The single biggest thing I dislike about BB (well besides lack of apps), is the pain of menu, close, menu,close, menu, close. The other day I was editing a picture on my 9900 and after zooming in etc I had to menu, close 7 times to make sure something was not running in the background to kill battery.
Yes it's a small thing but if you had to do that a dozen times a day for various functions it adds up. iPhone is double tap home, long press and close (although you don't have to close it out unless you really want to, not like my BB where I forgot to close out of Tapatalk one day and my battery was dead in 4 hours).
I like some of what the menu system allows, but god it can be a pita sometimes.

Apple will decline, but that's the markets natural yo yo effect. look at the dates and stock, and compare them to RIM you'll see RIM degrade through period of "yo-yo" (market ups and downs) while apple "yo-yos" once before it's stock SHOOTS up to it's highly over valuated price that we see today.

Physical keypads are overhyped and outdated.

Unfortunately for all the people praying for the death of Apple, even 2-4 years is enough for them to destroy RIMs market entirely.
However, the analyst is basing his opinion on 1 factor, the loss of Steve Jobs. He's not predicting the end of Apple mind you, just a decline.
Losing Steve won't end Apple, their products, design and mass appeal will keep them going for a very long time.
The real question is, will RIM be able to hang on and hope to pick up any market share that Apple "might" lose.

Never use the LED on my S2.
Don't have a physical KB on my S2. Even on my Curves, it was a PIMA to type and I've got small hands.
Security? Meh. I don't keep anything on my phone I wouldn't show to my preacher. The only thing a thief or hacker would see on either of my phones are pictures of my horses and a few of my cats.God save us all. Go Sharks.
Yes, I am a woman and I like hockey. Deal with it.

Talk about the proverbial circular argument. Ask a question about what one likes about a device then immediately argue that down, showing that the whole premise is arguing for argument's sake.
I have SEVERAL BBerries, an iPhone, and two Androids. You know which one is most consistently THERE for me? The one I USED to derisively call an iToy. Guess what.....no more.
My 9930's current wee idiosyncrasy is to not allow me to make calls. REALLY?!?!?!?!? I dial the phone and I stand by for several seconds of chirping crickets, the silence is so loud. Will NOT connect. Oh yes, update the OS. I know. Load an unofficial OS, or a leak, or a hybrid. REALLY?!?!?!?!?
At this point, my go-to device is my iPhone.
Sad, that I should be typing this. I am a BB fangirl. But not so much of a fangirl that I'm blind to the fact that my "flagship" phone will not make calls without a prior battery pull. And not so blind that I don't admit that after spending close to $1250.00 or more on BB7 devices, I find my iPhone to be more dependable than my BBerries.Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy, and good with ketchup
Isn't it amusing how people who claim to not enjoy CB at all simply can't stay away???? It's because it's CRACKBERRY, the BEST BB site....

My iPhone is back in operation because of that OTHER idiosyncratic habit of the 9900 series - having a touchscreen and trackpad that stop working when you are outside. Now, I know tech people are joked about as living in their parents basements, but a lot of us actually venture into the sun on a daily basis.
For a phone held up as the epitome of doing what a phone should do - a tool not a toy (or so the slogan keeps telling me) - my toy phone is a heckuva lot more reliable.Crackberry super member with posting powers no one else has and sooper sekret identities. Or so I'm told.
