"Blackberrys are dead. They are no longer cool. They shouldn’t even be considered smartphones. Yes, they have an app store but quit frankly,just like the actual phone, it sucks."
My thoughts exactly. I never owned one and I have never wanted one. Admittingly, I wanted an iPhone. When carrier restrictions wouldn't allow me to get one, I got a G1 on T-Mobile Never a BB though...NEVER WILL I EVER
That article was a waste of time, bandwidth, and battery life.
Your opinion is well respected. Thanks for sharing.
Article is spot on. its a dying brand it will turn into the first touch screen phones and old palms. used by a small group of people and businesses. it will be the xp of the phone business world
I agree with the guy. Blackberry phones do suck and they all look the damn same.
Lol, if you read the original article some fool from Venenzuela chims in talking about how its still the most popular phone in his country. That is all you need to know right there people ! Blackberry is still hot in Venenzuela ! An almost 3rd world country ruled by a nutball, Yea and I hear Myspace is still huge down there too ! Blackberry is on its last leg, get over it.
Hey, be fair. I do understand that BB is still popular in many third world countries. A few of my friends tell me that they use BB because their mobile providers do not have the proper plans and networks to support phones like the iPhone and Android devices.
RIM partners with many 3rd world providers to offer crappy BBs at extremely low prices with overpriced EDGE plans. Some of the countries where 3G and 4G are coming on stream are where Android and iPhone are finally picking up.
I agree with you but at least Venezuela's nutjob keeps his nutjobbery quarantined to his country. Now, the American government... Would you rather have a psychopath in an asylum or on the loose with a cannon?
Well maybe if the nutjob wasnt a damn near Commy his country wouldnt be stuck using 10 year old cell phones. Funny how other countries hate us still they need our money or help.
Needs your help? LOL Most countries around the world that aren't completely poverty stricken don't get a penny from the US. And before you mouth off against a failed system (Communism), look in the mirror and see how your failed economy of rampant capitalism is doing. At least under Communist rule, you never go hungry, homeless, or sick. Dumbass nationalist Americans are the reason the world and many Americans hate America. Love your country but don't hate on others.
For me, the only good thing about having a Blackberry is that I have not had a cell phone bill in over 7 years. The company I work for pays the bill as long as I'm available 24/7. It works out because I get to use it for personal use too. Everything else about this POS completely sucks.
Some companies use the BYOD policy. You should ask your department if they allow that.
It started off that way and then changed shortly aftter when somebody decided that we all should have the same service provider and phones to qualify for group rates.
His main gripe is that all BB's look the same. iPhones don't?
yep rim onli push the blackberry to places they know onli can support edge technology, in bahamas we just recently got 4g and before this EVERYONE had a blackberry. soo long RIM android, apple, windows has arrived atleast in bahamas it has.
