Interesting processor comparison that more than trumps what the iPhone offers. Apple is a great ... Smartphone News forum

Interesting processor comparison that more than trumps what the iPhone offers. Apple is a great marketer and, like in politics, the news media seem to have a bias. Indeed, among the iPhone hype in the June 9 USAToday is an article stating how the now more business-friendly iPhone is now a threat to Blackberry.
It would be nice to see some sort of similar comparison in the mainstream media to what's been shown here.

Wow, I'm so glad I saw this comparison. Its not like I was considering an iphone, but man am I pumped for the bold now. I've even got the go ahead from the misses and I can't wait. Only problem is that where I live it takes while for most carriers to get any new phones in and since I don't have the cash to buy one on eBay I'll have to wait and put the bold on my contract.
I don't care though, it looks so amazing and I can hardly wait!!!

Thx for great contrast there Hayden... it really does tell a lot.
While I'm committed to BB glory for the foreseeable future, I do see the appeal of the iPhone 2 and at 3G speeds finally, it will continue to sell rapidly. It's a jazzy lil thing and Apple's marketing machine is amazing...
As noted in a couple different posts here already, there are some gaping holes that Apple simply missed - MMS/Video Recording/Flash on Camera/SD Card support among others -
3rd party development opportunities and Enterprise support will also drive some new adoption.
But I'm ready to camp out for my Bold frankly...

That's all good but which will blend better?

The iPhone is over rated in the media, needless to say [coporate sponsors], and it seems to compare every smartphone to the Blackberry. That reason, Apple has major companies such as Disney, Nike, United States Army, New York Time, EA and such. That being the reason iPhone has such a influence in the media hype. That is the reason the media says its a business phone, and a Blackberry contender.
However on this forum, it seems very hostile with any mentions or defends the iPhone. I need to stop monitoring this thread. However I want to leave with a couple of comments, but just keep in mind, my curve is my main phone, my fiance is jealous of my phone's curve. However whoever has developed for the Mac is will the iPhone and understands it features. Apple has done a great job in it's implementation of Cocoa touch. Cocoa touch is feature rich and I am sorry, possibility is endless. Developing 8 months ago on a jailbroken phone was a pain the a**, but SDK is jaw dropping. I am a self learner, I have not take a single class in Object C, or X Code developing, but the SDK is a cheat sheet.
There are a many closed minded user, in Blackberry and iPhone forums that have not seem full capabilities of the other device. I'm sure everyone is familiar on the Bold technical features so I won't touch that, however most don't realize the iPhone technical features. OpenGL ES was EA's instant decision to develop on the iPhone.
Out of the box, the iPhone will not do much for many reasons, however I want people to understand that Apple's marketing team is genius. It will leave certain features out to lower the cost of the device itself (which the consumer will love) and make money from third party suppliers. In September, the iPhone will be rich device. One major accessories will release is a pocket size video projector. With it's media feature and soon to come Keynote support, if you were a corporate user, why wouldn't you chose the iPhone. Yes it has push email...
Blackberry will never be fully replace anytime soon in a full corporate world because simply of it's business features, I will not give my employees an iPhone because it's simply a big distraction. I'm sure they won't be so productive with the temptation of the app store. However from a general consumer base and small business user, the iPhone is a top choice. For the end consumer, and please feel free to flame me on my following statement, without the Blackberry network, my Curve will simply downgrade to a regular smartphone. To close, become educated and familiar with both platform and device before you give an opinion. Blackberry and iPhone is soon to become a Window and OS X discussion.

What puzzles me is why Apple would use a locked version of Bluetooth.
Kind of lame locking down what is supposed to be an open standard.

yeah once the manufacturers get on the bandwagon and pop out 32GB cards that won't cost you your first born, the Blackberry will hold twice as much as the biggest iphone (16GB currently). I won't lie, I really like the new iphone, but when it comes to user friendliness, business power, and of course that always on email, you just can't beat it. And one HUGE factor about the BB Bold, you can add 3rd party battery solutions that maxmize the phone's features, and also just buy a 2nd battery! With the iphone you'd have to stop and charge if your phone was dead, there is no replacement battery lol, kind of retarded if you ask me....I was excited about the iphone, but I'm over it...on with the King of Messaging, the Blackberry 9000.......
