I have neither a BB or an iPhone, but if I were a Man, I'd get an iPhone. Better to ditch your dingleberries and get away from that sinking ship.
iPhone = toy
BlackBerry = get Dung done

Yeah, so people say. What exactly do you get done with your BB that you couldn't with an iPhone?

It comes down to email/calendar/contact management. With my BB, I manage 6 email accounts along with full calendar/contact/task/memo integration with Outlook. Very hard to do with an iPhone. Productivity vs Entertainment.

That cinches it. I'm getting an iPhone to justify my lack of productivity! Beer

This. Also I can open and edit excel and word documents/powerpoints. Last I checked, you need a whole separate app for that on iphone and even then you can only read, no edit.

Would kick Donkey if eventually Visio gets added! Ahhhhh!

There's no question, BB does email better. But everything else, it doesn't. When I need to look at a simple website run an app, I want to smash my POS BB on the pavement. I installed BBOS 6 recently and it's much better, but still the BOLD is slow as hell compared to my wife's IP4.

Ahh, I see. So the BB is better at managing ridiculous email cluster diddles.

A lot of companies are moving towards iPhones on the corporate network. There is support for Exchange and Active Sync on iPhone. The only issue becomes the company's tolerance for secure communications etc...

Real cheap men use whatever the company policy says. I actually asked if I could get an Android as real men wouldn't use products designed for the dilettante. Who wears a turtleneck? In the 21st century?

One guy in my group has an iPhone and always uses it to send mail. It always arrives in plain-text, stripped of any/all formatting. I'm hoping that the BB does a better job.

P.S. YES. You need HTML or RTF for today's business-related mail.

Yeah, for web browsing... the BB was far behind the competition for a very long time, especially the small screen BBs. BB 7.x has come a long way and the 9900's screen is sweet. But you really need a big high res screen to enjoy web browsing on a mobile device. Like Android and iPhone. The BB Torch has a nice screen but it's still low res. That's always been a beef of mine. Crank the damn dpi's on these things.

The first BB10 device looks to address those issues.. we'll see...

iPad 2 vs PlayBook OS2 smackdown!

http://crackberry.com/ipad-2-vs-playbook-20-ultimate-tablet-smackdown

A good read comparing 10 key features. iPad 2 came out as the winner but it was very close.

Hey Playbook owners - is 16GB enough?

I'm thinking of getting one to go with my Bold.

If you want to load it up with movies and media, I'd go 32GB min. I've got a load of movies on mine that I bring on the road with me. My wife has a 16GB iPad2 and we're constantly shuffling movies on and off due to the reduced space.

And at the prices these days, it's only $50 more for double the space... 32GB is $249 and 64GB is $299 now.

Sweet.
