I would have to agree with trelawrence lets relax. He can write what ever he wants. I noticed he said his son has an I -phone. I really wonder what type of phone he is using. My guess is a desk phone with an answering machine.

This John C. Dvorak has got to be the biggest ***** ever. Read his bashing of RIM below!
I've read a lot of his articles over the years. He is a lot smarter than that. Very little effort on that one.

Why the hate?
Step back, look at it objectively and the guy has a few points. May have made them in not the most subtle of manners, but he does have points.
The PlayBook is seen by many as one of the worst tablets available. Its the tech product I most regret buying. Its been on firesales for ages, and unlike almost any other tech gadget, it refuses to sell out, cos no one wants it as its little more than a paperweight.
I sometimes miss my 9900 For the keyboard. Thats what people love about BlackBerries. Of course theyre not proper smartphones. I can do miles more on my Android than I could on my 9900. Thats why I cant go back. The hardware is better, in important ways like the camera, and the app availability means I can be travelling and find a torrent I want, and set it so its downloading at home even when Im at work. Thats just one example.
The most you will get out of a BlackBerry is quick access to a browser. Thats not good enough for a smartphone.
Thats what RIM hopes to change with BB10. Id like a smartphone with a RIM keyboard. Many people would.
But for now, OS7 devices cant be called smartphones when you look at what the competitors can do.

I suppose he could have taken the time to read the reviews those who have seen the device wrote but that would have taken an effort.
By the way, does he still write for anyone. I can't remember the last time I read one of his articles, if he is the guy I think he is.

I've always loved the way Dvorack gets people's dander up. I well remember his rants on how OS/2 would kill Micorosoft and Windows, and Netscape would win the browser wars. I still have a Dvorak simplified keyboard from the 80s. Even though he had nothing to do with the device (It originally came out in 1936) he pushed it heavily in the 80s-90s because of it's name.
I take anything he reports on very lightly.

what this guy doesn't seem to get is that hardware isn't the most important aspect of a smartphone, the OS that runs it is.Sent from my Z10
