Advice on which mobile device to purchase for syncing with ACT! V10/2008

I am looking at purchasing a new smartphone/mobile device and would like to sync to act!. I can not find any screenshots of what is synced, but would like all info to be synced including fields that i have added to act ( I do not just want customer numbers etc). As i am limited to the phones available through my service provider here are my options:
 
Blackberry 8707g
HTC P3600i
Palm Treo750
Dopod 595
 
Please help.

If you want to add custom fields, you really need to look at Handheld Contact - it will work with Blackberry or PocketPC/Treo devices running Windows Mobile 5/6
  • ACT!-like UI and terminology to reduce training
  • Up to 76 fields (26 pre-determined and 50 user definable)
  • Pull-downs for fields optionally sent to maintain data integrity
  • Notes, Histories, Activities created on device link to ACT! Contacts
  • Emails, Calls, SMS from device - history automatically tracked and synced to ACT! when sent from Handheld Contact
  • View (if allowed) and Schedule activities for other ACT! users
  • Administration determines which groups of contacts to be sent to each users’ device including private contacts
  • Automatically send contacts to a user when an activity is scheduled for them, even if the contact was not in their predefined set to receive
  • Central Administration of 50+ devices (even different types) to support use in workgroups
  • Ability for Administrator to erase ACT! data remotely if device is lost
  • The only ACT! wireless sync for Blackberry
  • The only PDA solution that works with Web based solutions for ACT!
