Post by emma1989 »

With the BlackBerry 9800 released today, what would you go for? BlackBerry or iPhone 4?

Seeing as simple attacks would allow someone to completely root an iPhone when browsing the web, no way in hell would I touch one:

Every platform has holes and leaks. This does not mean it is not a good product.

Any how, regarding your question here. I would go for an iPhone because:
  • I don't like the design of Blackberry phones. I do however love the design of the iPhone 4.
  • I prefer iOS over the Blackberry OS, because of usability and the fact that I already know how to use it.
  • The fact that there are more Apps available for the iPhone 4
  • And last, though the iPhone 4 is a complex phone, to me it still feels quite simple(the iOS and such).
Basically, this does not say whether or not you should get either the Blackberry or the iPhone, as it will depend on your personal needs and which requirements you have for a phone. Just go to a nearby store and try both phones and then decide.

Same exact reason.

Lol me too!!! I'd go with the blackberry before I'd go with the iPhone!!

Plus, they didn't exactly get off to a great start, they didn't include the little black rubber jobby to let the signal get in and out, and believe me, that was the most stupidist thing iI've ever seen a phone manufacturer do, and I've seen some stupid things!! :)

iPhone 4, for so many reasons. In my opinion you can't beat the interface of Apple products. The millions of apps make the iPhone not only fun but quite the tool when you need it to be, and I simply do not like the Blackberry design either.
