I use android for personal but my job provides me with a BB. BB has a long way to go before it even comes close to android or even iOS. I get my work emails on my android so I just set the BB to forward and only use it once a week to charge it. BB better step it up a great deal with this new OS, the big wigs at my company are already trashing their BBs to use their androids and iphones.
They do things very slow... launch a model, takes "donkey years"! Read a shocking report that only this year in North America, they lost 1 million customers. In the whole world, it could be 2 million. Blackberry users are turning Android or iPhone. The main reason for converting is data speed and apps. Nevertheless, blackberry still remains the KING OF PUSH MAILS and probably the KING OF QWERTY keyboard. They finally wake up now...to launch SEVEN models in 6mths.
7 new devices, huh..yeah right, like they did with the curve..let's see, one which slides, one flip model, another candy bar form..several versions of the same model..
Like why do they call blackberries ,smartphone? they can take pics and chat? Only?
Blackberry, you keep pushing back. This time if you do so, make sure everything is working with no problems/Bugs, otherwise I promise you, more people will leave your market faster than you can say "Competition"
That is all.
You are a bit pathetic... I'm an IPhone user on my private line and a BBerry user for my business line. And let me tell you, both are great ! And business wise, BBerry (9780) is unbeatable ! Easy, quick, super strong battery life and very nice to use. So, YES the IPhone is great and hype, but YES the BBerry experience is still fantastic and NEEDED. Thanks for trying to be a bit more neutral and smart. Cheers
blah blahhh been hearing crap all year long they keep delaying...keep satisfying your existing customers RIM instead of gaining new 1s...idiots...ever thought about launching bb bold touch atleast quicker then the other 6 devices they have planned...poor planning/marketing...dumping 6 sets in market wont do no good when u have the likes of iphone5 coming out soon and other due core phones...im not saying bb sucks they quite slick looking but gosh stick to your damn word! serious need to innovate more not only their products but strategies as well...

RIM is failing to innovate in comparison to Apple & Android devices. 4 year after first capacitive touch screen device launched and RIM just has 2 touch screen devices. The OS is old. I tried PlayBook and it looks fresh - they should get a similar or better OS and have more powerful devices than Samsung, etc. and better design than iPhone!
blackberry needs a entirely new os if they wana keep up, i cant use that phone for more than 5 mins before getting irritated, no speed, no good apps, crap camera(most of them), pathetic internet speed, i can go on and on.
bottom line is if blackberry never have bis they wouldnt sell 5% of what they sell now
People still buy Blackberries??
I thought they were delegated to the companies that still required them because they are pretty far behind the curve when it comes to competing with the last couple of years of actual consumer devices.....as shown by market gains for Apple and Google.

Putting 7 new devices on the market to meet financial targets, rather than meet the needs of the customer?
Er, *EPIC FAIL*. I'm not paying hundreds for half-baked junk just to keep them afloat.
If they created a UBER-powerful device I'd buy it. Would you?
No memory limit on applications. Fully touch based interface (like the iphone) as well as the onehand keypad. Long lasting battery (with solar charging). A device that boots in a fraction of a second, and acts without delay (A phone isn't smart if I have to wait 5 minutes before I can use it to make a call). High resolution screen (at least 800x600), plus the common sense functionality of the Blackberry devices that earned their fame.
cant wait for the new Bold 9900. love that they went back to the original size again!! (B9000)
can't wait for the new bold 9900!! love that it's grown to size again cuz i can't stand those tiny handsets
They really need to come up with completely new models instead of the same old same old to compete!! Check out my blog for latest techs n gadgets also @ http://www.mytechsngadgets.blogspot.com
Is it actually new Blackberries this time or just rebranded numbers of the Curve series like for the last 3 years?
reading the title of this article made me think rim doesn't believe it'll sell more than 7 devices in the remainder of 2011. Hope they'll do better than that ;-)
Time for innovation, Nokia has come up by means of Meego. BB has to fight for its survival!!
