The folks that I work around (well, at least the senior officers) all want to carry Blackberries. I agree they are a cool little device, but since I'm an "Exchange guy", I would like to see more people using Windows Mobile and Exchange Active Sync enabled devices (like my Motorola SmartPhone). After all, for full functionality of a Blackberry, Exchange users require the Blackberry Enterprise Server while Exchange 2003 has all of the necessary mobile functions built-in.
I think a lot of the draw of the Blackberry is that the devices have that nifty little keyboard. Using my SmartPhone for e-mail or any sort of note-taking is painful, at best. Well, that and the bosses always want what people at other companies (or commands have.)
Enter the HP IPAQ 6515. Not only does it look a lot like a high-end Blackberry, but it will actually emulate one. But, best of all, it runs Windows Mobile 2003, supports Bluetooth, 802.11, supports quad-band GSM and GPRS network access, a built-in GPS, supports SD cards, a touch screen, and has a killer video screen!
The product is supposed to be released soon. You can read more about it here
