much handier for straight calling).

    Not as many toys as the iPhone. It has WiFi and a 3.4 megapixel camera (that has a slow shutter speed and has to be held very still).

    Other than lacking WiFi, I think my wife's Instinct is a better tool.
