    Most likely that Iphone5 will have blinking light like in BB. Wat does it mean to potential BB9900 buyers?? I used to be Iphone user and have nth bad to say about it. Currently using BB9780 & waiting to upgrade to 9900. After this rumor, I'm in fix. This blinking light is one of the reason I'm with BB.....can't live without it.

    Makes no difference to me. I'll continue to use what I like and that is bb. A blinking light on an iphone is no reason for me to change. There are other things about the iphone that may be but I don't like apple for my own reasons and it is a good phone.

    No phone comes to comparison with a BlackBerry. Enough said.

    They will enable the flash on the back of the phone to blink for notifications in iOS5.

    So you will have to have your phone upside down to see the notification. LOL

    In your opinion. Really bb has had some not so stellar phones along with android and apple. Someone will always feel that what they own is superior to the others but they are all good phones minus some of the crap models and even some love their crap model like the storm.

    I will be getting a new phone by december or maybe even october and one of the things that i love with blackberry is the LED notifications. If i do switch to Iphone 5, im a little scared of the fact that i'll regret it and i dont wanna waste money on any mobile phone anymore.

    I believe it is the current iPhone 4 that uses the camera flash when the software has been upgraded to iOS5. The new iPhone 5 (or 4S or whatever they call it) will have a separate LED flash in a proper place.

    That's why I will never buy an Apple product. Apple also treat their company workers like slaves. I work part time at BestBuy and Apple is forcing me to take training courses that I don't even need. My manager at BestBuy refused to fire me. Apple wants BestBuy to fire me because I called Apple neo-Hitler style management.

    Also, Apple controls what you can do with their computers like Macbook Pros and iMacs that people are becoming slaves.

    I will never ever buy an Apple.

    ill admit im a mac convert, but thats only because buying a new laptop changed nothing as windows was windows and I want something new. as for iPhones, ive been there and done it, I dont want to have to upgrade yearly to keep up with its tech.

    as for unwanted training, I was told to train by Dulux to be a colour advisor and director, dispite me disputing that im colour blind ^_^.. but hay **, snot Green and Orange looks great.. O_O

    I will also admit I am a Macbook Air owner.

    I hate Apple. I am envious and jealous of their success and it pisses me off to see that isn't happening to RIM (call me a kid, I don't care).

    In my opinion, RIM and MS have some things in common. They both stagnated when the world (particularly Apple) was moving 100km/s. That's why now they realized the importance of having a quick responsive Windows (compared to the current one they have) and that's what RIM also realized to do is have a faster phone.

    I'm realizing this post is useless. Sorry.

    Ha ha... I hate Apple as a company. But their products are super awesome. I am a science student at school, but most of my marketing and business major friends agree that Apple is running like a Japanese company. FYI, Japan has the height suicide rate in developed countries and MOST suicides are result of work place issues. What Apple Inc is doing with their workforce is every close to what Toyota and other Japanese do with their workforce.

    Anyway, I hope the see 9900 soon on Telus. It would be great if it comes out BEFORE the school starts because that way I have time to play around a bit.

    Though a LED will attract most, it would take more to get many to make the move. I do use both and would welcome a real flashing LED. I would also like to see notifications completely done over, what they have now is pitiful and giving us the ability to repeat pitiful is more pitiful!

    I think the OP thinks that the IP5 with blinking led = 9900 DOA
    I am just too impatient to get the 9900 that I post everywhere it is mentioned

    if that statistic is based on a per capita basis then what your saying doesn't really matter.

    San Fran. is considered the gay capital of the US but in reality Burlington VT is based on population.

    Also if you look at companies like XOM and AAPL who is more profitable? I'll give you a hint it is not that oil company or any of them for that matter.

    I couldnt have agreed more with this. RIM has the potential on being as good as Apple but is messing it up. Being in forigen countries, I've noticed the Blackberry population is greater than iPhone and Android (then in the states, IMO). As for the topic in this thread, I wouldn't be surprised if Apple finally added a notification light. I'm an iPhone user, and RIM is making it harder for me to switch back to Blackberry.

    a blinking light is a nice feature. But will no way sway my decision of a phone and sell a phone to me.

    Something like that for me is so small.
