    This might seem a stupid question but what OS do Blackberrys run ? I'm after changing my 750 ( due to the Bluetooth problems ) and like the look of some of the blackberry devices but have no idea what software they run

    Thanks

    A2DP, "a true 3.5mm headphone jack", wma, wmv, 2MP camera..

    um woah! Seriously, if there was a sling client for BB I think i would like this.

    Edit: No 3G...perhaps it's not BB time yet

    Interesting... does it have a touch-screen? But really, it lacks the pizazz of a Treo.

    Wow I take back what I said, that could just be the killer right there. Who will carry it, and when will it be out?

    It's a full WM6 Professional (aka touch screen) device.

    It lacks the pizazz of a Treo? Are u kidding me? It's everything the Treo wanted to have and more.

    I was referring more to the phone's physical attributes than to its specifications (which I agree is what is/was required in current generation Treo's). You'll agree, it looks quiet dumb. Its one failing... no GPS.

    I hate web sites that insist on playing Euro music in the background. Even if I can turn it off I think it's poor design to play it by default.

    There, I feel better...

    According to the Expansys website, it comes with a stylus - so it's safe to assume it has a touch screen. It is projected to be available in the UK on June 20...

    Former long term user of the Treo line, then on to the HTC 8125/8525. Now I have graduated to the iPhone. For the first time since getting my first Treo 600, I am not constantly scanning the web looking for a better converged device.

    The Blackberry Curve and all Blackberry devices run the Blackberry OS created by RIM. RIM is like Apple where the software and hardware is tightly integrated, which ensures more stability and for corporate uses, this means the device always works. The Treo runs WM which means it is more robust and has more applications available to it, but sacrifices stability as different applications may interact differently.

    Actually, the Treo was created as a "Blackberry killer."

    As a Treo 750 and BB 8800 user right now, I am impressed by the Blackberry's ease of use and simplicity. Love my Treo's robustness and plethora of applications, including Sling.

    I probably see 10 times as many corporate people carrying BBs than Treos, but I think Treos can be credited with forcing BB as well as other manufacturers to recognize the importance of the convergence device. I remember the not too distant past when BBs were just mobile e-mail/paging devices.

    Both deserve credit for reshaping the landscape of the mobile phone industry. As far as I'm concerned, I could care less who tops whom as long as the competition forces them to keep innovating.
