I have been using BlackBerrys for years and recently picked up the EVO. The EVO is amazing when it comes to browsing and media. However, it comes nowhere close to the BB in battery life, notifications, and notification customizations. I didn't realize how much I would miss this. Exceptions on the BlackBerry for SMS, email, calls, etc for individual contacts are something I miss a lot.

It boils down to what you need a device for. There are some 3rd party apps that kind of pick up where the Android OS lacks, but it's only a work around and not as smooth as the BB does natively.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
When you take things for granted, the things you are granted, get taken.

Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
