Who really cares? I mean formerly being a BlackBerry user and loving it and finding that it met my needs for years, I'd love to buy one again...if the specs matched up with offerings from Apple, Samsung, HTC and LG. The apps alone are one reason. I stay away from BlackBerry. The hardware while generally well built lacks form factor that the others have down pat, the UI is nothing to be excited about nor is it intuitive. With a company that shifted focus to consumers in the mid 2000s it only took a few short years to lose that focus and completely alienate users by not changing fast enough to what consumers demand. Both feet in the grave, they keep pulling the dirt to their faces literally in this market. TMobile is a huge partner for Android and BlackBerry and takes more initiative to take risks with plan pricing, technology and marketing..knowing this, I feel that if TMobile feels BlackBerry is no longer a good option for the consumer, it likely is correct in offering another platform. Not like the higher data usage from other platforms is good for TMobile, in fact, it clogs up the network more so it isn't like they are gaining more from it other than paying off customers high JUMP swaps for new devices. Cost efficiency for TMobile, BlackBerry is a better choice not only for the price and network resources but for the end user, built to last. But if TMobile takes a risk giving up the profitability of it, you KNOW something isn't worth it anymore.
