Well, as a new user who has been give a BB, all I can say is as a phone, they seem over rated. I accept the integration/synching of office emails to the phone works well, but actually using the phone is a poor experience with a level of sophistication far below many other brands and models. As far as the user whose company doesn't trust anything else.... well "nobody ever got fired for buying IBM" is an apt phrase. I have come across many IT (and other) depts who refuse to change suppliers (despite every user demanding it) simply because they can't be bothered to learn new configurations/set ups, maintenance requirements etc. The fact that better equipment was available elsewhere for less money was less important than avoiding exposing their lack of ability to solve problems they hadn't met before. I'm not suggesting this is the case with his company though, just pointing out that technical superiority is not the only reason for sticking with a supplier.
