I love my BlackBerry. No wait, I hate it.

Last week’s SmartBrief on Workforce poll: Do you consider employer-paid mobile devices (such as a BlackBerry) a perk or a curse?

  • Perk — 52%
  • Curse –48%

As a group, you’re about evenly divided. My answer would depend on which day you asked me. Sometimes, I see my BlackBerry as little more than a glorified tracking bracelet, provoking me with every little buzz at all hours of the day and night. Other days, I appreciate the way it allows me to stay in touch without being chained to my desk. Whether you voted in the original poll or not, I would love to hear how you feel about these virtually ubiquitous devices.
