There is no way I would give up my BlackBerry or my iPhone. The iPhone has made the world "So much Closer"I can't pretend I don't miss by blackberry...I just got rid of my 8800. For what it did it, it did perfect...email. Everything else was just a compromise for me. The calendar was just ok, the contacts were pretty good. One thing I do miss is the profile settings. I used it for meetings, and even at night I had one set up that would filter out biz emails but allow calls or text messages from my kids in case they needed me.
I know the iPhone will get there and I'm willing to deal with the extra steps to get my emails until they do.
I'd say it's more an Apple to a pear. PIM features are important to me, and while I have made significant PIM concessions by switching to the iPhone, I still get the functionality I need, just not the extra conveniences.It is funny how folks keep trying to compare the iPhone to a BlackBerry. That is like comparing an Apple to an Orange. I own both an 8700c Blackberry and an 8Gb iPhone. Each function well at what they were intended to do
Just my 2Cents
That would be also true for Macs but it did not happen. It may not happen for iPhon either. It is very likely that in one year many phones will become more media friendly (BB and WM) thus reducing the appeal for IT deparments to try to bring iPhone into their environments.but as soon as iPhone integrates into a corporate email environment which I have to think they are looking toward, I will buy one. I mean $ is $ and you open up a whole new sales market if you can include businessses.
Many people keep saying this, but other than push mail and Exchange full integration, what does the Blackberry have over the iPhone? I've never been a Blackberry user, so this is a legitimate question, not a bash.they are directed toward different types of people too.
blackberry is more for businesss
iPhone is more for entertainment
when someone combines the two, they will make millions lol
I too steped down from my 8800 What a sweet phone before the iPhone was release. How much do you want for the 8800?Again
I still have my Blackberry 8800 which does not have a camera. Push email is not that big of a deal. If your life depends on the extra 15 minutes you probably shouldn't be leaving the office in the first place. I wish the speaker were louder, but f*** it they didn't make the phone for just me....I will keep the iPhone and openly and loudly hope they fix it with a software update. Anyone want to buy my 8800?
