the BlackBerry commands respect and should be called so... plus the marketing potential of the trademark is fantasitc... it has nothing to do with a seed barring bush fruit (well actually berry) its so not what the word is that it sticks in your mind... like PDA has specific meaning because its an acromym but BlackBerry is simply a name.
Yes sometimes when they start goin off on how they cant talk on a 'phone' like that or it costs way too much money, etc etc!
My thoughts are : well for 1: its not yours, 2: I didnt buy it to TALK on it (I use a bluetooth earpiece ) and 3: dangit it wasnt YOUR money that I spent besides I gotta a nice lil discount on it.
They can stick to phones, I stick with my Blackberry!
I don't have a name for my BlackBerry. I should name it since a lot of you do name it I wonder what name would that be. My favorite name is David, or Dave. I should call it David. Oh my, that means I have been sleeping with David for the past month and I didn't even know it. I know David wakes me up every 4 am
And no, I don't get offended. If they ask me what phone I've got, I say "I have a BlackBerry".
I don't get offended. BB aren't tht commom here becos of the price so many people have never seen one up close before. Most times they think its a sorta unusual fone I got there.
I refer to it as my Berry
