I've got to go with the Blackberry here, if only from a durability standpoint. I managed to lay down a motorcycle at 70mph (don't try this at home, kids) with a blackberry on my hip and not only did the thing survive the wreck (I used it to call EMS after a bystander retrieved it from half a block down the road) it was in good enough condition that my (then) employer reissued it to someone in the field when I left the company. As far as I know it's still ticking along just fine a year and a half later.

I am a crackberhry user. I gotta say that I love my BlackBerry. It
allows me to IMAP to my e-mail, use popular IM programs (that some of my
coworkers use), and keep track of my calendar.
