Default Seven reasons why BBs are better than the IPhone

Please Login to Remove!

We have to be honest with each other. People are going to compare them. It's inevitable. BlackBerrys and IPhones are the two greatest things to happen to the mobile communications world since two cans were tied to a string and people will always compare the two of them based on their opinions and a few facts that are twisted to their advantage. I offer you my very own list of reasons that I believe makes the BlackBerry a superior device over the IPhone.

7. More Hardware Variety
Don't like touch screen? That's ok. Want a full Qwerty keyboard? We've got that. How bout the love-it or hate-it SureType keyboard? We invented it. Flip? Yep. Slider? That's rumored to be coming pretty soon. RIM knows its customers like variety and they offer it in leaps and bounds.

6. More Carrier Variety

Yeah it does, but it took over three years for Apple to finally release a technology that has been available on BlackBerrys since the first device with a camera came out. And even after they made their phones capable of MMS, AT&T blocked it for another 3 months.

User replaceable battery.
Until Apple invents that, the iPhone has a crippling disadvantage FOR ME.

This site still gives me a chuckle. iPhone fanboys rage against it too, which is also quite a hoot!

Yes it's an old debate and perhaps the horse is being repeatedly mutilated post humous, but it's a fun debate as well.

The differences are preferential, really. I'd have to agree these conversations are getting boring, unless of course somebody is an extreme fan boi of one or the other, then it gets slightly entertaining.

even if.. it's the standard argument really.. whoever is an extreme fanboy will do whatever it takes to show their phone is better than the best etc.. however ridiculous the arguement may seem. it does get boring, unless some people start with their sardonic comments, then we have fun

Ungh... two problems with this Topic:
  1. This is worn out and, as already pointed out, boring. There has to be something better to talk about. Anyone that feels that they must continue to bring this up must feel some remorse for owning one device over the other.
  2. I hate when people blatantly try and ride the coattails of a successful website by "posting" here with a link for "more" details that is on their own website. Either post here, or post there, but don't post a teaser here hoping to get traffic to your own site. How is this any different than any other spam that gets eliminated here?
