No reason to lock yet but lets please keep this on topic. If this ends up like the other Apple threads on OCN it's obvious what will happen.

A company having one device at a time isn't a bad thing. Plus, to most consumers it doesn't matter.
Not true. The iPod, iPad, iPhone 3Gs, and iPhone4 all have different screens resolutions. Also each of those devices have different hardware give or take a few of them have similar hardware. You basicly develope for, the old style iphone/ipod, the iphone 4, and the ipad, since those are the major types.

My last phone was a Blackberry storm 2, was an amazing phone. I still think it is a great phone, I just think the OS could be much snappier and much lighter.
I think that since google has the SDK out there for anybody to develope on, that blackberry should use android as a base for their phones and just use custom software in place for their email and other blackberry specific stuff.
^^Still trying to figure out why they haven't done that yet.

The blackberry phones being released are very nice phones, they are built very well and have some serious power under the hood to run a well coded OS very smoothly. My storm 2 is a 750mhz qualcomm chip, and has 256mb of ram, which is more then enough to run android very smoothly. The new phones have only gotten better and better.

Ya I do like the Blackberry phones very elegant IMO they are style, but the OS does suck very little options for apps.

@everyone else TY for keeping your respect and not going to personal attacks GJ.
iPhone has a great phone I would not mind playing with a iPhone 4 for awhile. I do think that the higher end android phones though are top notch and out perform iPhones. I mean this is a Overclocking forum and android is overclockable where iPhone is not.

The phone is not bad, but it is overhyped just like other Apple stuff.
However one thing you need to know is that in many countries where people don't often sign expensive contracts, phones are expensive, a lot of other Sony Ericsson or Nokia devices can cost as much as the iPhone without contract.
