    Apple + Blackberry. What are the odds?

    Advertisement



    Here are some interesting views from a few reputable blogs:

    "The first hole in the story is why would any sane company ever want Apple iTunes on their employee's phone? I can see just see personnel department counting the man hours being lost to drumming on the desk like you are John Bonham. Second hole is that Apple is already friends with lots of manufacturers and about to release their own phone so why would they upstage themselves with a BlackBerry release?"
    --MobileScraper

    "Both companies are headed by strong personalities that have historically had "control issues." Getting them to collaborate probably would not be as simple as having Apple drop its metaphorical chocolate into RIM's metaphorical peanut butter. If you have any doubts, just look at how nicely Apple played with Motorola last year with the Rokr cell phone."
    --ArsTechnica

    "Riiight. As much as we'd love to believe that Apple is partnering with RIM to create some sort of 'AppleBerry' device to play music, check email and cook our breakfast for us, we're going to refrain from getting too hyped up about this latest rumor. Just like most of the "juicier" (i.e., rather fanciful and completely unfounded) rumors these days, this one comes from an analyst...We hope we're wrong, Peter, we really do."
    --Engadget

    That's been our thought also... we'll see.

    The idea is interesting.

    However, I will keep my BlackBerry my BlackBerry, and my iPod my iPod.

    Besides...the only one I ALWAYS have with me and ALWAYS turned on is definitely not the iPod. (Sorry Steve.)

    if this "marriage" happened... it would be the combination of two "cool" companies... each with rabidly loyal and passionate users.

    i would love to see it.

    I would like to see Apple do the sync solution, though.

    The 2 of them would be great. I'm a Apple computer user any way, so i welcome the idea. And w/bb getting 2b more & more popular. Apple would really be a great start 4 bb commercials in the future.

    Re: Apple + Blackberry. What are the odds?

    yea i dont really care for the idea of porting itunes into the bb but them fxing the app loader situation that would be great.. i have the macberry theme on my 7250.. its a shame that its not the real thing tho.. mac shell on bb.. they should def do it.The BlackBerry is one of the best handhelds and Mac is the best computing platform.
    Hello im a Mac...

    Apple + Phone + iPod = Good Idea..

    Not sure how well the iPhone is going to compete with the BlackBerry though.. especially with the on screen keyboard. I'd rather have keys, but we'll see..

    Being that they both are the most popular in their "market" I think it would be a good idea for them to create something together.

    I'm a Mac user (and I love my Mac) as well as being a new BB convert. While the idea is interesting, I just don't see the likelihood in it.

    I'm fond of my BB just the way it is...it's unique just like my Mac.

    hopefully i'll never have to hear about BlackApple or Apple's in Motion.


    and to the rabidly loyal customers comment -- i think it would depend on if who bought who...........who would be the angry bunch of loyalist zealots (ourselves or the Appleites)
    a blackberry is a tool. a treo is a toy

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I hope the idea goes away because when I get an SD equipped berry I don't want Apple or anyone telling me what I can and can't do with my music and how to do it.
