That's interesting that almost 10% of iPhone users carry a BB as their 2nd phone. I think it might be a bit more complicated then the desire to type e-mails on a physical keyboard. I think they should've asked why!
As I read the posts here stating that the linked story was unbiased, I have to say that although some parts of it seem unbiased, in my mind, more of it came off like.... in this corner, there's the iPhone (and the crowd goes wild) and in this corner (barely getting a nod) is that other phone.....BlackBerry.
Its as though for everything that was said about the new iPhone, the BlackBerry got an honorable mention. IMHO of course.
It's head to head. If I had to do it again, I would consider the iPhone because of the larger screen and I don't text/email that much through my BB Pearl. The lack of a replaceable battery sucks and having to be tied to ATT even worse at their data plan rates. The Bold on the other hand also looks dang good, just with the smaller screen. It would be a toss up for me. Good read, not too in depth.
