Default BB 9500 V iphone

i have been using BB products for years now & resisted as far as i could the onslaught of apple into the smartphone arena..i even posted on here how i would never use or want an iphone. however a friend of mine allowed me to use his 3g for around 4 months now & must say, what it is designed to do - it does very well and i have been very impressed by the applications and obvious ease of connecting to itunes. however, as time has gone on the primary function of the device, i.e as a communications device, is not without its faults and frustrations, the list below comprises of my plus & minus and is not exhaustive:

cannot run two apps at once
fiddly text UI
fiddly email UI
fiddly phone UI
not enough preference settings
Bluetooth limited
No voice control
surprisingly no wireless sync with an imac for itunes
connectivity is effortless- it just works
exchange server sync works like a dream right out of the box
only crashed twice in 4 months
as many apps as you can shake a stick at

but i am going back to my BB storm, the reasons are very simple, you will find that apart from music and podcasts ( both available on storm) you will hardly use any of the apps as you will be too busy getting on with life, also the ease of functionality after using the iphone is actually a joy, and the iphone is ...sorry to say....soulless..i like the iphone..but i love the BB
