I always wanted a good reason to go to Blackberry.

Just dont expect the phone to be a gaming powerhouse or media machine. Other than that you are good to go.

Maybe after they tweak the OS, it'll be better. This isn't quite a competitive OS right now.

Are you talking about Blackberry 10? Because the only problem the reviewer had were with the lack of a home screen, which is just a personal opinion, and some kind of problem syncing with Google calendar, which can be easily fixed and which doesn't really matter to me because I don't use Google Calendar anyway....


The software sounds pretty good to me...

Inability to play well with Macs is a severe issue that should have been resolved LONG before they came out with this OS.

I don't regard that as a big issue, Blackberries have always had problems with Macs....and I'm not sure that Mac users with Blackberries are a very big market....

Nothing is wrong with anything I like, because I don't use the things that are wrong.

That's the ideology of the "true believers" and also of stock holders. Anytime something is broken or doesn't do something useful, its blamed on the users not using it right or not understanding what it was intended for.

How dare you expect sync software to actually sync stuff. Google Calendar? Who uses Google anyway?

Why should I care if something I never use works properly?

Honestly...tell me....why?

I understand that many people have problems with buffering in Netflix, I don't care because I don't subscribe to Netflix

I understand that many people the iPhone 5 has a WiFi problem,,I don't care because I don't have an iPhone 5

I understand that Federal Express often has a problem finding my apartment building, I don't care because I always use UPS...

I have enough problems with the things that I do use not working properly I sure as hell aren't going to worry about whether or not the things I don't use work...

Honestly, why SHOULD I care if a function I rarely if ever use doesn't work?

Why should it matter to me?

Why should I care?

Why am I supposed to be outraged about something I don't care about?

The WifFi sync function in iOS 6 doesn't work but I don't care because I have absolutely no use for WiFi sync....

It was resolved long ago. The only real issues I have had with the Mac software since it was introduced was its inability to put hacked unofficial operating stems on Blackberries. Hardly something most people would or should be doing anyway.
what issues are you having with it?

Honestly? Surveys show that the majority of Mac owners have Windows installed on it....if is really that big a deal for someone....he can install the syncing software in Boot Camp....that's what I did for years before they finally got a version of Desktop Manager that worked....

But to be completely honest I'm not sure it is really worth spending any money supporting Blackberry on Mac.....I mean that market is what.....10 people? Certainly not a lot.

Anyone who is a Mac user is already familiar with the 'not compatible with Mac' phenomenon and long ago learned how to work around it.

Probably all relies on what they plan on doing after they launch these initial phones and if they want to continue doing hardware+software or just be strictly software and license it out. Hopefully they continue to make hardware, because their previous phones were rather tank like and could take a beating. I wonder if they can find a way to input drop tests in their review as well.
