I got a T-Mobile Dash a few weeks ago, and now I swear by it. Completely briliiant in all respects. Email, browser, PDF reader, word, excel, powerpoint readers, wifi, bluetooth, full Outlook sync with ActiveSync 4.2, great battery life, voice activated dialling, voice memo recorder. Quite brilliant.

I have a Treo 700w that does all the above, and I can also watch all my cable TV stations live. Great for watching a game while in a meeting.

I'm looking into the Samsung Blackjack.

Has everything you're looking for, plus, it's only .5" thick. It can be expensive ($450USD) if you're not signing a multi-year agreement though.

Good luck, and let me know what you find. I need one too!

I recently purchased the PPC-6700 from Sprint (Google 6700 and you'll see it's named slightly differently for each cell provider).

I have been VERY happy with it's performance, reliability, etc. Got a pretty good deal on it too. Brand new with a 2 gb mini-SD card for $350 on eBay; no contract required.  bigthumbsup

Honestly. No clue. I tend to use mine in the car or school building. And if it is raining i just keep it in my pocket.. But im sure a leather case would help that.

Together they have a good review of a large no. phones/pda.

Most of my friends who own a pda prefer the Palm or MDA from T-Mobile

also looking for an organizer

value for money the Nokia E61 and HTC S620 came out very good for keyboard, screen, functionality.

if you have more to spend the HTC TyTN seems a winner..

I have Motorola Q and it's working fine. Blackjack and Motorola Q are using the same platform and virtually identical. I think the Blackjack has a better music player or something like that. The demographic for Blackjack seems to be younger population because of the music player. I like Treo 700w because it has touch-screen and you can control the phone entirely only using one hand.

P.S. I've heard some horror stories about Motorola Q but I'm generally quite happy with mine. Big grin

With a 2 year contract, you would pay $299.99 in store for a BLACKJACK and get a $100.00 MIR. 1 Year Contract in store is 374.99 with a $100.00 MIR which makes it $274.99. No Commitment is $449.99 No Rebate

As for the Blackberry Pearl, No problems here. I've tried it.
