    RIM is still hands down the best Enterprise phone for business. iPhones, droids, windows mobile do not even come close.

    i have 150 BB's on a BES and tested all the other products at length and nothing compares...

    and as far as their 'new features'... i can see every computer on all of our networks and get into their files from my storm 2... and that comes standard with BES 5.0 with OS 5.0 software...

    they are and will be the industry leader for business's smartphone needs.

The web kit will improve on their browsers and IMO that is really the only thing I hear everyone complaining about. Will the web kit satifiy everyone, I severely doubt it.

    In the end if you look at the past 5 years RIM has improved on their phones pretty dramatically. I own a IPhone aswell and I fondly refer to it as my IJunk. Im just not that impressed with it and all the 150,000+ apps which most of it is usless. That phone still has its issues with functionality and build design. And personally if I want a "desktop" experience on a phone the, iphone still falls short as well BTW, i will get a net book to carry or just wait till I am at my PC. The Iphone doesnt display every site in full html and it cant display flash either so not every website can be displayed on that phone either.




    That's my 2 cents.
    My thoughts exactly. Their webkit browser will be out sometime this year, and they continue to work on OS enhancements, but it is a BlackBerry - It is a Smartphone for business type people, not for the teenager who wants to surf youtube. I just don't think they feel as if they need to do what the others are doing to try to keep up.

    RIM offers a great mobile device IMO & they will continue to stay afloat

    Trying to stick with my BB, but I'm tired of seeing all these recycled phones. It's even worst now that they all start looking alike. If the HTC HD2 was on vzw, I would've jump ship. I sure hope the storm3 will be a lot more appealing than the Storm2(more memory & Wifi). Really?

    I'm still using a storm 1, and for the most part i find the device quite good... that is if I don't consider the patheticly slow web browsing expierience and major lack of memory for apps. ..the thing is, these two items are important enought that I too am considering swithching to an android..




    ..can that many people be all that wrong?

    RIM was and still is the business phone but it may not be like that for much longer. It's not all that hard for these other platforms to enhance their e-mail capabilities. RIM acts like they are the only ones who can have such great email capabilities when that is def. not the case.

    This poll IMO is inaccurate. I've been saying this since day one, and have seen it mentioned quite a few times in this thread. The BB was not made or marketed for the teenager or the baby boomer as a status symbol. It was made for and is continued to be made for the professional business user. Yes, Rim does not keep up with the Iphone 150 000 apps, or cater to every wish and whim out there that people have. Yes, the native browser is slow, but there are free options out there (bolt, Opera Mini), both of which work amazingly well, until the Web Kit is released.

    Now back to the graph illustrated above. How many of those people are teenagers who are attracted by a phone that will allow them 150k+ apps, or better streaming video? Or the baby boomer that is keeping up with the guy next door. Then, how many of the people switching in this poll are business users? Very few is my guess.

    RIM is designing, making and marketing a tool for business use. This has been they're core value since day one and will continue to be so for many years to come. I think that if any poll should be set up by Brett, it should be directed at business users here at BBOS, asking them if they will switch to a different smartphone. I'm guessing the results would be significantly skewed.
