I think I may have found and answer to the Crackberry, at least capability wise. The Cingular 8525 pocket PC. It does pretty much everything but wash my car. Click here to read about the full capabilities of the phone.
One of the best features is the ability to access and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. You can’t do that on the Crackberry!
When you access the internet, the quality is great and you can actually read the information you need to read.
The phone itself is fairly streamlined. It’s not as clunky as the Crackberry and similar devices.
Now that I have one, I can just hear my sons now when they come home from school for Christmas break, “Dad, that’s really cool. When are you getting me one?!”
It still doesn’t solve the connectivity problem that comes with being a Crackberry owner, but it definitely makes things more fun.
Have you found a viable alternative for your Crackberry? If you don’t have Cingular, does your phone company offer something similar?
