Plus the 3rd party software list at release is going to be rich. SEGA is putting out a few games, Pangea is too. Developers will flock to the iPhone in droves because of the SDK.

There is absolutely BlackBerry will get software support like the iPhone will because A) Everyone is already looking toward iPhone including big name mobile developers. And B) The SDK is light years beyond what RIM has produced.

OK Regarding the non-removable battery in the iPhone - just carry arround an emergency charger that is either precharged or can hold cheap store-bought batteries to juice up that dead iPhone. Either way, you have to carry SOMETHING ELSE in addition to the actual handset. If you have a BlackBerry, it would be an extra charged battery so who cares if it's a simple emergency charger instead?

I think a lot of the "grumpiness" over the proliferation of iPhone 3G threads at BBForums is that it finally is getting a decent-enough push solution coupled with that awesome screen, UI and 3G speed. These are all compelling things.

Avoiding these threads is being ignorant, IMHO.

If it weren't for the iPhone there would be no BOLD.

Wow.

They are brave with the iPhone going for $200.
Do not be FOOLED by the $200 price. You will be paying an extra $10 a month for the plan plus another $5 to $10 extra for text messaging so add as muich as $480 to the costs for your iPhone2!

greg, the data is now going to be the same as all other 3G devices. Any word yet on the 3G data for the Bold?

also, they make portable battery packs, car chargers and everything else. its not like the accessory makers are not making tons of products for the device.

i think the Bold has nothing to do with the iphone, its the Thunder that is a result of the iphone.

Test according to RIM the thunder has been in production for over three years so how is it in response to the iphone. This is where animosity is built. People are always assuming something was built to respond to something else.

iphone has been in production longer than that. And according to the RIM resident as late as last year they thought touchscreen typing would never work for RIM.
utimately why does it matter, both are moving but into different areas. apple is in the consumer market moving into enterprise and RIM owns enterprise and expanding into the consumer market. Like has been said before why does it have to be good vs. evil? pretty stupid to put it in that way.

I hear what you are saying Gregg.

But for a lot of people, 10 bucks a month seems like nothing, where as $100 extra at purchase date would be hard to come by.

I am hoping to sell my Curve, which is barely used, to help me get the money for the next phone.

If I go with the iPhone, I could also sell my iPod to help offset the cost.

And I agree with the above, I think you need to be educated, and well, on BOTH devices you are trying to choose from to be able to make a good personal decision.

maybe because this is a BB forum. Id say that on the iphone forums the BB would be evil. It just is that way and no one will ever change it. I just get sick of reading about the iphone every where I go including forums, newspaper and so on. I am really glad RIM has started advertising to give another side.

I think its just all the hype that gets peoples blood going. I mean look at you for instance you are not a bb user but post here daily. So it keeps the iphone stuff alive.

why does someone have to be educated on both devices? I have no reason to be educated on the iphone I never plan on carrying one.

Well, it's not that you HAVE to be.

But if you are trying to decide between the two, then you should be.

If you are "married" to Blackberry and know that you will never own another brand no matter what, then yea, I guess you don't need to be educated on the other phone.

In that case, it does say IPhone in the title of the thread.

My guess is, you are not forced to click on the thread, but chose to do so anyway.
