I think the main advantage of BB used to be that they were the first and only smartphone. Today, some people are sticking with it because they are used to it, know it, and unwilling/unable to learn something new and different.

Yes, it has some unique qualities and features as mentioned earlier in this thred, but its efficiency of interface and battery life are arguable. The reliability is questionable, with many outages lately. And I didn't mention the Blacberry Enterprise Server cost and hassle.

I would argue that a good Android or IOS phone, that costs the same as a BB ($200), can communicate more efficiently than a BB.
