    Whilst reviewing the HTC Status, or Facebook phone, this Gizmodo reviewer decided to take a shot at BlackBerry. Why you may ask? Hey, it is Gizmodo; that is just how they roll. Remember the BlackBerry Torch screen comment? Yeah, this one is even better: "Overall, it's a lot like using a brand new Blackberry, if Blackberry OS weren't a heap of fecal matter and glass shards."

    hahaha. Very true. I love that the guy took the time for a snide comment about BlackBerry in the middle of a review about another device. He could have left it at it is comparable to handling a BlackBerry. But, meh, what can you do?

    Agreed. It was just a bit surprising. Like, humm, okay, was that necessary? A bit below the belt.

    Hey, go crazy. No need to refrain. I promise you I will not cry in my corn flakes over a self described, controversial comment. Others might, but that happens.

    lmao. Very true, yet I think the Facebook device is nothing more than an attempt to get a few extra bucks by HTC. As Biddle pointed out in the review, almost every smartphone is a Facebook device at this point. The only difference with the HTC Status is that nifty Facebook button on the bottom. Clever, no?

    How's rubbish? It's full of functions and shortcuts at every corner making for fast experience. What exactly do you expect from on OS?

    Yet, you live inside your BlackBerry it seems. Hmm, that means something, or nothing. But, most likely, something.

    I guess I don't understand, Freud would say to say that BlackBerry messenger is keeping you from using that rubbish. meaning that the opposition OS is the rubbish and not BlackBerry as bbm is a feature of BlackBerry OS, I could go on?

    Definitely a gratuitous comment, but one I agree with.

    It's pretty indisputable that BBOS is slow, buggy, app-poor and the browser is still complete ****e. I am very excited that I only have two or three months left before I can leave mine behind forever.

    It is far from indisputable as to the "slow" or "buggy" nature of the BBOS

    BBOS 6 has been far from Slow for me, the universal search is fast, every short cut key works without delay, and switching between active screens has been great. as for buggy, I only run into what I would classify as bugs when I install 3rd party apps, which is not the fault of the OS but the fault of the apps.

    YES the Apps are limited in numbers, and my OS6 browser isn't fast, but it renders pages well, and is very usable.
    seeing as you have a time frame for your chance to get out of your phone, I would assume at best you have an older OS5 device, thus can't comment to the great quality of BBOS6,
    it is like talking about Windows and referring only to Vista, with 7 being out for over a year.

    My main device is a Tour, which is utter garbage. But I received a Torch as a gift, and I would say that it would have been a solid device had it been released 18 months before it was. As it is, it's underpowered and under-spec'd.

    Yes, it's buggy, the death clock shows up all the time, the browser is still crap and it still takes too long to reboot.

    I'm happy for people who are satisfied with it, but it doesn't impress me at all.

    I think the 9650 is the worst phone Blackberry ever made. The battery life was atrocious. Os 6 is a joke. My phone would crash with light multitasking. I'm willing to bet this little toy could out perform that pos business phone. And it's 50 bucks. The 9700 however... Is one of the greatest phones ever! Blackberrys are only as FUN as your contacts . No. I'm not a biased fanboy. I call a spade, a spade.

    Indisputable?
    Hardly so. I'll dispute that.
    BBOS as installed in my Torch managed to consistently load web pages in the DC Metro faster than my Atrix.
    BBOS as installed in my Torch has no bugs that would render it unable to perform...I can last a full day without a single battery pull. I don't remember the last battery pull I had to do other than when I install an app. I do have Meter Berry do a battery pull every morning. Same as I take my car for an oil change and take it in for regular maintenance. Much as I defrag my PC regularly.
    I dispute the absence of apps for my needs. I qualify that as "my needs" because I don't find it necessary to use an app for every action I take every single moment of every single day. Those apps I need I find. With the sole exception of the DC Circulator app found in the iPhone store.
    I dispute that the browser is complete ****e as you call it. It is a marked improvement over prior which were in fact complete ****e. I can do all the browsing I want on my Torch. Can it be improved? Sure. Complete ****e? Hyperbole.
    Question - if the phone made you so unhappy, why keep it? I returned the iPhone 3GS within 30 days. I gave away my Atrix.
    Life is too short and days are too few to spend them unhappy. Your choice to keep a device you did not want. Unless it was assigned from work. In which case it's their choice.
