No, actually I am not confusing Bloackberry with Apple. I am frustrated by the closed arcthectiture strategy. I have contacted a number of software developers (Delorme and Landware) to see if they have Blackberry products available and I have been told that they have not purchased the rights to develop Blackberry software. In contrast to Windows Mobile, it seems that Blackberry has decided to closely control who develops software for their products. This is a similar strategy to Apple. The result with Apple, and I also am begining to see with Blackberry, is a severe limitation on the quality and selection of available software, and artifically high prices.
