    The truth in it is. Droid and Iphone still have YEARS to come before the have the same functionality and durability that RIM is putting out today, and last year even.

    Rim has a good 8 years on droid and a good 10 on apple. They started the game. And im sure they dont plan on going anywhere.

    As another user had put it, Blackberry is for Professionals, whereas Iphone *and droid* are for 12 year old girls* . Its all in the marketing. People that want stupid apps, stupid programs, stupid devices buy droid and iphone.

    People that want a functioning phone, that is sexy, sleek, well built and does what they NEED it to do, not lives in a fantasy world......buy Blackberries :-D

    I used BB since the 850.........i've owned almost every device they've ever had *except the pearl 3g with the trackpad, still want that!* and they've never let me down. Whereas i've also owned many upon many droid and Apple devices, which were constant let downs every other day. I regret spending hundreds on those devices. However i have never regretted a cent spend on a Blackberry :-D

    see this post is too one sided in my opinion. more than 12 year old girls use iphone and androids. apps are essential to some important professions like police, fire and doctors. just because blackberrys are good at core functionality like texts and email doesnt mean all other os's are for people who dont want to get things done.

    like i said core functionality. i have not found a better phone to email or text than my blackberry but other than that the other phones do everything else the same IMO. not to get into a os war but yes blackberry is good at the core things but the market has evolved so phones are needed more for core stuff. up until bb10 blackberry had no chance in heck on surviving. bb10 gives them a chance to get people back but not in the way it is right now.

    again thats my opinion.

    Apple doesn't make the apps, they approve them. All the actual apple accessories are decent. Aftermarket cases are a different story. My wife had a bedazled case on her 8530. That make her 12?

    No. But people who buy a phone based on popularity and care more about how much music and video games they can store on their phone over the actual functionality of the base product.....a telephone....usually are :-D haha

    Apple started with an ipod and now people buy iphones to not have to use an ipod and a phone. That was their big marketing ploy.

    Remember apple may be a big company and they do have a lot of games and useless apps but the #1 phone will get the 1st chance in apps.

    Popularity won people over and now because it is the top selling phone app developers will develop for it 1st.
