    Default Reasons why Blackberry is Better than IOS or Android?

    Thorsten Heins isn't currently registered at Android Central but wanted me to try to get some feedback that he can hopefully use to turn RIM around and allow it to become dominant in the mobile world again.

    Anyone have any ideas....

    1) The keyboard is extremely awesome for people that need a physical keyboard.
    2) You'll look smarter to others when they see you have a Blackberry and people will assume you are uber intelligent...

    Anyone got any other ideas either serious or in jest?

    You could just wait and see what BB10 has to offer before making such parody threads.

    BlackBerry still has the best security in the business. And I've never used a device with a better keyboard. BlackBerry used to have more advantages but they were asleep at the wheel for too long and the competition caught up and passed them by. I'm a 10-year crackberry addict in recovery with an iPhone. I'm still not passionate about my iPhone like I was with all my BlackBerrys, but as a Mac user I decided to give the iPhone a try. My issues with BlackBerry were the relatively small screen and lack of access to subfolders on BIS.

    Security, BBM, and Email. That's about it.

    I currently have a blackberry and I would agree with this except the fact that I think imessage incorporated into the sms is a bit better.

    Well iMessage works a bit differently than BBM so I wouldn't really compare the two.

    I'm rocking an 8520 and I like it. Would I change to android? Hell yeah. Would I rather have another phone? Yes. But hey,. I know that when I get a new phone I will miss this one.

    BlackBerrys are good, and if I'm happy with BB5 than with BB7 I would be more than happy. And before you start judging other phones and companies, maybe, just maybe try those phones out. BB10 is going to be very good. If you don't believe me, just wait and see. Stop making fun of other devices without even trying them, and BB10 hasn't even come out and you are already making fun of it, but if someone says that BB10 is great, your opinion instantly changes? "Close your eyes, cover your ears, LISTEN" - got it?

    I've had BlackBerry's so I know what I'm talking about. Plus people will always make fun of stuff they aren't a fan of even before it comes out, that's the downside of the internet. (One of many actually)

    Blackberry was the first to make smartphones,Blackberry 10 os is all touchy feely,Blackberry builds a phone, not a browser/mp3/space rocket app controller launching station; that also makes calls sometimes,so to sum up blackberry is obviously better than IOS or Anroid.

    I tell you what if you could install a Linux distro on a blackberry I'd even consider the question however considering if I had the bb source code I could edit/modify and yes even compile it on my ANDROID PHONE

    Yes BB makes a good PHONE but it based entirely on java and that is a good thing but what's so sad about that is RIM fell behind....

    Hmmm RIM could catch up maybe if they made a developers phone and targeted Java developers custom ide compiler spitting out
    .jars left and right also .apks and .ipa's then and maybe then you could even start to compare BB to android

    And as far as apple goes I might as well staple my nuts to the table and hold a sance asking the dead ghost of Steve jobs if could get a payment plan on my next software update.....no matter how badass the device is it doesn't count if I can't use it the way I want
    Apple isn't open source friendly
    they can go to hell:thumbdown:

    I have used all three platforms - blackberry, iOS and Android and I agree with the first point about the keyboard and email integration and this is one of the reasons why people are still with blackberry. Hopefully we will see some major improvement with BB10. Also, I don't think we can really compare blackberry with iOS and Android and even more, can't really say blackberry has fell behind because they have been more or less pushed and tossed aside from the 'smartphone wars.' Blackberry were doing fine until Apple and Samsung started being greedy.

    Welcome to business firstly. That's like saying Mac would have been fine in its early days if it wasn't for microsoft.

    I don't want my texts emails and all that in one app I like my separation.

    Bb10 may be an improvement over its old stuff but I doubt it will regain its luster.

    I like the traditional classy look to a BB, were it almost seams as a luxury good... but with smart phones they lagged behind because its difficult to drag that onto a plain glass screen... now PRADA tried it on LG and it looks like... you all know what i am thinking.. If BB can find a way to do it classy like their keyboards they will be on a real winner.

    Ericsson (before they were merged/bought with/by sony) made the first smartphone.

    BlackBerry was doing fine because their opposition was Windows Mobile. When iOS then Android exploded, RIM had no answer.

    Mmm.. I had a Blackberry once. The only thing I really liked about it was the speed and precision with which I could type on the physical keyboard. I still miss that from time to time, though the touch keyboards on my Lumia 920 and Nexus 7 are both excellent and compared with the Blackberry, I can type on them with about 90% the speed and 70% the accuracy (or vice versa).

    The mail client was pretty robust from what I remember. BBM was useless to me because almost no one else I knew had a Blackberry. The only other thing that made a real impression on me was their app store, Blackberry World or whatever.. Not for anything positive though, but because of how atrociously bad most of the apps were. Many were absurdly priced compared to any other device and most of them were underwhelming at best and buggy and crash-prone or riddled with permissions issues. I found all of the developers I tried to contact for support really wanted nothing tho do with me and seemed to regret ever making a Blackberry app in the first place.

    It was a great idea initially, but I get the sense that by the time I got there, about three years ago. I was stepping among the ruins of a crumbling, but once proud empire.

    I know Blackberry fans are pretty passionate about the brand, though I'm sure their ranks must have dwindled by now. I'm curious to see if they can still save the Blackberry with BB10. From what I've seen it looks pretty impressive. Windows Phone is my phone OS of choice though (and Android for tablets) but I'll be paying attention to them this year. If nothing else, I think the competition will benefit all of us because it will ensure that no one rests on their laurels too much, especially Microsoft, who has the most to lose from a Blackberry resurgence.

    Eh, I'd say the early Nokia Communicator phones in the mid 1990s were the first real smartphones. Simon was never really a mainstream product that sold in any meaningful numbers. I had a Palm 180g and I remember that being pretty extraordinary back in 2002... It had a browser and the 180g model I had had a graffiti writing area rather than a keyboard, so it was truly a touch screen smartphone.

    But now you have changed the context. You said smartphone not mainstream.

    It may have been the first smart phone but Ericsson coined the term so it wouldn't have been called a smart phobe
