    As an owner of both, you might be surprised that I voted no. I love that this site is BB specific so that I can get all the information I need about my Storm without sifting thru a mess of Iphone chatter. An iPhone is what it is. (I love it) but to me, my BB is like my old Landrover, finicky, tempermental and unbelievable in the things it is capable of! It is unique and in the hands of an amazing hybrid, it is an business tool like no other.

    ... No
    Well put! One thing I have learned here
    Is we seem to no... We set a standard
    Higher than the other sites and maintain
    It. Like i said before different affiliated
    Site. I guarantee it would turn into crackberry
    And or other similar sites

    Yeah another site as in not this one.

    For example, Crackberry.com is for BB users but they also own theiphoneblog.com which is for iPhone users.

    The question was whether to have one site to include both iPhone and Blackberry information or to create sites like Crackberry did. And I think the masses have spoken.

    I'd keep it simple for search engine purposes...
    A Blackberry site is a Blackberry site. An iPhone site is an iPhone site, a Windows Mobile site is a Windows Mobile site.
    I vote no...not because of any particular allegence to a brand. I'd likely have gone with an iPhone had it been available on VZW - AT&T just doesn't cut it in my neck of the woods.
    It just seems simpler to have seperate sites to search/drill down to the needed information.
    At this stage of the game, what could an iPhone user expect to find in such a site? As I understand it, one can't even change the battery, let alone mess with an operating system. So, other than selling iPhone applications, I see no real benefit to comingling the communities/forums.

    It was an example, no one is trying to emulate anything.
