    88xx vs. Iphone, which one will sell more?

    Advertisement



    To tell you guys the truth, I think IPhone will win this one since a lot people are brainwashed by Apple. Look at the Ipod... people buy it because it says IPOD.. but little that they know there are more MP3 players out there that's better than the the IPOD. People just need to explore their options a little more.

    But hey, I'm not against apple. Just stating my opinion.

    I too will take the BB over the Iphone. That being said, I think the IPhone will sell more units than the 8800 because it has wider appeal and name recognition.

    Yeah maybe the first year but it's not even a real smartphone just an expensive toy phone
    Never forget a thing, lots of people love apple but but lots of people never had to speak to their ***** customer service

    My 2 cents
    I'm french canadian so I can also help you in french, just PM me
    UNLESS it is for a BETA OS, it's at your own risk and I won't support it

    "Better" is always subjective.

    It's a tough call. iPhone has more universal appeal but it's proce is really high, even for people used to shelling out the big bucks for smartphones. On the other hand, RIM has virtually guaranteed sales with its entrenchment in the corporate world. They've got a pretty decent start into the consumer market as well.

    In any case, it's apples and oranges. I don't know why people keep trying to compare the two.

    I will definitely take the 8800 over the iphone because to me it's too teenagie. What do you guys think?

    Like stated above, If apple threw the IPOD name/logo, on a pile of dog poo, lots of people would go out and get it, 'cause of the IPOD name!!!!!!!!1

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    IMHO. IPhone will sell more. However it is a POS compared to a product put out by RIM. I am a college student and it is very popular for guys (and some girls too) to have BB's. Makes life so easy when trying to keep in touch with lots of friends all over the place as well as professors for class and work. But unfortunately most of this population just want it for the look and they see apple as "cooler.". Too bad for them they don't do their research and find the iPhone will be lacking in areas that an 8800 is going to kill in. Verdict; iPhone sells more but in the end SUCKS! 8800 all the way!

    I find it funny, that while Apple and the whole iPhone is a slick looking product, with brand recognition, that they decided to put it on one of the worst networks(IMHO) in the country! Sure, it has the most people, but(depending on where you live) it DOES drop the most calls! Plus, there customer service isn't open on Sundays!

    Good luck Apple, first, in all the lawsuits you have to sort out before the launch date, and second, to putting your phone on AT&T's network...

    Iphone, because Apple will spend a lot more on advertising. That's the only reason. The price difference will scare some off, but it's all about the advertising, and Apple/Cing will do it. Why else do you think Creative mp3 players sell so few units? They're as good as the Ipod, with better features and maybe a little cheaper too. They don't advertise. BB advertising is minimal compared to Apple.

    I personally think that the iphone is overated. It will sell the most to snob-nosed kids. The 8800 though is by far going to explode in business sales. I have the pearl and love it and when the 8800 gets a little cheaper (let's say in about a year or so) I will most likely upgrade.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Yup. As well as numberous threads on:

    Why the 8800 doesn't have 3G.
    Why the 8800 doesn't have WiFi.
    Why the 8800 isn't a worthwhile upgrade from the Pearl.
    Can you browse/email/whatever without a Blackberry data plan?
    Does XXX use SMS?
    When will the 8800 be released?
    When will the 8820 be released?
    When will Verizon get a new Blackberry?
    Why didn't my carrier get the exclusive?


    ...it doesn't stop people from posting yet another thread on any of those...
