I guess you are the person RIM was thinking of .... Not a knock. Just acknowledgement that there is no best device, only the device that is best for you.
This paragraph rang true with me:
Great apps. I know the Blackberry store offers nowhere near the selection as the iphone app store, but I've found nearly everything I need for my purposes. I don't play games on my Blackberry so the lack of games doesn't bother me. My wife has tons of games on her iphone so if that's your interest, an iphone is probably better for you.
When I see the new forum members ask for the must have apps, I think how I don't think in terms of the apps themselves, but categories that are must have for me: a local search, mapping/navigation . . . And my needs are very simple. I try different apps in those categories, though in the last couple years I experiment less, and I tend to like the blackberry apps. Blackberry maps and now the new traffic app are great for me.
