Ya, I heard their messenger is pretty good, along with their data compression for internet use. They were suppose to be quite good at rendering speeds.

The lack of more non business orientated apps just turned me off. They wouldn't have things such as angry birds and whatnot eh?

They have a game called Bubble Birds, which is not exactly the same thing but is fowl related. See here: Link

On the direct topic of Angry Birds for Blackberry this was posted today: Link

Also feel free to browse around the market and see if there are any apps that catch your eye: Link

I've been using all kinds BlackBerry devices for over 3 years now and I pretty much know them like the back of my hand so if you have any questions feel free to PM me. (FYI, I currently own a Blackberry 9700 as my work phone, HTC EVO as my personal phone, and Ipod Touch 2G as my play device so I am quite fluent in all the OS's).

The internet compressing is AWESOME! My data usage is so minute compared to other smart phone users and I get the same experience. Blackberry has incredible support, the messenger kicks ass, and they have all the apps I have ever needed. I don't play games on my phone at all so it really doesn't matter to me their lack of games. Can't be productive with games on the phone anyways. If you think you are highly productive with games on your phone lets talk

I came from a BB Curve to the Evo.

Evo, great at browsing, web, screen, apps.

BB, can't say for certain with the new line up but I will say this, as far as intuitive and thoughtful design, battery drain, operation and overall simplicity to use and operate, BlackBerry is by far the better choice.

Placing calls is Soooooo much easier on the BB too.

I used to love my Blackberry, until I got an Android device. Now I'm glad and probably won't ever look back.

These devices do seem geared toward the casual person rather than strict businessmen now though. They look purrrrrdy.

They're not on the cutting edge for phone tech but these devices look really attractive. I think RIM has another successful lineup on their hands.

Such an upgrade from BB's current tech. They've improved in every aspect.

I've always had a soft spot for blackberries. I'm digging the bold.
