CrackBerry reminder: What you may have missed this week

7 Comments

Let me just start by saying this has been a great week for prizes for me. I really really hope I win something and congratulations to the future winners :D

its all about android phones every other phone. i use to to have a lame bb but i am now a droid owner and happy about it. i'll put my droid up against your bb any time and watch me utterly destroy you lol.
i know this is wackberry.com but i don't give a, my only reason for coming here is to laugh at you dumb ass bb users and talk about how much better android phones are lol. i will continue to come here and preach the word of android simply because i can and because i know you all hate that lol.
but the truth is the truth, get a android and you'll forget all about a bb. the list of things androids can do that a bb can't is just shamefull, it use to be cool to have a bb now its just sad lol. i know some people have to have a bb, their job requires it but if you're not one of those persons and you have a bb then you're a clown.
the droid alone is better than every single bb out and lets not even talk about the nexus 1, droid incredible or the new evo 4g and the list is growing. just wait until you see the line up of phones that android are getting ready to release, its going to blow your mind.
R.I.P RIM and iphone, its a new king in town lol. p.s. im aware of my typos and poor grammar but this is a commet on a internet website and not a college essay, im not being graded on this so spare me the various "you have poor grammar comments" android is the best, what else can i say? haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Wow, you know so little about mobile devices I hardly want to respond. First I have devices at least 5 years older than googles first phone and I promise it can do more than any device on the market as of right now. Second, to the dumb top 10 list, wow, it means nothing if the IJunk is on it. Besides most people, like 99.5 percent use about 25 percent of what theie device is capable of, so what would they know about any top 10 list. So before you start to post something dumb, you might want to learn what your talking about. Lastly, the BlackBerry is the very best at communications, noone else is close, and I've tried all of them alot

go here to check out the top 10 smartphones of 2010 and this list is up to date blackberry does make an appearance at number 7 but the top 4 are androids with the iphone sitting in the 5th spot and 6 of the overall 10 are androids

http://www.pcworld.com/reviews/collection/1671/top_10_cell_phones.html

1. HTC Droid Incredible (ANDROID)
The HTC Incredible is one of the most impressive Android phones available with a gorgeous display, slick user interface, and lightning-fast processor.

2. HTC EVO 4G (ANDROID)
The speedy HTC EVO 4G packs in some powerful specs and a variety of multimedia features into a stylish, minimalist design, but not everybody will get to enjoy one of its best features--4G connectivity.

3. Google Nexus One (ANDROID)
The Google Nexus One impresses with a stunning AMOLED display, speedy performance, and cool tweaks to the Android OS; but some network issues prevent it from being a superphone.

4. Motorola Droid (ANDROID)
The first Android 2.0 phone impresses with a strong suite of Web features and a stunning 3.7-inch display, but some users might have trouble with the shallow keyboard.

5. Apple 32GB iPhone 3GS
Performance enhancements distinguish the otherwise evolutionary step-up iPhone 3GS from its previous iterations.

6. Motorola Cliq (ANDROID)
The beautifully designed Motorola Cliq is a social butterfly's dream phone, but others may find the MotoBlur user interface overwhelming.

7. BlackBerry Bold 9700
The best BlackBerry available, the Bold 9700 packs a multitude of features into a sophisticated, slimmed-down design.

8. Palm Pre Plus
With expanded memory and new software capabilities, the Pre Plus is definitely an improvement over its predecessor, but it still has some quirks.

9. Palm Pre
The Pre's webOS software is touch-friendly and fun, but the cramped QWERTY keyboard detracts from the phone's usability.

10. Samsung Behold II (ANDROID)
With a gorgeous AMOLED display and an excellent camera, the pricey Samsung Behold II will appeal to multimedia junkies with deep pockets.

its fun to come are and tell the truth about android being better then bb. you won't see a bb user/owner in the android forums talking about "how much greater black berrys are then droids" because that's not true and everybody knows it and if someone actually did that they would look extremely stupid. i'm not talking out of my ass here, i'm a ex-blackberry owner i use to have a storm so i know the differences between the 2 and the differences GREATLY favor android. i promise, if you switch from a bb to an android you WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED, its a whole new and better experience.

i know this is wackberry.com but i don't give a fuck, my only reason for coming here is to laugh at you dumb ass bb users and talk shit about how much better android phones are lol. i will continue to come here and preach the word of android simply because i can and because i know you all hate that lol.

R.I.P RIM and iphone, its a new king in town lol. p.s. im aware of my typos and poor grammar but this is a commet on a internet website and not a college essay, im not being graded on this so spare me the various "you have poor grammar comments" android is the best, what else can i say? haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

It's really pathetic that you would waste your time coming on to a BB devoted website and post a comment about how much better you think Android phones are. I'd like to see a Droid have the messaging capability that a BlackBerry has. I'd like to see it be nearly as reliable. Really, you're wasting your time and energy going on a BlackBerry centric website and posting your opinion; it wouldn't be as big of a deal if you weren't being so obnoxious about it. I don't see the point, and frankly, I don't think anyone else does either. Good day sir.

One more thing, the Blackberry takes top honors in security as well, but what would you know about that. From what I've seen very few even take advantage of thst feature. What I would conclude, and have concluded, is there is no one great device that can do it all great as of yet, for my taste their always at least missing something that I want.
