    IF you want to love having a BlackBerry Get the 9930, or the 9850,

    The 9930 being the best PlayBook Companion

    I cannot fault or blame anyone for thinking about jumping ship so by all means jump ship if you are having smart smartphone envy... but take a long hard look at the top of the line android phones before you remotely consider an iphone... a screen size of >= 4.3" eliminates the typing errors and Android, with its widgets, is a way more useable os.

    I believe in jumpers....I remember an incident back in the day when a fellow student pilot at Fort Wolters, Texas climbed up to the roof of our barracks, and was screaming and crying that he was going to kill himself. It was a hotter then blazes Sunday afternoon, I had barracks duty, and the campus was empty save for a few of us poor souls who were being punished with base restrictions due to "motivational" issues. Anyway, this poor kid was being washed out from flight school because after 3 attempts and failing to master hovering techniques, and an inability to learn auto rotation, which resulted in one T-55 totally destroyed, the Army decided it was time he do something else.

    I managed to climb up to the roof to try to talk some sense into him, but to make a long story short, he wouldn't have any of my BS. So I called down to one of my fellow students to not call the MP's, but instead, muster up a few of the guys and to bring brooms, mops, shovels, and to pay out the fire hose 'cause the kid was going to jump.

    The kid looked at me and gave me one of those WTF looks, when I calmly told him that we were ready whenever he was, when he blurted out, "what are you going to do with the fire hose and buckets...", and I said that after he jumped, I would be responsible for the policing up of the mess that he would make, that the shovels would scoop up his body parts, and the fire hose and brooms would scrub and wash away his blood, urine, and caca.

    Well, he didn't jump, and I didn't really encourage him not to, so by way of China, I say to you OP, jump and make sure it's worth your while, 'cause there may be no going back if you do.

    I sometimes think about this guy, his name I forgot ages ago, and wonder if he's alive today. What was certain though, was that he was the luckiest guy in the world at the time. He spent a few months in a rubber room, got a medical discharge, and got to live his life hopefully very happily...65% of my flight class never made it back to the world from the 'Nam, so I would say the would be jumper won the lottery that day.

    These threads always make me chuckle. The only way to know for sure is to go ahead and jump, otherwise you will always wonder. If Android or iOS works better for you then great. If not, come back knowing that it's not always about better specs.

    My Curve touchscreen 9380 is reassuringly similar to my Playbook....try OS7 devices if you love the playbook look....

    Up to you entirely, not sure why you need anyone else's opinion!

    I don't understand why people always ask others to make decisions for them in a forum.
    If it's your life make your own choices.
    Why ask strangers "What should I do"?

    If you have the moxy to make a choice to have a permanent BlackBerry tattoo on your person, but you can't choose a simple handheld device platform on your own, something is wrong. Ya think?

    Some people just want attention...

    I was interested in finding out what all the fuss was over the iphone, so I brought a 64gig iPod Touch. They said it was an iPhone without the cellular. My conclusion: There are advantages and disadvantages to both depending on your needs.

    Screen: clearer on the 9900 which surprised me.
    Media: Touch better
    Browser: 9900 better as it reformats text for readability.
    Data entry: 9900 hands down. The virtual keyboard is a painful chore.
    E-mail & messaging: 9900
    Apps: Touch hands down
    Touch screen: 9900 better with optical pad option. Touch too touchy with unwanted
    dialogue boxes popping up all the time.
    Usability: Touch very smooth. 9900 more keystrokes needed.
    mobile calling: untested

    In sum: no longer interested in the iphone. Appreciate much more how good a phone the 9900 is.
