The B&W ones have some hardware problems.  I've returned mine
twice, but they mail me a replacement first so I've never
been without one for longer than it takes to swap the SIM card
and it doesn't cost me anything out of pocket.  The first time
the data portion stopped working and the second time the wheel 
stopped working.  I certainly wouldn't want mine outside of
warranty, so I'm getting a new color one shortly.
