    Blackberry Bold vs Apple 3GS First Round!!


    At $99 for the older version, Apple's iPhone may now have wider mass-market appeal, but the would-be Apple iPhone Pro still lags behind the BlackBerry in the office space.

    "While we continue to believe Apple maintains a wide lead in the high-end consumer handset market over RIM, we do not believe Apple's new iPhone S is a material game changer for RIM," JPMorgan's Ehud Gelblum writes in a research note Tuesday.

    In a side-by-side hardware comparison between the iPhone S and the BlackBerry Bold, JPMorgan points out a few differences, such as a touchscreen vs. a keyboard, but no other dramatic distinctions.

    In other words, Apple doesn't provide significant enough benefits to get business users to replace their RIM email devices with big-screen iPhones.

    Apple decided to stick with the same iPhone design for the tricky third year, figuring another big price cut would help keep the phone hot. Analysts say the move is a no-brainer and an easy way to tack on another 40% sales growth.

    Apple can't yet crack the BlackBerry's hold on business users, but it may not matter as consumers increasingly replace their old dumb phones with smartphones. And after a rocky entry into the consumer market last year, RIM has had a smoother ride

    Now both shops are pushing for broader marketshare as reborn entrant Palm's Pre and refocused giant Nokia aim their best smartphone efforts at the market this summer.

    With RIM shares up 2% in early trading Tuesday and Apple largely unchanged, investors seem to think the BlackBerry maker came out of iPhone Monday a winner.

    But here is the catch with that article E, this biggest cell phone market are those between 18-25 which most probably are not business users. So while the iPhone may not replace RIM in the business place that is not really their aim. It's a consumer device with some features that could allow biz users to adopt especially now that it is compatible with exchange and with Docs to Go set to be released. But Apple doesn't need to sell to business users in three years they have already sold 40 million iPhones. That number is totally staggering IMHO

    That's unknown Stiefler. Apple I don't believe has released the clock speeds on the iPhone 3Gs yet.

    Actually T-Mobile Netherlands made a "whoops" and released them. The iPhone 3GS is running a 600 MHZ-processor and the Bold 800 MHZ-processor De verschillen tussen de iPhone 3G en iPhone 3G S - T-Mobile http://www.engadget.com/2009/06/10/iphone-3g-s-processor-specs-600mhz-cpu-256mb-of-ram/

    Really?! The Bold vs the new iPhone! Well actually I can't even really say this is a "new" iPhone. But still the Bold is still the better than this one. Until I see a video of the Bold comparing speeds to the iPhone I'll stand by my statement.

    Maybe the real "new" iPhone will have a better processor than the Bold. But then again there will probably be a 1GHz processor on a BlackBerry out there, while Apple finally hits the 800MHZ spec.

    It really just comes down to purpose. If you need your phone for business Bold all way. If you are looking for a consumer product than it's the iPhone. Both have their pluses and minuses for me AT&T sucks all around so I choose neither.

    Exactly, IMHO I believe Apple is saving something for when/if they move to VZW. It will entice many more users to grab the phone up. But I am getting an iPod Touch here shortly, and that's all I want from Apple is music.

    I'm not saying it is beating a BlackBerry in no way shape OR form. I'm only saying the only think I'm using Apple for is a MP3 player, no more then that.
