    Android - Samsung Galaxy S & Motorola Atrix
    1. Widgets
    2. Browser
    3. Speed

    BlackBerry - Far to many to list
    1. From Factor (Keyboard, portrait orientation)
    2. Data compression
    3. BBM

    iPhone iPhone 3, iPhone 4
    1. Apps
    2. abundance of hardware docking stations
    3. appearance when turned off

    IF I were forced to choose either Android or Apple for my next device because BlackBerry wasn't available I would be taking Android, except I'd be looking for a device more iPhone 4 size, rather than Atrix and Galaxy size.

    The biggest thing about the big three who are actually making decent progress at the moment (apple, Microsoft, and Google) is the service and ecosystem integration. Those phones are all a one stop shop. BlackBerry is not. It feels like a more fragmented user experience.

    Android openness is a win you can develop on a carrier locked phone without opening your wallet.

    Xbox live and game center are good for mobile gamers. IPhone is an iTouch and iTouch is the most popular mobile gaming device.

    ActiveSync support is a big win over blackberry fo consumers.

    Screen size less of an issue all platforms have at least one phone with a 3.5+ screen on it.

    Hmm I thought Windows Phone 7 might be the third best platform putting BlackBerry in 4th...


    Also I would give the browser win to Android since it offers both HTML5 and Flash.
