Best Of Both Worlds? BB 9930 and ipod Touch 4th Gen?
I'm a loyal BlackBerry user, on August 21st I upgraded my Sprint BB Curve 8330 to a Bold 9930 and couldn't be happier, but I feel I'm missing some kewl ipod/iOS5 stuff, and I'm thinking of getting a 4th generation ipod touch to compliment my Bold 9930...so will I actually be getting best of both worlds?

I'm not sure. I just sold my Verizon BlackBerry 9930 and picked up a iPhone 4 32gb...
I had the same thought as you, but that was one more thing I had to carry with me...I made the switch to iPhone for device consolidation.

OK, 1st off I do not want to sell my BlackBerry Bold 9930, It's the best device I've had for what it does, I love the qwerty keyboard, but like i've said, I want somthing to compliment my Bold 9930, and I think the ipod touch 4th gen should do it for me. So shelling out $200 plus tax for an extra media device isn't to bad. Again, like the original post..."BEST of both worlds" IMO

I use to do the Blackberry Bold and iTouch 4 combo. It was a nice compliment to my, at the time, practically gameless Blackberry. Having a larger and clearer screen for watching videos and browsing the web was great too. I've since traded in my Blackberry for an Android device and now use it with my iTouch. Sadly, my iPod hasn't seen much use after my transition to Android. Unless I'm trying to create music on a handheld, I haven't really found anything my iTouch does better than Android. The advanced equalizers with compression make it a superior device for listening to music, Flash and a faster processor make browsing the web quite a bit more enjoyable, and most of the major iOS games get ported to Android as well.
It's still a great device and miles ahead of Blackberry's OS (something I never thought I'd be caught saying.. I was quite a Crackberry head).
My advice if you're looking for a BB companion.. Go to a BestBuy or comparable store and get a little hands on time with an iPod touch to see if it's really what you're looking for. Then check out a comparably priced Android tablet. It never hurts to try out all the options you have, right?

LOL I bought my Beatles "White Album" the same day it was released on CD in '87 or '88. It was numbered just like the original Album was in 1968. I have all my Beatle CD's stored at my Mother's house, and thinking of stopping over this weekend to pick them up and finish my Beatles CD to itunes this weekend. I think I should be able to get ALL the Beatle CD's to my ipod, it's got like 6GB left, and I've only used 750MB for five albums (#1's, Rubber Soul, Sgt. Pepper and two McCartney's Wingspan 2 discs and Choba B CCCP) I always wanted to put my enitre collection of Beatle CDs on an ipod, and now I'm gonna like I said, I have all the regular released ones from Please, Please Me to Let It Be and both volumes of Past Masters, and Beatles at The BBC AND all three Anthology CDs. So I'll be Beatle ready baby

I use a 9810 and also have an ipod touch. I don't take the ipod out of the house often, but I like being able to play the games, listen to music at home. I personally wouldn't want to trade them for a 4s as I prefer my BB as my daily driver.

EDIT: My bad, I didn't read the entire thread and see that the OP bought an iPod Touch (or that the thread was started in early November).:o

Exactly what I have, apart from that my Bold is the GSM 9900. I recently got an iPod touch and it's definitely great to have one. You can technically have your iPod touch connected to the net while out and about since your 9930 should have a mobile hotspot feature. While out, I do prefer to do some things on my iPod touch than on my 9900 lol.

I have a 9930, ipod touch 4th, and ipad 2. The only thing I find myself using the ipod for is music and it never leaves my truck. I could have a 1st gen ipod and wouldn't notice the difference. I sometimes stream pandora in my truck but I use my BB for that.
