We all don't want RIM to share the fate of Palm.
What counts, is that you buy the device that works for you. I would not be too worried about Apple's success. Please do not define commercial success as an exclusive North American concept. There are many small differences between iphone/Android/BlackBerry.
My Berry has been able to to use every type of bluetooth/headset/headphones that I have thrown at it. It's funny, because last year when I bought my Bluetooth headset, my friend with his iphone wanted the same set. Trouble was, he had to buy a $70 adapter to be be able to stream the music to his headset and use controls at the same time. The two points you outlined are not simple, as I said, Apple took some time to implement the same.
