I got mine a week ago today, and I must say that I think it is by far the most useful phone I have ever had. I purchased mine as a replacement for my V710. I have a Dell Axim PDA that I barely use for any thing more then GPS navigation while driving, I find relying on wifi to be a bit of a pain in the butt.

The form factor of the 7130e is simply awesome, in comparison to other PDA/Smartphones. It fits in my hand nicely and has a nice loud clear ear piece.

I use the phone with my Jabra 250V and it works perfectly.

For my work, all of my daily assignments are sent to me via email, as well as any information I request from the company, this equates to about 10+ emails per day that are work related. The Blackberry Internet Service is great and easy to use, allows you to have you normal pop email as well as some other types sent directly to your Blackberry, with only about a 5 minute delay.

I was initially unsure about the suretype, as I always hated using my cell phone to text, because the multitap method of entry is too tedious for my tast, but the suretype does an excellent job and I found it to be about 90% accurate initially and it does seem to learn your typing habits, as it now barely ever misses a word. I can type on the blackberry at about 12-18 words a minute.

The menu functions are easy to use and the thumbwheel navigation works well. SO overall I would say if you are looking for a phone that you will be using to email allot on, go with a blackberry, if you want the gadget factor go with the Q or another PDA.
