Blackberry or a Treo?

Anyone here using a Blackberry or a Treo & care to comment on what you like and dislike them?

I'm considering going to one of them as I killed my PocketPC (iPaq) & need a replacement. My cellular provider (T-mobile) is offering me a deal on either a Blackberry 7230 or a Treo 600 and I cant decide which to go with. I do NOT want the PocketPC 2003 Phone Edition phone.



1) How is the web browser on each of these? There are times I need to get on the net for on the spot research.

2) How are the e-mail capabilities of each? I currently use hotmail and gmail. I'd like access to both if possible.

3) Does the Blackberry have voice dialing capabilities? I have a motorola cell phone and it's one of my favorite features when driving/doing other things.

I appreciate any assistance & guidance.

If you go with the Treo you should really get the 650. It has a hi res screen, backlit keyboard and fixes a lot of the shortcomings of the 600. The new version of the Blazer browser is built on the excellent NetFront engine

I did not think that T-mobile was going to have this. I thought that only Sprint would.

Yes, its apparently a Sprint exclusive at first. Didn't realize that. I use T-mobile as well and was thinking about getting a Treo 650.
