The primary reason I acquired a Smartphone ( a Nokia many years ago) was for that reason. The BB was my 2nd option back then, and I was very happy the way it kept my work and personal life very well organized. The best there is ... Contacts, calendars, tasks and notes. All well synced and an email service equal to none, at the time. I still have the BB' s (9700 and 9520) running, without any hitches except for the occasional and necessary battery pull.
For the last two months I' ve tried the iPhone and the iPad. And these two have taken the Mickey out of the BB. I now have the capability of organizing my PIM's across all my usable platforms ( work pc, home Pc, remote printing etc and all sync I do I'd wireless - this is a big plus for me.
