Well, seems that my 'opportunity' to get drawn into the sphere of Blackberry has come as I was recently offered a Blackberry at work.
Luckily, I managed to escape from being tied to my work email by declining the offer. Thankfully, it was not forced on me. Oddly enough, I was at least the fourth member of senior management, who didn't already have one, to decline the offer of getting hooked up to a Blackberry.
Not that it would have been very useful to have me attached to that device, as it probably would spend most of it's time ignored in a pocket or backpack which is where you can find my current mobile phone most of the time. The way I see it, my mobile phone is for my convenience, not for the convenience of others to find me.
