    Nope.  But I would have no problem doing that.

    Nothing, given that BB has released an App based version for iOS and Android,

     

    Windows mobile? Don't know, don't care.

    You should write romance books, the truth is much more down to earth:

    Blackberrys certainly don't deserve the credit of being the smartphone before smartphones when they were preceded to market by equivalents from Nokia (Communicator range), Ericsson/Sony Ericsson (R380, p800) and Handspring/Palm (Treo).

    I'd go as far as to say the only innovation the Blackberrys brought to market were the BES secure messaging features, otherwise the Treo and Nokia Communicators were already more capable devices than the Blackberrys.

    Here's odd news: Now that Nokia has shed it's Lumia line in a sell-off to Microsoft they're still going to build smartphones... and their own Android-based flavor??

    Do you think they have a chance in a Samsung-dominated Android market? They might be able to get a foothold in parts of Europe that don't have iPhone subsidies -and- are still loyal to Nokia but I'm not sure even so sure of that, nor do I think that will be enough to keep them in the black. I wish them luck but it seems pretty bleak with Samsung's current Android dominance.
