They haven't done enough for us, the consumer, which is why the numbers are declining in the US market - the most competitive market.

    I will say they did a pretty good job getting the PlayBook into the market when Apple had already innovated that area of devices.
    Looks like somebody's gonna start using their iPhone again...

    RIM needs to feel the heat from us, the fanbase, so that they know we demand more from them. For me, BBM and push email isn't enough. I want what the competitors have also.

    Same. Apple have lots of cool features that I'd like to see incorporated into a BlackBerry.

    I've been trying to get a official statement from RIM as to why the new Bold 9900 isn't out yet. I haven't gotten or even heard any answer as to why, just that they would release it if they could but it will take till this fall. 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...
