This sort of surprises me considering at the BlackBerry World 2011 event they had fully working models being demoed and showcased. Makes one wonder what the holdup is?
    Possibly some exploit in the OS that allows you to hack it? You know how RIM loves their reputation of the best security on a smartphone. Or maybe they had another 'amazing' idea and are working to include it in the OS.

    It's funny you say this. The thing is, unless you have a lot of time on your hands, having a huge amount of apps is really pointless. Sure you got a lot of options, but at one point you look at your phone and say, "what the hell are all these doing here!?"

    .. the apps I keep in my blackberry are mostly system / performance apps hence they're just there for a purpose i.e batteryex, menu monster (4 in one), running icon, Advanced RAM Optimizer, Nux Tools, weatherbug, font application, a flashlight app, etc. .. 2 entertaining apps I keep is FB (keep track of my friends) and Ubersocial (news, ATP tours, EPL, Blackberry updates).. I have just been given a game (free and licensed) to try a few minutes ago, now I have decided to get rid of it because I don't like it that much.. lol...

    ... my wife on the other hand enjoys having the iphone... she's a full time housewife and expecting.. .. meaning, having all the time in the world.. lol...

    Congrats! Your first? Just wait till the baby is born, then iPhone time will be reduced dramatically.

    My wife has the iPhone as well and our almost 2 year old daughter has taken it over. Kids love touchscreen devices.

    iMessage will not be the fall of BBM by any means. The reason why BBM has rocked is NOT because it bypasses the SMS count/use on our plans (most people have unlimited texting anyways), and it is NOT because of the check, D, and R either (many apps like WhatsApp, Qik; etc have copied this already), but instead it is the whole integration of not having to log in/out, having a separate contact list/address book-like feel to it that lets each friend have it's own individual picture, status message; etc. This is the one of the things that iMessage lacks in the user interface department in my opinion.

    I cannot wait for someone to switch over to an iPhone from a BB to try iMessage thinking it's just like BBM and then immediately ask "wait, there's no like seperate app or contact list, it's just integrated in the address book? how do I add people? no contact pictures or statuses? what if I wanna SMS someone when the Apple servers go down and iMessage stops functioning? what about the groups? no... that's just a group chat that gets deleted after everyone leaves..."

    /Rant

    I had a lot to say about it and hadn't gotten a chance to let it out lol

    Let them take more and more market share! Those people who are switching from BlackBerry to Droid or iPhone are traitors and dont deserve to carry a BB. They can have their other crap phones lol.

    That ruined my idea of trashing my BlackBerry once I got my iPhone...
    Hey Joe, you have an iPhone, right? Can you tell me what is good and what isn't about it? (Not an iPhone-BlackBerry comparison, just a list of things you find good and bad about it)
    Thanks

    It's actually my wife's iPhone, but I do use it from time to time. *waits for the insults*

    Well with iOS 5, it's gotten much better for the iPhone with having the new iMessage feature, Twitter integration, and new notification system as well as the cloud network. With iOS 4, it's not so great.

    But, it wouldn't be fair to compare the BlackBerry OS 6 with iOS 5. I'll wait till BlackBerry 7 is out and then I'll do a video comparing BlackBerry 7 with iOS 5.

    Oh, perfect. That would be great, and around the time I would be looking for a new phone (I'll still keep my Berry for the Theme Reviews, or I'll just use a simulator)
    Thanks
