Come to the Dark Side
Just yesterday my beloved wife... a confirmed applephile... informed me that when the new BB10 phones come out... she's switching to the dark side. This girl has had every iphone that's come out and 2 ipads.
Just one case... not a trend yet... but I have seen the apple cult look with envy when I show the videos from the BB10 introduction at BBW.
Come to the darkside! We have blackberries!

I'm curious what it is that makes her want to switch.

Probably Nova2 on the Dev Alpha

If you pay heed to a recent imore podcast, they mentioned a survey amongst their members regarding what they want to see in iOS. A surprising large number of people feel that iOS needs a major overhaul. A smaller number feels that iOS only needs some tweaks and add ons. And a much smaller number feel that iOS is fine as it is.
Perhaps if when iOS 6 arrives and still look pretty much like iOS 5, we may see more people switching over to other platforms. But of course, with Apple, its always so hard to guess what their next move is.

also seeign the different OS for their computers i don't think apple likes to change the layouts of their stuff. its been the same garbage for 20 years and is not likely to change, not to say windows has changed much either but their taskbars and start menu layouts have still changed, plus gagets and rotating background come standard and don't need other add ons or a windows plus cd to do.
point being apple isn't likely goign to change their IOS layout very much, just probably end up addign another stupid feature like Siri to give users the impression they have a wow factor

What I hate most about iPhone's UI is that I can't even view upcoming appointments without going into the calendar app. No previews for mail and SMS, no upcoming appointments, nothing!
BB is still is smartphone to go for full flexibility and functionality. I do agree with the previous poster on memory leaks and stuff, but sacrifices that I can accept due to the flexibility that the BB provides.Curve 8300 -> Curve 8320 -> Bold 9780 -> Torch 9860 -> Bold 9900 -> Z10
iPad 1 -> iPad 2 -> Playbook 64gb

I have a friend who is a major phone junkie. The other day, she posted in caps that the iPhone was boring her to tears. She's had it a couple of months, but it was driving her nuts, same look, day in, day out. No themes, no widgets, just that bland, frustratingly easy look. So she switched off and went back to her Skyrocket, and feels much better. (She dual carries, with a BlackBerry, too.)
