    Well, that was a very interesting interview. I like the fact that he didn't make it into a Google vs Apple interview, (although he did mention that Android would come out on top) but he really demonstrated how poorly RIM is doing in the Market, even with it's latest phones. We all know what a disaster the Storm was (I still have one) and it doesn't look like the Torch will do that well since it's on AT&T. If I had my choice between a Torch and the iPhone, I'd take the iPhone in a heartbeat.

    Thanks for bringing that to us.

    BlackBerry isn't going anywhere. It's still the preferred corporate manufacturer due to security.

    BlackBerry's aren't bad phones, they're just not what the average user wants anymore. I mean, almost every BlackBerry app costs money and the majority of users aren't willing to pay for an app that is offered on Android free.

    However, corporate users that need an app are willing to pay for it.

    And back to my last point, you can't go wrong with BlackBerry security.

    I recently converted to droidism and somedays I have a feeling of guilt and shame when I stumble across my blackberry. Guilt and shame of cheating on my bb. It was a great phone. Its sort of like losing your first love. It will hold a place in my heart.
