What does "could they bite of BB more?" mean?

Take the look of the BB and try and make their crap phone look the same.

Looks pretty similar, but you can definitely tell the difference.

I am only seeing the bite in terms of the handheld market. It may pass for a Storm from a very great distance.

I really don't get the HTC thing. I haven't had one that wasn't just second rate hardware. The MDA/MDAII, since they were pretty much early PDA phones, I could over look the problems. But the Tilt and Fuze, are just second rate. The screen, voice quality and phone don't come close to RIM, iphone or even some of the other WM hardware yet HTC seems to get a lot of positive press.

Yeah I know a couple people that have HTC phones and they hate them, they are just waiting to be due for upgrade to get rid of them.

Meh. This sort of comment is echoed constantly. There are only so many permutations available when you're offering the same form factor (e.g. a few buttons and a full face touchscreen). It not only looks like a BB but also countless other wireless devices with a full touchscreen and some hard buttons on the face. How exactly should they have designed it differently?

I think they should have to make their back arrow face the other way
