Does Skyfire know ANYTHING about Apple????

First of all, we can prettymuch all agree that the only advantage Skyfire has on any of the competition is the fact that it has brought flash to the windows mobile and symbian platforms.

other than that, it sucks.

And Apple absolutely hates flash.

Skyfire is completely out of it's mind if they think they will EVER get in on Apple's iPhone.

Or they can try and get the US government involved...

Apple would be smart to let skyfire in the app store, its a way of going around adobe and still offering iphone users flash....BUT apple is only smart when it comes to sucking money out of its blind followers

I know, I hate being blinded by Apple, it's a cruel addiction I just can't seem to overcome.

I'm mindless, I'm a sheep. I dream about Apple and using it's inferior products constantly.

Can you help me?

Seriously, you seem wiser and more educated than I, a lowly Apple user and "fanboy"

I can't take this blindness anymore! Someone please help me in my sheep-like attitude!!!

You sir have opened my eyes.

Right because any company could release basically the same exact phone for three years in a row and people buy it all three times

No, blackberry models are typicall very different from one another from year to year. The OS is similar, but not the hardware. compare the Tour to the 8703e

Hey, I had the 8700 series (don't remember exact model) for a long time. I loved that phone!

Menno to be honest, people do that with Blackberry's and now Android phones (well not quite 2 years). I have went from a 2g to a 3gs. Which isn't too too bad.

This isn't directed at you, but I hate this hate crap, be it on any device. If somebody enjoys using a Blackberry, Android, iPhone or WebOS device, so be it.

There is a lot more differences between a blackberry world edition and a tour than there was between the 3g and the 3gs

I don't mind it if someone prefers using one device or another, but justfinethanku is known to hop in and blast other OS's, so I saw the oppertunity for an amusing quip and posted it. If it was you (or someone else to just likes the OS) and made the same comment, I most likely wouldn't say anything

Haha... wasn't the blackberry switch to 3G about a year after Apple threw 3G into thier phones, and the near doubling of processing power of the iPhone and doubling of the memory of more significant difference than anything blackberry has done???

Menno, you are on point about a LOT of stuff, but dude, your just dead wrong on this point.

More memory is kind of a moot point since blackberry memory is mostly external

Actually Verizon blackberry's were 3g for quite a bit before the bold. The Curve was released in 2008, around the same time as the 3g iphone.


Going from the world edition to the tour you would get:

-Camera
-higher resolution screen
-approx 2x the internal memory
-higher capacities supported for SD cards
-redesigned device (you might say they all look the same, but the change from blackberry to blackberry is pretty different than that from iphone to iphone)
-Faster processor
-One of the best keyboards out there and noticeably different from the world edition (or curve)

Not to mention the stability of OS 4.7 over previous versions.

🤣 for all the apple users out there who think skyfire will not help think again. Apple would be a better product if it had some sort of flash platform browser like Skyfire. The problem still with apple is the video quality. Everyone else is getting on board with higher processors and 480x800 resolution screens. Apple is still using a 320x480 resolution screen!!! WTF....Video quality is so much better on many other devices. maybe the iphone 4 will bring some better quality.

Opera Mini is superior to Safari anyway...

I would be willing to put money on the fact you do NOT own an iPhone.

I do- and I would guess I was one of the first people with Opera mini for the iPhone. I love it! Now if I would actually be notified when I got emails I'd almost be happy with the thing.

Yeah, be sure to post your thoughts in detail if you can. I'd like to spread the gospel according to Opera.

And I'd wager you haven't used Opera Mini. I wonder who'd win?

I'm thinking me.

Opera Mini is absolute garbage... of course I've used the FREE application! haha...

Dude, it's fast, WHEN you can actually see the page. And when the page loads it is near-unreadable and requires you to zoom into the text wich is in 1 font and cannot be changed in size at all.

The rendering is garbage. Some pages, in fact a LOT of pages don't even show up.

I would rather wait the extra 5-10 seconds for Safari to load pages correctly then have a quick loading garbage browser.

If you use the browser for longer than 10 minutes it makes you want to kill yourself and everyone around you.

Agreed strongly... to add to that , apple will only let the input another APP just as every other company or doveloper has such as the mercury browser,,, skyfire will get nothing more than an app in with the iphone and they are dreaming big, REAl BIG if they think they are going to be allowed to have standard equip with the future iphones such as an alternate built in browser such as safari...
