You can get a 6230 on Ebay for 20 bucks or less (if you're a bit shrewd) that has the full keyboard and the smaller B&W screen, but is new enough that it's nearly as capable a device as the more modern RIM handhelds. Even though old, they are very capable PIM/Email/Phone devices, and without a hint of multimedia to get in the way!
