    I'm blindly loyal to my BlackBerry. I don't care, I admit it. It's always been the tool that serves me best.

    Let me just say this: I have met two people in the last 2 years who I've seen with tattoos of the Apple logo.

    Apple has a level of loyalty that no other tech company can compare with, so -- to be honest -- I see nothing surprising or controversial about the results of this study.

    Some guy got a tattoo of a blackberry storm (or cb symbol) during a cb contest a few years ago. I chuckle every time I think about it.

    I think we're all loyal to what serves us best. I love my Z10, but I also love my Samsung Galaxy SIII. That's why I switch back and forth between the two. Apple? I love MAC computers over any other brand, but that doesn't mean all the others suck. It's more about our personal preferences, in my opinion.

    I'm still shocked by how obsessed Crackberry is with Apple and their users.
    And how many iOS users are obsessed with coming here to comment on it ;-)

    (sorry - couldn't resist - obsession is a very human quality I think)

    Seems to be a Blackberry phenomenon from my POV.

    I don't think that's true, most people here buy one because it suits their needs highly, like qwerty or the hub/general new OS. Nobody buys a BB just because it's a BB lol.
    I don't agree.

    It is real

    I have customers who can buy the Z10 for 44 euro subscribe for 1 year unlimited for free but they choose for the apple 4S 8G with the same subscribe for 99 euro but most of them buy it for a 2 years subscribe . WTF

    compare z10 V 4S BlackBerry Z10 vs. Apple iPhone 4s - GSMArena.com

    CPU: Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait VS Dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9
    RAM : 2 GB RAM VS 512 MB RAM
    SCREEN: 4,2 (768 x 1280) VS 3,5 (640 x 960)
    MEMORY 16GB upgradable 64GB VS 8 GB non upgradable
    OS 10.2.1 (super fast) VS io6 (OK) or ios7 laggy battery killer

    So How is your life with ios 7

    I agree. It's silly to me that some people seem to think this is just an Apple phenomenon. There are tons of "blind fanboys" on Crackberry, and I can see why. You like what you like. If one company's products works well for you that's all that matters. But it's REALLY the pot calling the kettle black when BB fans call Apple fans "iSheep" and the like for continuing to buy Apple products. I'm sure there are several people here who have bought both the Z10 and Q10 and perhaps even the Z30 if their carrier allows. And many of these people probably have an extensive BBOS device history as well.
    Yeah but at least a q10 is different from a z10, one has a keyboard, other does not, z30 to z10, one has removable battery and bigger screen, one does not.

    But the difference between the iPhone, ipads maxi and ipads mini? Nothing but screen size. Can't add SD Memory, can't replace battery's, one doesn't have different shortcut keys than the other. To buy the same features with a different screen size and nothing else different is kind of odd. Why have a maxi and a mini and a iPhone? No other reason other than want or status. They all do the same thing.

    Not true. My iPhone is my main communication tool, while my ipad is used for reading, browsing the web, video streaming, stock market apps, writing (using Bluetooth keyboard), documents etc etc.

    Not sure what others experiences are but I'm noticing a lot of people who were staunch apple iPhone users, even til 6 months ago, saying they are tired of the same old and already some are jumping ship.

    Good point. People make phone calls on iPads all the time.

    Misinformation and/or exaggeration doesn't solve anything either.

    Apple has a pretty good reputation for consistency in mobile. Whenever they come out with a new iPhone or iPad reviewers generally consider them to the best in class. Tech oriented critics may say that they only add incremental improvements, however, they rarely end up with Storms or Playbooks or TouchPads or Nooks that end up essentially at a dead-end when they don't catch on.

    From a consumer standpoint, you also aren't left wondering what direction they are going in. They are will be in the consumer space primarily. Will they continue with tablets? Consumer smartphones? Power notebooks? Ultra-portable notebooks? Of course. I also like knowing that when I'm ready to upgrade, a reseller like Gazelle will be offering a decent price or someone in my life will be extremely happy to take it off my hands.

    I guess loyalty goes both ways. You can say that Apple is pretty loyal to the consumer technology market right now.
    You must not remember the first shot they had at an 'iPhone'. I don't think anyone remembers that because it was so crap (Motorola Rokr?). Retailed for around �200. There iPod range is failing... losses coming left and right and they've cut the order of iPhones from suppliers too :|.

    The "iTunes phone" was a Motorola device with an iTunes client. What you're suggesting here is akin to arguing that a SGS4 is a "BlackBerry" because it has BBM installed.

    It's also foolish to talk about Apple "losses" here. You're not going to win a battle of the financials.

    Oh. My. God. Your analogy makes absolutely zero sense. It's ok for BB to provide a difference in size but not Apple? In the end each Bb10 device does the exact same thing with the exact same OS.

    Lol the ROKR wasn't an iPhone or even anything close to it. The only thing the Rokr had was iTunes connectivity. That's it. Motorola made the phone and it was out well before they even called it a Rokr. It was a Motorola E398, and was actually a great phone for its time. The Rokr was simply the same phone that you could connect to iTunes running Motorola's OS. Apple had zero influence on it from an OS or design standpoint.

    My god I can't believe I'm even talking about it but you are so way off I couldn't not correct you. At least know your history before you comment on it.

    Apple makes good products. I don't use them but I have worked on them for others in the family and I can see why folks love Apple products. I see the appeal of the simplicity and the fit and finish of the hardware and software.

    Keep in mind that if Apple stops producing high quality products the customer loyalty will go away.

    In fact i'd say their decline pre-1997 or so is evidence that they can lose loyalists. Their was a time when folks wrote about content producers moving over to pcs as tools like adobe photo shop became feature complete on windows. Apple just could not get a modern multitasking os written. Of course a true meltdown was averted with jobs coming back and next os becoming the basis for their next-gen os.
