    Blackberry Pros/Cons

    Advertisement



    Greetings, everyone.

    I am going to start this post by saying that I do not own a BlackBerry myself. I am a student creating a small webpage on the BlackBerry for my research project. I was wondering if anyone of expertise on the Blackberry would be willing to offer some aid.

    What are the pros and the cons of using a BlackBerry, as opposed to its competitors?

    A simple question, one I could probably find the answer to myself, but the project requires that I ask someone else, though it doesn't have to be directly.

    Anyone willing to help me out?

    ThatGuy72688, Welcome to PinStack.

    I'm sure you will get a variety of answers, but to me the Blackberry is a solid reliable communication tool, as opposed to a general purpose do all be all cell phone that doesn't really do anything well, but has a lot of potential capabilities, and has reliability problems in handling the load.

    Just my $0.02

    Re: Blackberry Pros/Cons

    Pros- Very reliable devices. Easy to use. Not prone to Windows flaws because it is not windows based

    Cons- The word still a windows worlds, though it is changing, there are apps for some of the "newer" Non bb devices that are not BB friendly, yet.

    Re: Blackberry Pros/Cons

    Pros - Great emailing device.

    Cons - Great emailing device. Limited applications supported by the device. For example, I can't run an true enterprise portal on BB vs WM will have no problem, at least for my needs.

    Install DM on computer>Download and install OS on computer>Connect BB to PC>Start DM and you will be prompted to update.

    Pro's:
    Very Stable OS

    Up to 10 Email Accounts
    Lots of applications

    Con's
    Browser needs work (in my opinion)

    Re: Blackberry Pros/Cons

    Pros: 24 hrs connected for email and browsing, secure and fast, reliable, work on the go, Works best for Corporates and not for commercial users. Better compression and encryption.


    Cons: Doesnt give much flexibility for customisation. when compared to windows phones, it doesnt allow you to play around with the folders and files inside your handset. like moving from one location to another. Hiding a particular file or folder.

    Expensive solution when compared to wat others offer.








    Cons:

    Been trying for a week it is not so simple.
    Not trying to hijack a thread the pros are very numerous which is why I am still fighting to get mine up and running. Short of carrying around a laptop and a cell modem nothing will do what a Blackberry can do, and if there is something out there it will not do it as well.

    Re: Blackberry Pros/Cons

    The main con, in my opinion, is the lack of software support. Compared with both Palm and Windows Mobile, Blackberries don't have relatively few applications. However, the Blackberry, until the release of the Pearl, has been exclusively a business device, so it can be somewhat forgiven for it's lack of third party support. I think that, given the success of the Pearl as a consumer device, we may begin to see decent applications created.

    Since I use a Pearl, I can only comment on the pros of this one device. The stability of the OS has been mentioned several times, and I will second the statement. Compared with both Palm and Windows Mobile, I find the Blackberry OS to be a wonderful piece of programming. It is my favourite, in terms of stability and speed. Also, in the market niche that the Pearl has, it possesses the best form factor and battery life. When you compare it with the Treo or the various Windows Mobile smartphones (even the Q), you find that the Pearl does an amazing job of being both a phone and a data device.

    Serious Pro: Great Comms with great ease...unbeatable

    Serious Con: In the UK - Lack of Support - hence Pinstack


    (Pros: Can pretend to be busy to avoid conversations with the other half..

    Con: She has one too now and i cant escape)
