    If Apple didn't have the ad power/savvy to market their stuff to the "hip" crowd then the birds would eat them first thing in the morning.

    Yes. I bow my hat to their ad process too. Hip cool songs. Cool images.

    It balances out both companies. If RIM had half the advertising Apple does, Apple wouldnt stand a chance.

    You've got that right, I'd love to see more advertising by RIM.

    Yup youre so right. With that being said, it does balance things out. Those that doesnt know better will flock to iphone because its everywhere compared to RIM. Those that does know better, well, knows better.

    Kinda like the dell commercial a few years back..

    Vince said it all.

    I mean, iPhone HAS a market, but right now it's way overhyped. Not only that, but phones like the Instinct, and the LG Dare go toe-to-toe with iPhone. Freaking BB is a world of it's own. And they "pwn".

    I hate watching these reviews on youtube and such with Bolds and what-not against the iPhone. The people who do the reviews are very biased toward iPhone to begin with, and use prereleased hardware against apple products that have been out for over a year. It's all humorous to me.

    But all-in-all Apple does have a great marketing strat, I wish Rim did too. But hey, their loss, our gain.

    There is nothing wrong with the iPhone. It's target market is different. Both are phones, where they differ is the "smart" part

    iPhone is idea, if you spend your time on YouTube and surf the web. No other phone on the planet can do that better than the iPhone. (Symbian, Windows Mobile, Palm, BlackBerry).

    BlackBerry is ideal if you need email and messaging. No one can come close to what the BlackBerry offers in terms of email.

    Decide what your needs are first, then choose your phone.

    Your right Apple has done a hell of a job with marketing, and advertisement all that stuff. And that is why that device is doing so well

    My nephew bought the new G3 and the first thing he did was wrap it up in a plastic shell to keep it clean. He uses it as a storage device for music. My 8330 is less than 2 months old and it looks like it has been used as a hammer now and then. Although I don't use a hammer on the job, my Curve works great and helps me earn a living. I guess the iPhone and the Berry have seperate and distinct mission statements.

    They sure do, their banner is always placed behind home plate, and the broadcasters always seem to mention it when they leave for a commerical.

    The iphone is a solid piece of hardware that has forced everyone to up thier game just to compete in the consumer market! Its not worth anything as a business tool, but the fact that we now have the storm, dare, G1, etc. is evidence of the type of game changing effect of the iphone! And in the long run, is better for us. So don't bash it. Its been great for everyone! RIM knows if they don't put real effort into things that we want, instead of the same boring way of doing things, then the BB will fall.

    Right said GE. Both have different features and they are well known for it.
