I think it looks very classy, even nokia and samsung did release their own versions of the qwerty keypad... but i think its not the first qwerty phone. anyway... what's so good about the features of the blackberry that most prefers it than other phones in the market? it really makes me feel so curious. hehe i am not considering the phone though, i like my samsung touch screen... ;) thanks everyone!

I find my blackberry bold easy to use and very professional. I got one because it is easier to email from and as I am entering the world of work soon. Everyone seems to communicate via email which at first was pretty alien to me, but be using my blackberry I have become more used to it I also post on twitter and update my blog from my phone so it is a very versatile phone. And the blackberry torch has a touch screen so it might be worth you getting one.

BlackBerry used to be very popular because all of its features and the fact that it was a businessman phone. However, as of late BlackBerry has started to lag in the smartphone race and is definitely behind Droid and the iPhone. New phones are supposed to come out soon, but I think it is too little too late.

Well... Actually, first blackberry was created as a 2 way pager by company called RIM, Research In Motion... It progressively went from being a "pager" to include voice calls... Blackberry, among other smart phones, has capabilities to do other things through apps... I know it's more of social app but I used to use an app called, "foursquare"... It made it easier to let my coworkers & my work place know where I was when they need me...

What's so special about the blackberry phone is that, like iphone, they have their own OS. It's powered by RIM, the company behind blackberry. Another special thing about it is they're the first to have a messenger application exclusively for blackberry users only which gives us that feeling of being better than anybody else. It's called BBM and in fact iphone is gonna have one in their iOS5 and they're gonna call it imessenger! I love blackberry because aside from using it for social networking, i also use it for work. I can edit my student's homework sent through my email right there and then and send it back right away without the need for a computer. It has excel, word, etc and so easy to navigate. These are the special things about blackberry that i love!

Black Bery was first designed with the business owner in mind. It was one of the first to provide one-touch access to a multiude of usefull applications that can prove to be useful in a number of ways aside from voice calls and text messaging. It offered word and other office products, e-mail, web browsing and long battery life. It was also the first phone to provide multi-tasking as well. Over the years the key features built into the black bery have grown. It provides the must-have features a majority of smart phone users want, and at such lower costs compared to its competors who offer simular features but at higher prices. Now with the high demand in the competing market, it has its own OS like Android, and windows with its own market for downloading usefull apps and tools. It's easy-to-use design is unique and unlike with phones over the years has not really changed all that much with the exception of a couple versions offering touch screen capability for those who want the features without the keypad in the way. And, the flip offered from T-mobile which shrinks the phone width-wise to make it the first and only black bery flip phone. It is for this reason black berry remains popular.

Hi Chiyosan! I think it is because of its name~(^^) Really!! When I recall back how I did know about the brand its really because of its name that caught my eyes first before I ever want to know about the phone itself.Hehe....It is such a trend and people follow it. First IPhone then touch screen phone, then smartphone and so on whatever phone.I still think the name itself. Just like IPad and IPhone and now Blackberry!! We even have Burberry for luxury fashion house!! There are people who we called as gadget mania and use it in a maximum use but there are some did not use old the features have in that phones and sometimes they don't even know it! They just buy it because of its name and the trend~ I don't have one and not planing to have it though at this time~(^^)
