Are there any Blackberry 7250 users that would care to share how they like
the device? I am especially interested in bluetooth headsets and how they
stack up and work with the BB. I have a Kyocera 7135 and need to toss it.
Too unreliable. I like the idea of staying with the Palm but is it worth
all that much money? From what I can see, it is going to be near twice
what the BB costs.

Thanks,

I have been using the Blackberry 7250 for about a month and love it. It
works fine with the Jabra BT-250 Bluetooth headset and I have software that
allows me to sync with my ACT contact software. The screen is smaller than
the one on my Palm Tungston, but it is much more versatile - phone,
calendar, address book, get email anywhere (not just where wifi is
available) and surf the internet on the go.

I live its design, but I get terrible reception on my Treo 600

I have the 7250 and my wife has the treo 600. Both on verizon. I had
the bb 7750 before this and she had the sidekick 2 and a mobile phone.
The bb is a more boring, secure and less breakable solution. The treo
is more attractive to the eye and has quite a bit of palm applications.
Both are about the same price. The bluetooth is ok on the 7250.
Quality is definitely not as good as a good wired headphone set and
seems to depend on where you are, interference etc. It is quite
practical though.

cheers
