Any one remeber peterlfromsweden? Biggest Bada fan I ever met. He was all on board Bada's bandwagon and defended it almost all the way to it's death, leaving Phone Arena just a couple months before Samsung discontinued it.

He was a fun fan boy.

Oh, and don't forget BlackBerry cuz BlackBerry isn't dead yet. I hope they will make a comeback with the help of their CEO John Chen.
