Beauty or Brains?

Would you pick a device based on sleek looks if it didn't pack a wollop? My cousin seems to have done just that. She spent the morning drooling over the features of my Ubiquio, but insists that her Blackberry Curve is so much prettier that she would never switch. I agree that the form factor of the Ubiquio is not for everyone- personally, I have loved this shape since I saw a scientific calculator for the first time. But the idea that she would sacrifice the seemingly simple pleasures of being able to handle Word documents natively, have a vast array of applications just to have a cute gadget in her pocket is unthinkable to me.
