Twitter. Better than BlackBerry Messenger? The next SMS?!!

Of all the other site editors taking part in the Smartphone Round Robin, I'd have to say Rene gave the BlackBerry Bold and BlackBerry "lifestyle" the best shot, going so far as to even load up BlackBerry Messenger with every friend/colleague he knew or could track down that had a BB.
