Compare the same application on both platforms and you will see how much fluid and practical it is on the iPhone. Case in point, Beejive.
I had several BBs and have gone back and forth between them and the iphone. The fluidity, quality and quantity of applications for the iphone wins hands down. Apps written for the ancient BB OS look like crap compared to the same application for the iphone. I said before, RIM needs to overhaul its OS if it ever hopes to stay competitive with the others. I was just reading the other day that the much anticipated OS 5.0 won't really be much different from OS 4.7. So much for any innovation from RIM.
