RIM Blames Outage on Messenger Update
Replying to: BB ? by stephen5688
I have never had a blackberry, tell me why do people need one. Want most smart phones do what a BB does? I know my Nokia and Iphone both have push email. I am not putting down BB, I just want to know why people prefer them over other devices
Blackberry started out as a business oriented company. In recent years, they have migrated toward the huge growing smartphone consumer market where the iphone of course dominates.
Your right, most smart phones generally do most things that Blackberries do these days. I still think of them as work devices first and play second though so I think that is why you still run into many that can't live without them.
Android, WebOS, and the iphone OS have newer, slicker operating systems for many. Probably a matter of personal taste for many consumers.
