A VERY large reason why I dumped my Blackberry was it's total and complete failure as a media player. As week as multimedia support is on the Droid it is still a massive step up from the BB.
Blackberry and Android both suffer from the exact same multimedia flaw and that is neither offers the desktop integration, media management or convenient store to buy, rent and download music, movies or TV shows from. Aside from that, neither platform offers anything that even closely resembles the iPod app on the iPhone.
The ONLY people that could POSSIBLY prefer the Blackberry over an iPhone as a media player would be those among us that haven't ever seen the iPhone/iPod Touch. As much as I love my Droid and all that it does for me I keep my 64GB iPod Touch (and now 64GB iPad) for multimedia. Seen them all, and nobody can touch Apple.
I agree that iPod is a little better, but it's not THAT much better. I also have an iPod Touch, but it never gets used. I use my BB for everything. It doesn't lack enough that I feel the need to turn on the Touch.
I'm lost, what's the reason for an iPad? Other than novelty, of course.
