    Article: Voice Chat on BBM vs 7

    ...and this (and other little things) are the features that will make the difference. It looks good. So far.

    By the time we have BB10 it may well be Video chat, since it is already on the PlayBook but not linked to BBM yet.

    I see it as a useful feature for business users, rather than consumers.

    Some people might like voice chat, but I do not see that as a popular consumer feature, especially among younger users.


    Voice calls are becoming a thing of the past, especially with younger people. Even SMS is on the decline, as IM apps seem to be catching on more. I do not see where many young consumers will actually care to "talk" using BBM, if they don't talk much using regular phone minutes.

    However, this could be a good feature for business users to communicate with co-workers and clients.

    I suppose I am a business user, certainly find it useful when overseas to speak to my wife . I don't know if I would use it for talking to clients though. There are a lot of users that would use it to talk with their families back in their home countries it is surprising how many people work overseas and like to hear their families voice rather than just text

    That makes sense. I never travel overseas, and I am single. I also do not know anyone in my extended family or any friends who still use BlackBerry. My cousin dumped BlackBerry when his company switched to Android 1˝ years ago. Then I dumped BlackBerry 7 months ago.


    My cousin hates BlackBerry with a passion after suffering through the original Storm. I just think BlackBerry is "meh" for consumers and ok for enterprise and government workers.

    I never liked talking on the phone even in the days of landlines.



    If I can't talk face to face, I prefer text, email or IM.
