New Here - Good Time To Buy an iPhone
Every year my wife asks me what I want for my birthday and every year I really do not have a clue, except this year. I told her the other day that I wanted an iPhone for my birthday, which is in September. By that time the next gen iPhone will have been released and fully tested for bugs. What a great time to buy an iPhone.
I am currently a Blackberry user and since I use my phone for 90% email and web, 10% phone, the iPhone seems like a perfect choice for me. I know I am going to love the larger screen for web tasks. Now I can hardly wait for my birthday to get here. Phew! Three months and counting.

I'm about to start college in the fall and my parents gift is a new cellphone. I'm been thinking about smartphones a lot and decided that's the kind of phone I'd like. My school is wifi connected through campus.
I'm been thinking about either a BlackBerry or iPhone. I know that BlackBerry's are more business oriented, but I like the push email and physical keyboard. Browsing and multimedia however are not as strong.
I have a 1st gen iPod touch right now so I know pretty much most of the features of the iPhone. Plus, with the 3.0 update a bevy of improvements and features are sure to come. I have dozens of free and paid apps plus songs, photos, and videos. It's clear I appreciate my multimedia.
Should I consolidate both systems to make it one less device to carry? Or stick to a device that's new to me and will offer a different OS but great email capabtilities?

You've indicated that you like a physical keyboard, and that browsing and multimedia are not strong drivers. You also mentioned that you already have an iPod Touch. Going to an iPhone may not meet your needs.
Your best bet should be to go the stores and check the devices out in person. How do they feel when you hold them; too big; how will you carry them; are you getting the device as a status symbol to be seen?
You can't go wrong with an iPhone or Blackberry (even a Palm Pre). The device will cost a good bit of money and have a recurring expense (voice and data charges).

3G is not well distributed around my home but city wise, my college is well connected.
I know data plans will add $30 for a personal plan with BlackBerry's.
But since I do have an iPod Touch, and I don't mind carrying two devices, maybe I should just go with the BlackBerry? I'll be upgrading in the fall and I know they should be some new devices by them.
