Yes, my coworkers are using the Tmo MDA's, SDA's and now the Shadow, others use Wizards and Palm Treo's. Majority of ppl are gonna buy what comes from the carrier, especially upgrade phones over here. I returned the AT&T Tilt (Kaiser) because of the bulk. The Artemis is faster, especially after you put Meschle's Touch_lite 3.01 ROM on it.
Ive got a blackberry pearl refurb that collects dust in a drawer. The trackwheel on the Artemis is more responsive than the pearl.
