    UPDATE: Apparently the degree of idiocracy which forms the foundation of this thread has not been recognized by some as sarcasm and/or satire, so at the risk of ruining the not-so-subtle joke let me make clear that I recognize the faults made by RIM and that in some ways Android is superior. However, I personally like BlackBerry and feel I am entitled to do so without being repeatedly informed that "Android is better".

    It's because Android OS sucks. If it was as good as BBOS, they wouldn't need such powerful processors. BBOS just is, and will continue to be, better. Suck it haters.

    Is it trolling to post something like that on a BB site?
    If yes, than I suppose I am, but I don't think it is.

    I don't want to become totally dependent on Google, Microsoft, Apple, or anyone else.

    I would not get an Android, since I don't want Google to handle my sync. Gmail is my "junk" email address. I use my ISP's email address as my primary email address. I don't need Google Sync or Google Calendar to sync with BlackBerry.

    Microsoft used to be the company to hate due to controlling evrything. Google is worse. I want my privacy. I do not want Google to know about and run my life.

    Apart from me being here longer than you, look up my post history and you'll see I owned an 8320, 9000 and 9700. Too many times due to BIS outages all my BB was able to do was make phone calls, rendering it a dumb phone.

    Hows that for research?

    Not very good. Actually, it sounds like it has been over year since you would know. So, what are you even saying? Over a year ago you had an outage?

    actually gmail did have a small outage recently, it affect blackberries on BIS also. Any email can get hacked, that has nothing to do with BIS.

    There is a very simple answer to the OP's topic.

    BB's don't have the power, because they don't NEED it. Getting a BB and complaining over the lack of power is like buying a business-grade laptop and complaining because it's horrible at gaming.

    BB has a very trim OS, is very stable, does quick communication very well, and has AWESOME battery life. The people the BB is marketed for are looking for exactly that feature set.

    The Android and iPhone clans want high-res screens, hd playback, power for gaming, and all the flashy content they can get. Well, there are sacrifices. The iPhone and Android are glitchy at times, suck battery like mad, and are pretty fragile devices all around.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for flashy. I use a Captivate for my personal line. I love the phone, and it's a **** of a lot of fun. However, for my business line, where I need reliable communications and a sturdy build, I have the BB.

    Technically if this was still a Blackberry site, No it wouldn't be trolling, it would be just spreading miss information

    so you basically admit to starting a thread just to troll?
    It is only a Troll thread because there are a log of very very vocal Anti Blackberry, pro Android people who remain on this forum and post very frequently, a Post like this on Android Central, or TiPb would not be a trolling thread if putting down the other devices.

    You're at the mercy of BIS/BES pat yourself on the back
    Actually the difference between Google and BIS, is google stores all my information, BIS does not, Google keeps my search history, google logs what emails I get to deliver me advertisements that they deem appropriate.

    So, under your same "logic" once the new bbs come out with their new phones with 1gh processors, the bb os will suck?
    Well said, the thread isn't logical in the slightest.

    Apart from me being here longer than you, look up my post history and you'll see I owned an 8320, 9000 and 9700. Too many times due to BIS outages all my BB was able to do was make phone calls, rendering it a dumb phone.

    Hows that for research?

    save your Rolls eyes. Google has rolling outages all the time for accounts, but because they only effect a small number of people at a time it doesn't get publicity, I had to move to a Paid for Google Apps account so my email had better uptime.

    Also Since 2008 I believe there has been a total of 3 BIS outtages, none of which lasting more than a few hours, so one is hardly at the mercy,

    Research based on one person's experiences and not taking into account external influences is pretty shoddy. That's not research at all, it's self reports of discontentment. I could self report that the iPhone 3GS was a POS simply because it didn't work for me without taking into account any quantifiable research or customer satisfaction surveys. Would that be accurate?
