    BlackBerry’s Quest: Fend Off the iPhone

    Advertisement



    STEVE JOBS, Apple’s chief executive and field general, has Napoleonic dreams of global conquest for his 10-month-old wonder gadget, the iPhone. So it may be fitting that he’s encountering his most serious resistance in a city called Waterloo.

    That is where, 70 miles west of Toronto in Ontario, 19 nondescript, low-rise office buildings comprise the headquarters of Research In Motion, maker of the BlackBerry.

    R.I.M. is the North American leader in building smartphones, those versatile handsets that operate more like computers than phones. But R.I.M. may have trouble dominating the market’s next phase. Once the exclusive domain of e-mail-obsessed professionals, smartphones are now prized by consumers who want easy access to the Web, digital music and video even more than an omnipresent connection to their in-boxes.

    Now I see why RIM is being very careful of the proucts and OS's that they release to the public. The last thing they need right now is to jump the gun and realease a product with all types of flaws on it. They must be triple checking everything to make sure that when we get it, it'll be a solid step forward.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Does anybody wonder what RIM would do without all the incredible BlackBerry web sites like PinStack (and a multitude of others) and the legion of supporters who are essentially doing customer/technical support for them?

    So true. IS there a website like Pinstack dedicated to I Phones users, I mean besides Apple, or the I Phone tech support site?

    Yeah nothing spectacular about the I phone. I love my blackberry. The blackberry is the most superior. As long as they do what theyve been doing then we are okay! ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Until Apple can compete with RIM on the corporate level I just see the iPhone as a nice trendy gimmick.

    Reinstall OS

    Yes, I'm a BES admin with an iPhone 3G.

    wahts more important, having all the bells and whistles that get outdated, and one upped, or having a reliable hand held that you know that yo can rely on?

    iPhone and it's clones, are too gimmicky for me. If I need to watch T.V. I have several of them at home, I have my mp3 player, etc. I don't need a 50 in 1 swiss army cell in my pocket waiting to crash because it gets overloaded.

    Long live the Berry!

    Google's "Android" runs Linux?

    Now THAT changes everything!


    Research in Motion (RIM) should look towards Linux also, if they value security as much as they claim, considering it is unquestionably one of (if not THE) most secure operating systems in the world...

    Couldn't agree more :-D

    I'm all Mac, aside my extensive collection of BlackBerry devices. I would never purchase an iphone. And if you handed me one for free, I'd go straight to ebay with it, and use my newly aquired cash to buy a new 8820.

    But, that's just me.......
