Do most students have these? If so what do they use them for (pardon my ignorance about this)? Is it worth the extra money to get one of these? I'm just trying to figure out what applications people use to see if it is something that is necessary.
I have a Motorola Q (which runs on Windows Mobile 6) and there is a version of Epocrates for it (that supposedly works on all Windows Mobile phones). Coming from Palm, I was surprised that it only included the forumlary and one of the other Epocrates programs that required the touch screen that Palm provided.Just out of curiosity (not to hijack this thread) but does anyone know if epocrates works with non-pda phones like LG Dare, Voyager, ENV2, etc? I am thinking of getting a new phone besides the I-phone or blackberry that would be compatible with epocrates.
With the blackberry, do you have to get the internet/email plan? Can you just get the phone minutes but skip the internet plan? As far as I've heard, that is not possible...is that right?I like my Blackberry Curve a lot. I would get a Bold but I'm not with AT&T. Avoid the Storm. Also Apple products aren't for me. Don't get a simple PDA; they're obsolete now without phone functionality and preferably some camera functionality as well.
Consider a Blackberry over a Q. It has far more functionality. There's a reason corporate America has fallen in love with it.
It's true that the Blackberries are more functional, but at least when I bought mine a few months ago, the Q was >$100 cheaper, and I don't need/want the added functionality of the Blackberry. If you'll use the extra functionality, the Blackberry is definitely the way to go.Consider a Blackberry over a Q. It has far more functionality.

I have a BlackBerry on Verizon and I pay $30/month for the unlimited internet/email data plan alone. I do not believe there is a discount; in fact, my understanding is some type of data plan is required if you have a BlackBerry, at least on Verizon.How much does the email plan cost for a Blackberry on top of paying for phone service? Can you bundle them and get a discount if you order both?
Also, forgive my ignorance, but what is a Q?
Are you using the full epocrates version that just came out? If so how do you like it?So many cool apps! My current preceptor has me look up info from epocrates while we're talking with patients. Also useful are the med cards, lange flash cards, epoymous, normal lab values, and many more. It seem sthat every week a new med related app pops up.
There is even a voice recorder app that I use.
