Simple one.

Have a configuration set-up for the alarm clock to display time in a LARGE FONT, perhaps full screen. I am using the Blackberry as my alarm clock when I’m on the road. Since I don’t get many messages at night I would like to see the time without squinting.

1 - More BlueTooth functionality - open it up to developers to be able to code some real integration with computers and/or other BT-capable devices.

2 - Ditto on the memory and mp3 player - but also even a camera!

RIM needs to add models eith a SD card slot for storage. Spread sheets, text docs, and pictures. That would be my #1 priority.

I will really appreciate a “only phone mode” when I travel abroad and I just want take advantage of phone capabilities but not email.

The Blackberry is primarily targeted at us business users. One of the easiest feature missing is the ability to quickly change profiles or mute the ringer when going into a meeting (e.g. switch on Treo handsets). A one button profile changer or hard switch is a no brainer.

Second suggestion is harder to do because it goes against the iden spec, but do away with the pull-out antenna, either with a built-in one or a replacement low-profile nubby antenna. If anyone has kids, you know what I’m talking about. Carrying a child while having your blackberry on your built yields an “ouch! daddy your phone is poking me”.
