As much as some of the newer phones (Android) out there can do, I still love Blackberry for one simple reason. You press a button and the phone just goes. There is basically ZERO lag when performing basic functions like checking e-mail, sending a text message, or placing a call. Even on many of the top Android devices the lag time is noticeable. On lower-end Android devices?? Forget about it. Sure it's great that you can download several hundred thousand apps, but what good is a smartphone if it's not all that great at being a phone?
over in the "Review: BlackBerry 9330 Curve 3G" discussion:
Beating a Dead Horse
Why Won't This Device Go Away!
There is so much better out there than the BB Curve family for the same money or just a little bit more. Unless your job requires you to have one as in they gave you one and they are invested in the blackberry servers then forget it.
