    What iPhone/BB apps does Android NOT have?

    Just wonderin if anyone is aware of any must have iPhone/BB apps that are not available (or a reasonably comparable app) and why are they not available to us (hardware or drm issues for instance). Netflix is the obvious example.
    I have never used an iPhone/BB but was wondering if we're missing anything over the other platforms.

    there's a lot of things that we're missing from the iphone marketplace but we're definitely catching up. i know there's a lot but nothing pops to mind right now.

    "Must have" is very subjective. Is there a particular app you are needing/wanting?

    Blackberry users have BBM. A lot of people that switch from blackberry to other smartphones always complain of missing it.

    I don't think there's anything at all that great about it, to my understanding its just an enhanced instant messaging service that happens to be ubiquitious.

    I thought I read a few weeks ago that RIM was going to open up BBM to other platforms. Maybe that was just speculation or a hoax, but I swear I read it recently.

    There was a nice app on bb called webmessenger messagealerts. It gave me some pretty granular alerting features such that I could have different ringtones for different calling numbers,sms,mail recipents,mail keywords,etc. There was another app that also let you have different led light patterns for some emails. All in all, i liked android more but there are stilll a few things bb did better.
