Never ever question the leader.
And RIM has a barely usable web browser.

I used a Blackberry well before they were phones. I switched to the original iphone, iPhone 3G & iPhone 3GS. I will not purchase the iPhone 4, I had enough. I am currently using a Bold 9650 and quite frankly it is not much different than the last Blackberry I used in 2007. I will be moving to the Droid X or incredible.

The OS is so clunky and the web browser sucks. It is amazing to me that RIM cannot put out a usable browser. Says a lot. Yes, a decent web browser is very important to me.

I think RIM should put out an Android device.

I will say this, the Email and calendaring connected to an exchange server cannot be beat on the Blackberry. If that is all you need, than the blackberry is for you. However, other devices are catching up and offer so much more.

Seriously..?

The OS 5 browser is much better compared to the old 4.2 browser we had 3 years ago. Big difference.

I don't want to take a stab at RIM.. but I do believe they are falling in a lower state in this smartphone competition.. I hate to play the stocks game but .. its sinking from 2008

I believe once RIM starts pleasing both the business and the casual side.. RIM will skyrocket again..

It will be very hard cause they need better 3rd party support .. especially when it comes to their "apps" and then they gotta keep up with all the BES, security etc. stuff on their business aspect

I don't know.. maybe i'm just rambling now.

In reality none of the currently avalible phones are that swift. They suffer in one form or another of:

1. Poor battery life
2. Software issues
3. Reliablity problems
4. Questionable service from the carriers
5. Apps that adversely affect the phone
6. Screen design
7. Keyboard design
8. Camera issues

Very true. Of course if the perfect phone did exist I would be using it right now
