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.Edited by thrasherht - 5/29/11 at 9:55pm
