    Its one thing for the media to report facts regarding the current state of a company, but its quite a diffrent story when they attack the user base.

    The article is grossly inaccurate:

    "More indignity comes in having to outsource tasks like getting directions, booking travel, making restaurant reservations and looking up sports scores to their exasperated iPhone and Android-carting partners, friends and colleagues."

    The people they interviewed are clearly morons.

    Shame that US media paints RIM negatively, while the rest of the world holds them in high esteem. RIM devices account for 80% of mobile use and emails in the Caribbean, far less for Europe

    I guess they haven't seen Google Maps or Blackberry Travel.

    I doubt it will get past the moderators on their comments page, but this is what I responded with:

    How much did Apple pay for this article? Whoever approved it should be fired for incompetence. Everyone "interviewed" should be relegated to a non-smartphone as they obviously can't perform basic tasks.

    EVERYTHING they said they "needed" other smartphones to do can be done with any Blackberry dating back the last 3 years. Yelp? Opentable? Sports Scores? Mapping/Directions? ALL those apps are there and working well. 3 minutes to open the browser? Try one second.

    Battery dead? Come on, Blackberry is KNOWN for the duration of the battery vs all comers.

    The story about the charger? They use the most common USB cable in the smartphone industry - unlike iStuff.

    NYT is getting a reputation for putting out inaccurate/incomplete and biased articles.

    It frustrate the hell out of me to read about all the negativity about blackberry, while here in SA it,s the most talkabout smartphone on the market!!! I know we are a bit behind some more developed countries in the world but we just love blackberry.... I even use a samsung android secondary phone just to compare the platforms but by far i still prefer my Berry!! Just wish i own a 9900!!!

    All that stupids are just talking crap because they're part of the apple and android campaign. All of who say that RIM is dead or stuck in the stone age, simply they never took the time to learn to use their BB. RIM makes the most practical, simple, and useful smartphone of all, this is my opinion. I'd never change BB for an iToy, sorry.

    Wow, what a ridiculous article.

    What I find amongst most Blackberry haters I know is that their last or current experience is with a bargain basement older Curve. I'd like to know how many of the people in this article were using current berry models.

    My phone is a Torch and it does everything I need it to. Not once has it ever left me begging someone else to look something up for me on their phones.

    Something I discovered while reading over the history of the authors (@nicoleperlroth) written articles is very telling. See here... Nicole Perlroth - The New York Times

    What you'll notice is that this is the first time she has written about BlackBerry in the last year. Do we really think that she is qualified to write this article? No wonder it was full BS.

    It sounds like this was a smear job that she was paid to go pick out certain negative comments toward BlackBerry smartphones and make a video and article about it.

    That's what this article is, a smear job by some fangirl reporter that's pissed the iPhone5 upgrade is so lame.
