If you desire a seamless way to access e-mail that works while you're on the go, check out the BlackBerry Wireless E-mail Solution handheld from Research In Motion Limited. Featuring 4MB RAM and 304KB SRAM, the BlackBerry works with your existing e-mail mailbox and offers many PDA-like features, including an e-mail organizer and Intellisync synchronization software. (A PC docking cradle for synchronization comes standard.) It's a lot smaller than a PDA, though. Powered by an Intel386 processor, the BlackBerry operates on a single AA battery and weighs less than 5 ounces, battery included. An embedded wireless modem provides access to e-mail; a thumb-operated trackwheel and a menu-driven interface make sending and receiving messages easy. Another plus: If the device is turned off or temporarily out of coverage, messages are stored and then automatically forwarded later.
