Ok, first I have the blackberry 8330. Just checked out the Tour today, and I have to say that I wasn't too overly impressed. Upgraded internal memory, HD screen, and a better camera, is not worth me having to lay out sveral hundred dollars. I want to know why is it that whoever is behind the development of these Blackberry's, are unable to design a phone where the Media Card is NOT a Media Card, but a Memory Card. I know so many including myself who want applications that are useful to us, but because these applications are memory hungry,and go on to the internal memory of the Blackberry, can only mean one thing, slow the system down. A Verizon Manager and I were having this discussion, and his answer was to delete the programs you truly don't want. I thought this was the greatest answer ever, sacrifice a program to use a program. Should be on a Blackberry Commercial. A friend of mine had said that the reason they do this is so that you have to keep up grading your Blackberry for more memory, that if everything went onto an extended memory card you wouldn't need to upgrade. Made sense to me, but look at all the perks of having a memory card with all your programs and media on it, you could eliminate the desktop manager if your phone should crash or needed to upgrade, and get rid of that PIN number crap to download a program. Here is what I like to see in a Blackberry:
1) Extended memory that anything can go in it, and can be upgraded.
2) Control over the lighting on my screen, and NOT some sensor.
3) Control when that light decides to shut off. I am trying to read email or a text message and the light goes off when it pleases. This is my number one pet peeve.
4) Get rid of adding your PIN to download a program, no other manufacturer uses this.
Just venting. Has anyone been able to find a work around these issues above, please let me know. Thanks!
