ben4ever: blackberry is a very good way to waste productive time on pinging


thump up for u.u are very correct.i know during my service year(NYSC) how i used to ping.Always pinging till battery is down.when my BB was stolen,after my service year.I use that time for sth productive.My frnds always beg me to come back online/start using BB.Am Still contemplating whether to buy anor or not.But 2 months without BB make sense to me

BB is a solid enterprise device. it was built originally for business uses and offered zero entertainment or fun factor

if you know what you are doing and you are business minded, with just a BB and absolutely no laptop or desktop around you, you can keep in touch with your business associates all over the world as if you are working from your office. no other smartphone gives you that level of dexterity, security and robustness when there's no PC around. you can churn out solid business proposals with text and graphics on the go. you can stay on top of all your emails no matter how many email addresses and which server is hosting those email addresses

most people started being able to use BB when the company started releasing general end-user friendly versions which was heralded by the release of the BBM that most people now talk about.

when the BB10 is released next year, the BB will be at par in terms of fun and entertainment as you currently get on androids and iphones

You guys ought to know that in the present day Nigeria, the BlackBerry is the god of data savings. No other device has Unlimited Data offered by network providers at a VERY CHEAP price. That said, in terms of functionality and productivity and entertainment and stuff, the 'Droids have it. But let's just wait for BB10 sha.

When it comes to push email and the rest...blackberry comes first....av tried iphone,android(currently using samsung galaxy note and bold 9900),blackberry receives mails faster than the computer ...if your emails are very important to you and you don't have a bb,then you're joking!!

Its a total disappointment for any1 to under estimate what a bb can do, in dubia and some part of Kingdom saudi, BB 4nes are banned, cos hackers use it to tap into d security data base of grocery shops and other small shops, apart from pinging, u have sw such as power point in HD, and mind u the blackberry is a business 4ne, as the idea of pinging was 2 connect all like minded users of bb allover d world. Wish I had all d time in d world 2 explain, pls stop saying nokia E5 (which is just like a toy Bside the iphone) as in d U.K 60% of sophisticated phone users uses an apple product

The question is not yet answered. We haven't been told that special thing BB can do that other phones can't.

Some of you say it's made for business men but other smartphones serve better in that capacity. Even Nokia X2 competes with BB in that area.

The only thing about it is cheap data and pinging.

Bottomline BlackBerry is a subject of overestimation. Boring phone :@.

Sorry for my ignorance...What is pinging? I keep hearing this term especially from people in Nigeria. I have never heard this term in US and I have lived in California
for the last years.
