In our first ever article for the series “Getting The Most From Your Blackberry”, Steven Bagdan a technology consultant from Southern California describes how he uses his Blackberry:
I am a computer consultant in Southern CA, and live on my Blackberry 7290 from T-Mobile. I have replaced (3) devices (over the years) with my Blackberry.
I used to carry a Motorola 2-Way Pager for email, a Pocket PC as an organizer, and a cell phone. Now I only carry my 7290 and I couldnâ€™t live without it. I use it as my phone, my email device, my calendar; address book, memo pad, task list, etcâ€¦ It has become an invaluable tool. My clients are all switching to the Blackberry and I am in process of moving a whole law firm to Blackberry. With the sync software available for legal calendaring software, lawyers can now carry their whole court calendar on their Blackberry.
I do play some games such as spider solitaire, texas hold-em, and cribbage all from Magmic. I have also signed up to beta the Wisespent a new financial management tool that syncs with Quicken (as seen on Blackberrycool.com). I also have and use a Motorola HS850 Bluetooth headset.
I guess one of the more interesting things I do, is keep track of client info (IP addressâ€™s, setup info, drive mappings, directions, etcâ€¦) with the memo pad, I have found that it is a very important piece of the Blackberry for me.
I could not live without my Blackberry, and I have several associates who feel the same. I have already had (4) clients switch their officeâ€™s from Treo to Blackberry.
