    Re: comparison of 8100 vs. blackjack

    Blackjack runs on Windows Mobile 5.0, which to anyone who has used one of these devices, runs like crap. It freezes and lags, and the internet is not as fast. I have personally never tried the Blackjack, but I do cook my own roms for Windows Mobile. Also, WM5 supposed "push" email, is way slower that a BB. Just my $0.02...

    I had 1 phone that ran WM5 and I couldn't wait to get rid of it.

    I played around with it some before going with the Pearl...

    The BlackJack is small (as advertised), and retains the scroll wheel... but using the keyboard was a little annoying, and I decided it was a little too much in such a small space... I count 24 actual buttons on the face of the pearl, and 43 buttons (not count the OK button and 4-way pad around it) on the face of the BlackJack...

    The choice was simplified for me when I determined that there was no way I could get my work e-mail forwarded to a second account to use something like the BlackJack (we use Lotus Notes at the moment)...

    I also tried out a BlackJack before switching to the 8100..

    A few people at work had the BJ, and I liked what I saw in limited use with it, but when I got mine and started setting it up, I realized it just wasn't what I was expecting.. (At my lat job I had a BB 7105 so I was familiar w/ the BB interface).. I just prefer the BB over it.. the BB is easier to set up and navigate - I've said this in other similiar posts, but the Blackberry just seems like it was designed very logically, I don't get the same feeling w/ the Windows Mobile OS.

    The blackjack itself (physically) isn't bad, the keys are sorta awkward - especially the #'s.. You have to think more when using a BJ, with a BB it just all seems natural.
