My wife, uchi deshi and a number of dojo ka has black berries and on my one phone contract I'm due for an upgrade and can get a Blackberry Playbook (7.0" screen) tablet 16gb with a Blackberry Curve smartphone with unlimited internet access for about US$40 per month. My primary mobile account is normally 2-3 times more, so the BB deal sonds like it can be a bargain, but I'm not into Blackberry and getting my mail on my phone would drive me nuts with the amount of mail I get daily.
But I just heard on the Radio today that Blackberry in the USA is doing extremely bad with sales and people are moving away from it opening a can of worms for the future.
And in anycase, I spend too much time in front of a PC and the laptop is always around (13.3' Ultrabook) connected to a 17" monitor and keyboard for office use.
Sigh, difficult decisions - but maybe more being obstinate or daft or filled with trepidation at having to move into a new system ...
