without BBM, the BB is just a fruit. I think naija overhyped that device, but hey, thats just me. Not saying it isnt useful, but in naija its more of a status thing.

The bbm is d essence of a bb, BB phone alone doesnt have much features as compared to other regular phones

Bbm is just another features of bb. U can really do a lot with your bb, u can download easily cos it compress files large files, u have a lot of apps for games, business etc. I hardly use my bbm since I like talking to pple face to face but it has its benefits though

NAAH! You can't compare the games on a BB with those (HI-TECH games) on a Nokia N8 for instance. . . tongue tongue

i actually think its funny that people buy phones worth up to 85k because it has some chat app. though i have to say, BBM is a pretty cool mobile chat feature, but that, and email is just about all blackberry smartphones have. the iphone and android phones on the other hand, are way cooler,

I know a lot of us like 2 hate a dominant thing ; its human phenomenon hence d noise abt BB all d tym. Though I don't like using somtin everybody has; I must admit,BB has bcom a necessity in 9ja especially if u r biznes oriented and makes use of ur mail often. I also don't ve upto 10 contacts on my BBM. while there might b a lot of fons better Dan BB in 9ja , BB could b the best option4 data. Since its supported by d fon networks here unlike d I phones and d rest.

A useless piece of crap whose only advantage over a NOKIA 3310 would be larger coloured screen and a Qwerty keyborad. Cos even when the RIM server was down, you couldnt even browse with your phone.
Re: What Is A Blackberry Without BBM? by tunnytox(m): 3:03pm On Oct 13, 2011
Blackberry is overhyped useless expensive piece of trash, an android phone of £50 will do anything blackberry does except BBM but must you communicate or chat with BBM only? There are several chatting apps you can download for free so to me blackberry with or without BBM is expensive piece of trash.

Re: What Is A Blackberry Without BBM? by ehie007(m): 3:22pm On Oct 13, 2011
bb without a bbm makes it a little better dan a 3310.

but bb is quite useful if ur into bizness and d likes, its makes for easy networking and product promotion,

This hatred for blackberry is unprecedented lol!
Re: What Is A Blackberry Without BBM? by MissEZ(f): 4:50pm On Oct 13, 2011
The BB was originally targeted at Business people and i think that they are the ones who will find a use for BB whether BBM works or not.

It really beats my imagination how BB became a mainstream device meant for chatting in naija. People spend so much money on the thing just to chat? WOW!!! naija i hail thee o.

I never buy a technological gadget except i have use for the features. I think that letting material things determine our social status is one of naija's biggest problems and also speaks to the values we have as people.

Re: What Is A Blackberry Without BBM? by chylind5: 5:07pm On Oct 13, 2011
Well, am a Nokia Staff and i can proudly tell u that BB is just all abt the name and doesnt have much to offer.

Making ppl do compulsory plans ie 3000k per month. Low battery quality, not user friendly, etc.

Check out the Nokia maps with voice and drive navigation, Nokia messaging Service ir the Push Email, Whats app messenger. Nokia accommodates the poor, the rich, and the average and BB only thinks of the high class in d society.

Check out the New Nokia E6. High resolution Touch screen, 8Mp camera (Best in Class), 8G internal memory, 5 Home screens, Qwerty Keypad,Microsoft Solutions for business email and chat, Fully integrated microsoft office tools (Word, Excel, Power Point). etcl. Can BB beat that phone

Well. . . . . . . . I make use of the email, BBM, the word processor, the spreadsheet app, the slideshow, the maps, music player, stream live internet radio via wi-fi - don't really think it is a waste of money or overhyped; every phone has its own!
