rambo47, THAT was very well said! I'd like to just add, we've been promised a Mac BB solution from RIM for years now and we're all still waiting. Seems the iPhone is also pushing RIM to service the Mac OS. This Mac BB desktop better be solid or RIM stands to lose more once BB users over to the iPhone.

Apple won't even blink as they're not really counting on sales from BlackBerry users switching to the iPhone. The smartphone market is big enough for RIM, Apple, and a bunch of others all to have great success. I'm a life-long Mac user who never got the iPhone bug. I probably have one or more of every other Apple product out there, but the iPhone leaves me cold. My wife loves her though. Honestly, there is no "iPhone killer" out there, nor will there be. Apple has created a bar-setting device, blending form and function (like they have from the beginning) and it's driving innovation for the entire industry. Plenty of room for everyone, and the best advice RIM can take is to simply do their own thing and cater to their own customer base.
