I'm considering buying a cheap Blackberry for use strictly as a PDA (without signing up with a carrier).

Would it be deemed practical?

    Well, it should work as a PDA, so yes it would be practical. And if you have/get a mobile phone and your BB is unlocked you can always stick the SIM in it and use it as your phone too (depending on the model of BB).

    You can get it to work like a blackberry because it uses Intellisync which you can set to connect to your contacts and calendar, but why get a blackberry for that much where you can get a good PDA for 100 dollars and see it in color?
