    Yours is close to mine. I carry:

    * MacBookAir 11inch
    * Canon S95. Great little pocket camera that does good video. I have a Gorilla stand for it with magnet feet. Tiny
    * Tiny 250 GB USB powered backup drive. Slow, but good enough
    * iPhone4 (home #) and unlocked Android (fits full sized SIM cards)

    Now, I also often carry 2xNikor D90 with a 500mm F1.8, 18-200 VR, 80-200 F2.8 and a 300 F4 lens along with a 1.4 teleconverter. But I shoot airplanes. If I am not spotting, all this stays at home.

    Yeah, in the process of putting mine together as well. I think I have a lot more electronic crap than you do :-).

    Ipad with Zagg polished aluminum keyboard, doubles as case/cover.
    2 Blackberrys- one Verizon (work) one ATT (personal)
    No camera-phones good enough.

    MUST have-Bose noise cancelling headphones. Will sacrifice Kindle to take the Bose headphones. All fit into Tumi T-Tech with plenty of room for Ziplock toiletry baggie and change of underwear in case checked bag disappears, although I usually have a carryon.

    That’s a great bag, nice and compact. Does your kit stuff it, or is there more room? Would my Sharper Image noise cancelling headphones (poor man’s Bose) also fit in there?

    Why no iPad?

    What kind of cell phone do you have? Who is your US carrier and how do you handle international travel / calls?

    We have a nook (we had two until my son left his on the airplane SYD / SFO earlier this week). We really like it.

    disregard my cell question… I guess I did not read your entire post.

    Regarding the unlimited global data plan. Anyone who had the plan is grandfathered in so do not worry about losing it. In fact feel free to upgrade to another device as long as it takes the same plan. My suspicion is you are stuck with a Blackberry as they typically have different data plans than regular smart phones.

    I too carry a basic netbook upgraded to 2 MB RAM. It is sluggish at times but it does so much more than elegantly play solitaire which seems to be the main use for tablets. I keep everything encrypted and keep key files for the trip on two encrypted thumb drives I store in different places, so if the netbook is lost or stolen it is no big deal.

    I had the same BB Tour but with Sprint also on the unlimited data plan. Probably the worst blackberry ever. Luckily sprint has allowed me to keep my grandfathered plan when I upgraded my phone. It wasn’t easy, I has to work directly with their international department as regular customer service was clueless and even worse in store. I know Verizon has an international department you can call, they weren’t very good when I called them regarding an issue with my work phone while traveling but perhaps they can figure out how to let you keep your plan and upgrade to a new device.
