BlackBerry vs IPhone
In my previous post about letting BlackberryOS move ownership over to Joe, I mentioned that the reason was because I lost the love for Blackberry. The other day I was sitting at my desk just playing around with the Tour when I kept getting the same errors I have been getting for quite some time now. That's when I really lost my love for BlackBerry and was bored of my Tour. I made the decision to give the I-phone a shot (I still use my Tour as well). Keep in mind the only smartphones I have ever owned were BlackBerry devices. So after using the iphone and coming frmo a BB...The iphone made me have that feeling of loving my cellphone again. I can not put the iphone down. It's everything BlackBerry is not. The only issue I have with the IP is lack of multitasking. After handling the IP and then picking up the Tour to BBM or text some one on there, the Tour feels like a cheap, plastic device and def does not feel like a well built solid device like the IP. I used to bash the IP but, I honestly have to say I wish I gave IPhone a chance before hand. At the same time, if I did not, BlackberryOS would not be around. I will also be getting the Incredible June 22nd when verizon can fill their stock.
Well, you just get around.
One thing I'm hoping for the Blackberry market is a great multitasking/App playable combination.
I must admit Brett, if RIM dont pull the goods out of the hat this year with either the Slider or Storm 3, I am going Android.
I really like the EVO and would love that device but I like the security of the BB devices.
I also like the way you can make it your own. Now Im getting into the hybrid making market (for myself just now) I really love what I can do to it.
I have a PC at home but the wife wants a MAC.
I have just got an iPad for her until the MAC arrives cos I sold her laptop and I can see why people like the things.
It is a great device and makes me want to try the iPhone out but... BUT... I do like my BB and my PC... maybe I am just set in my ways?
Time will tell.
The reason Brett you lost your love for BlackBerry® is because you choose the carrier that offer the worst latest BlackBerry® ever, the Tour and Storm, get a 9700 and you'll see.
I could forgive you if you had chosen Android, but I would never forgive you for using an Iphone, TRAITOR lol
Now jailbreak the thing and you'll see its real power...

I am tied to VZW and I have had great service over the 10 years I have been with them, I really do not have a reason to switch. My NE2 is up 8/1 and unless the slider or S3 is available at VZW, I will purchase an Incredible. We only have Macs in our house, but I run Windows just for my BB theme building and hybrids. My wife is considering entering the smartphone world and really wants an iPhone which is a natural choice when you are a Mac-user. Will she wait to see if VZW gets it? I am really not sure. She is not as particular about a phone as I/we are.
I use Google for so much, so the Incredible is a natural fit and I am not tied to the native mac-apps, like some are. I prefer Google calendar to iCal. I will need my socks knocked off to change my mind.....
I am rambling...time to go to bed.:cool2:

I hate to admit it but I love the i-phone. I've been playing games on it all day, e-mails come in just as quick on the BB. Only downfall I have is I can not multi task but...I enjoy it still.
Jailbreak it and I can then multi task?
