The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: T-Mobile to sell BlackBerry PDA that's cellphone

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: T-Mobile to sell BlackBerry PDA that's cellphone "In 1999, Qualcomm was one of the first to combine a cellphone with a personal digital assistant. The Qualcomm pdQ was big, awkward to use and cost as much as $800. It flopped.
Over the past five years, many cellphone makers have tried to improve on the converged device. T-Mobile USA thinks Research in Motion (RIM) has finally got it right.
The Bellevue subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom plans to announce today a new cellphone that includes RIM's BlackBerry personal digital assistant will be available exclusively in the United States from T-Mobile."
