Okay, I need some help from the more technically-inclined of you out there.
I'm thinking of getting a Blackberryish thing, so I don't have to lug my laptop all the way to London when all I really want to do is check my emails. I have a pay as you go mobile, so ideally I'd like something you don't have to pay a monthly contract for (especially as I may only use it a couple of times a month), although I appreciate this might not be possible. Anyone got a email-readable thingy that they think is any good? Or rubbish? I don't particularly want to use it as a mobile phone as a) you look like a plum, and b) muggings.
PP is urging me to wait for the iPhone, but as that won't come out for another six months at least and will then almost instantly explode, I'm not convinced.
Also, in consumer news, not sure I'm going to be able to get a proper rucksack-travel-bag thing from the 200-year old leather shop (quote: 'I'm not sure he can really be bothered to do that sort of thing'), although it may have cost about a million pounds anyway - still might have a laptop bag made up though, as the leather is beautiful. So I'm going to wade through all those links people put up a while ago (and put them up in a new post at some point).
But yes, emaily things. Argh. Help.
UPDATE: thanks for the help, have made opening bids on a very nice manbag. And completely unrelated, but there's an acetastic mashup comp over at go home productions. Summery and lovely.
UPDATE 2: bidding went from £18 to £62. Too rich for my blood.
