    I don't even have Mango yet. There's just something about this, that I never felt with other phones. Now I know how Apple users feel =)

    Have you seen the new OS7 Blackberry devices? I think they're pretty damn sexy.

    I've had an iPhone for 2 years. It was and still is the most boring OS out there. For the first year that I owned it, I couldn't put my own background image. Since apple controls everything about that phone, it doesn't allow developers to have a lot of fun with the OS. At least with android you can get different launchers to make your phone different when you get bored, but with the iPhone, you can do nothing! It's the same boring grid over and over.

    The novelty of Apple products wears off, and it wears off fast. Then people are stuck with a phone that has a huge app store, and can't do anything else well.

    I still love my Ipod Touch 1st Generation though, and I do like Apple a lot, shame that means I have to use the Windows Phone Connector on my MAC which is terrible in all ways.

    I love the Iphone 4 hardware too damn much. If this had WP7 on it, it will be the sleekest cellphone on the universe.

    I hate the hardware. Who had the genius idea to make a phone constructed of two highly-breakable glass panes, held together by a single band of aluminum that blocks reception? I know phones aren't meant to be dropped, but come on, at least expect it to happen and make the phone a little more durable than that Apple.

    Well of course it's still a Blackberry, but this is a pretty big design change for RIM. People always say "RIM has been making the same phone for years," but hardly no one says that about Apple, who truly has been making the same phone for years. I'm a big fan of the new Bold 9900 and the Torch 9850, I may even pick one of them up.

    I'd prefer a Nokia E6 if we go into that form factor.

    I didn't see any difference between the two editions of iPads... Apple kept advertising it like it had a retina display, but it doesn't even have that! It just has "improved graphics."

    BB is great for a minimalist. Someone that doesn't want any apps, but needs a powerful communicating device.

    I think it just takes a specific kind of person to love a Blackberry. There's a large group of Blackberry faithfuls, so they must be doing something right over there at RIM.

    I've had my phone for about 9 months now, and I'm still loving it. I haven't kept a phone this long since I had a BlackBerry Bold 9000. But I dropped it for a iPhone after the 9 month mark. I plan to re-up with a new WP7 when the new hardware comes out, unless Apple blows things out the water with the iP5,which I doubt.

    I've never felt the Blackberry was all that for communication. What, exactly, is there to brag about when your messenger service only works with phones of the same brand? Yeehaw?

    Other phones do texting, e-mail, and the internet, just as well, if not better by spades. And texting these days is typically free in a bundle so... Exactly what advantage is there to BBM?

    If you're a business and you need a something of a more secure, modern walkie-talkie in terms of texting, then maybe the Blackberry is right for you. But honestly? It's so outdated. The screens are tiny, the keyboards are a waste of space, the navigation feels like a PC without a mouse, etc. About the only thing I can think of that Blackberry wins is monthly cellphone fees. Most places charge less because BBM handles a part of the data. Aside from that, I don't get it.

    I would have agreed completely with you, except the new OS7 Blackberry's are an entirely different realm for RIM. They all have touch screens, so no more awkward trackpad-ing about the OS. Also, BBM is more than just a texting service, it allows you to send all sorts of other stuff. It's just a cool feature. You can send your location to others, save groups of people into your contacts, and my favorite feature, you can see if someone has read your message yet, or if they read it and haven't replied.

    Plus Blackberry has always been famous for their antenna strength and their speakerphones, not to mention they have the best email client in the business. That is why it is such a popular business device. It connects to people, and does it well. Beyond that, there is no HUGE draw to the Blackberry.

    My $0.02:

    Over here in Panama, Blackberries have taken the market by storm. Almost anyone, from low-income people to high-income executives and the like are carrying BBs. It's been a couple of years now of this trend and all 4 carriers (we have around 6 million cellphones in a country of slightly less than 4 million) carry the latest RIM devices. People just LOVE, ADORE and WORSHIP their BBMs, it's insane.

    Android has started to pick up steam now, with a big push coming from Samsung and LG, releasing phones at every pricepoint (we even have the Galaxy S II! That shocked me).

    WP7, sadly, is not even sold/supported/nothing here. I show them to my friends and they are AMAZED, some even drop their jaws in awe at how beautiful, minimalistic and 'flowy' (haha) it is. It's so sad WP7 is not available here (on carriers, I mean; a couple of importers have the HD7), they are missing out on a growing market. However, I do hate to admit to everyone I have almost no way of IMing people, only FB chat (not even WhatsApp). We still have ways to go.
