    I've been using the new Google Buzz and a friend of mine and I we talking about Buzz on the droid and a possible widget for it. A friend of hers chimed in about the Blackberry saying there wasn't a widget for it yet either. Then this other guy (don't know who?) Said that Blackberries were better than Droids! I said BB's are OK toys!

    I guess BB users are going to die a hard death!! LOL!

    Older doesn't mean better.
    Talking to bb people is like talking to grandma in a nursing home.

    Blackberrys are pretty good phones if you don't want a non slide out physical keyboard. Besides a old OS that hasn't changed in years and very bad browsing experience their not all that bad. I had 3 different BB but wouldn't trade my droid for any or all of them.

    For business use Blackberries are far far better devices than the Droid. Period. Neither platform deserves to be called a "toy," but the Droid is far closer than a Blackberry. When the Droid can support email encryption, password protection for email, and a host of other critical needs for corporations, get back to me. Until then, there is a reason that BB phones continue to dominate the smartphone market.

    Just write an app that requires you to input login information before it opens. That wouldn't be hard to do.

    If you want to compare Blackberry with a Droid then pick the one phone that's in direct competition with Droid and that would be a Storm 2. Droid just blows it away with browser speed, virtual keyboard and apps available for it. There is no way you would have anything like Swype on a Storm 2.

    Anyway the hardware is a mess, buttons don't work correctly. Blackberry may be better for business but for someone who wants a phone that can really perform the Droid smokes it in every way.

    There are def a few things I miss from my Storm that the Droid cannot do. I would love to have a combined inbox & an AIM app that doesn't disconnect all the frickin time. Oh also an IM client that allows you to send voice notes...

    That being said, the Droid smokes it in pretty much everything else.

    Oh really? Tell you what, you write an app that intercepts the call to "email" (which is not a separate app) that can be used without rooting a phone and there are a number of Fortune 1000 corporations who would be happy to pay you for it. Want to pick up some serious change? Write an app that encrypts emails from a Droid.

    Droids are great phones. But RIM-based phones have half the entire smartphone market for a reason. They are serious business devices. The Droid is not yet in the same league.

    Email Encryption - The stock client supports SSL encryption, how does BB do it better?

    Password Protection for Email - What exactly does that mean? Android supports password protection for the device. Why would I need to authenticate more than once, how does that help?

    Whew, the fanboyism is rampant everywhere. No single device will suit everyone out there -- not even the Droid. The BB has its place. Do you really need to bash other device users to make you feel better about your own choice?

    Keep the thread lighthearted and fun. If it gets offensive we'll have to shut it down.

    Mikespe pm me if you want it shut down......

    The only people I ever suggest blackberries to are the hard core corporate guy who needs his email/calender synced the second he saves it on the computer. Yes the blackberries have their place, but I do not think they're superior. They are different. I do not believe that the blackberry was ever designed to be a phone like the droid is. It was meant to give people instant access to the email that they needed on the spot, with the ability to read/edit some documents if so be it, with internet abilities to have to check something on the go. Not really to be a social connection, complete portable laptop, or a game system. That being said when someone comes to me and says they want a smartphone so they can do anything other then needing to get their business stuff to them all the time for a huge company, I usually steer them away from BBs.
