The new BlackBerry is a quantum improvement over the old one. The trackball thingee is a much better interface than that click wheel (my thumb is feeling better already) and the addition of a distinct "menu" button makes things a whole hell of a lot easier. There are a few things here and there that kept it from being a completely smooth transition; the new phone is a lot more versatile than the older one, but by the same token not everything is in the same place. I did have to search far and wide for a theme that didn't make me want to claw out my eyeballs, but I found a really nice brushed metal one that is very convenient.
Oh, my G.P.S. has now been named "Wrongway Peachfuzz" after it tried to send Dan, Rachel and I into Manhattan and back when we requested directions to one Brooklyn location from another Brooklyn location.
