"...they needed the physical QWERTY keyboard that they felt they could depend on for typing."

And yet, a BB 10 series with a physical keyboard is what? Three months away? Great move RIM/BB.

as usual apple icrap again as people always think that if you have an iphone then it means that you're superior, above the all, fantastic, rich, gorgeous and whatever. But the truth is apple iphone is getting worse as years come and never had any innovation to give. Android is still far way better than iOS but only few people knew that those who are smart enough to classify which one is the real innovative smartphone and those who is just hiding on the word "gorgeous" but just a crappy expensive.

No matter how much I hate those overpriced product that keep shown off by riches, at least they made a smart choice and make sure their device has adobe flash, hdmi, nfc and bluetooth file transfer, which create even more productivity...

Kudos to blackberry richman, who refuse any of the icrap

I'm interested in people but actually I don't know either one of them. Maybe it's because I'm living in Philippines

I have never seen such a collection of random ignorant hate as the gathering of idiots that live in PhoneArena's comments section! How can you hate people for makin a choice that you disagree with? And how can you not see that as the electronic bigotry that it is?

Of all the millionaires/billionaires on Wall Street (and in NYC), they chose that lack-luster lot?? First and foremost, Barbara (Corcoran) only knows how to check her email on that thing and yap-yap away; I've seen her personally. That Zillow app' probably took her two days to learn (four if she had to sync' her phone with iTunes to activate the purchase). That Yankee's guy, no wonder we're losing - ughhh!! That so-called "designer" probably satisfies her compulsions related to OCD with that keyboard; just about everyone I know in fashion has some degree of the disorder. Ishrak is the only normal one of the entire lot; and, unfortunately, I do not know him.

In my UES circles everyone is ditching (or has ditched) their BugBerries and iPhones.

I though I would get advice about productivity application here but nothing and I don't know who are these people, why we need to know the application they fave? Are you trying to make top list application with different way? well, it fail.

Better make top application or game based on what some well known people like: top games that top gamers choose. Top scientific application that well known scientist use to help their research, etc etc

Tex is smart for two reasons. He's a Yankee, and an iPhone user. Gooooooooo Tex, and play a little better defense at first base this year.
