Are you a PDA addict?

News Sentinel : "It�s a dead giveaway: the bowed head, a shift of the eyes downward to sneak a look at e-mail during a meeting. Call it the �BlackBerry prayer.�
Some BlackBerry owners are such heavy users of the cell phone/e-mail/ personal digital assistant device that they call themselves �Crackberry� addicts, referring to the highly addictive type of cocaine.Research in Motion, the Waterloo, Ontario, manufacturer known as RIM, reported in June that the number of BlackBerry subscribers rose during its first quarter to 3.11 million, up 24 percent from the previous quarter. RIM is the PDA market leader, with 20.8 percent of the pie as of March 31. Its closest competitor, with 18 percent, is Palm Inc., according to research by Gartner Inc."
