My wife was just that. She was looking to buy a smartphone, liked BB, but was put off by what she saw me going thru in syncing MAC to my BOLD previously. Once she saw DM running on my MAC, she went to the shop and purchased 8900.
Assumption that Apple fans are somehow automatically iPhone users is wrong. Don't mean to start flame war here, but there are many reasons iPhone just doesn't cut it for business people. iPhone is probably the only Apple gadget I didn't feel tempted to buy in a very very long time, and I have something like 5 different ipods and 4 macs at home, and run a company with at least 25 Apple computers.
