    That pretty much sums it up. iPhone is a great consumer multimedia device the Blackberry is more geared to the business professional.

    I definitely hate the iPhone's touchscreen experience. Many devices have better touchscreens.

    iPhone 3GS means "Generally Sucks"

    Everyone around me seems to have the iphone. I wouldn't want it....blackberry is geared more towards the professional and that's what I see myself as. That's why most large companies in southern california (south bay specific) prefer the blackberry over the iphone.

    No doubt about it. However, that being said I was in NYC recently at a meeting with one of the top 5 law firms in the country and all their lawyers had iPhones. When I asked them about it they said their company only supports iPhones and not BB's anymore. I then pulled out my Tour and they all drooled LOL

    I think what they were drooling at was the physical keyboard. Being a past iPhone user, I could never type more than three words on that keyboard. I can't imagine being a lawyer and being forced to type a 5 page document sitting in an airport.

    I have to say, compared to the typing on the Storm I prefer the iPhone. But then again, i think it's pretty much anything other than the storm. The Click screen def. hurts my fingers. I was using the web on iPod Touch and I loved the way the sites would b displayed. To me it felt like I was on a really small computer as apposed to other phones where it feels like i'm using a phone to view the web pages. As far as getting an iPhone, I would think about getting one if it came on Verizon. But if ever there comes a time when a phone comes out that has the a mix of the best from RIM and the best from iPhone... that would b a phone i get, no q'stions about it.

    As far as the article that's posted in this thread, it's good to see from the eyes of someone who isn't even familiar with a touch phone but at the same time I feel the review could have been better had he gone from the Storm to the iPhone, since they're both a touch screen. For example, u can't tell if he's not getting used to the typing because he's not used to a touch screen phone or because it's the iPhone, simple things like that. But over all it was a good insight to see someoen from BB go to iPhone
