Default Re: We are not dead (yet)

I am an IT professional. I admit that Blackberry is a better phone/ecosystem (at least the BES and management part of it). Unfortunately, the lack of major apps, and, the average user doesn't like Blackberry because it's perceived as uncool. I think the lack of apps hurts Blackberry, if only because most users get impressed with the ads (over 700,00 apps for Android and over 700,000 for iPhone), although typical users use less than 20 apps (although they will install much more). I hope that Blackberry survives, I think their new OS 10 is terrific and along with Windows Phone 8, are the only ones innovating from a UI perspective. Sadly, business users are now starting to ask for iPhones, and, companies will eventually go that route. :(
