I actually wouldn't say that last line is true. That implies that Linux isn't "stable." I would say "more compatible, lower-maintenance system." Because I think OSX is more compatible with most stuff than Linux.

Oops, this is a thread about iPhones

Edit: Post 6767... Interesting.
I meant stable as in unchanging not stable as in "won't crash." Linux can run without so much as rebooting for years, but how long have you ever kept a linux install before breaking it by playing with stuff ?

Coolness only goes so far. The iPhone looks cool and has a cool interface, but it's functionality is far from cool. Having used an iPhone and my Blackberry 8300 Curve (now with Beta OS 4.5), I can strongly state the fact that the market is divided into 3 sections: those who don't care about what phone they use, those who want the "whoa" factor (a short-lived aspect, I assure you), and those who want their device to do exactly what they want, in a fast and reliable manner. I use email all the time, as we all do. I wanted a device to send my email to my phone, instantly, without having to log in to anything. Just have it pushed straight to me. The cool thing with the blackberries is the emails are as fast as texts, and arrive in the same manner. Emails are also sent on-the-fly without having to log in to ANYTHING. I just have the phone set up with my 2 GMail accounts, and everything is done from there. Forwarded, replied, sent, and pushed straight to my phone. This fully-integrated email system also allows me to attach pics and word documents.

Another obvious feature is the full QWERTY keyboard. Touchscreen is not reliable enough to use constantly. I am the type of person that demands instant feedback from my devices, and having physical keys does exactly that. No delays, no mistakes, no confusion. The "click-able" trackball allows me to also fly through menus, lists, and emails. One-handed operation with everything. Driving while checking email is retarded, but while at a stop waiting for the light to change, I only have a few seconds to go through some emails. One hand, 2 or 3 seconds, I'm done. Try that with an iPhone.

LOL... thanks for the description of how a blackberry works...

Not everyone does business on the road and needs to constantly send emails. I work out of my office. I type emails on my PC. I use my iPhone for everything else.

It's the most advanced user friendly device out there.. it's the king of phones these days..

Blackberry is even incorporating features into the blackberry to make it more appealing, how the iphone is...

Yes.. the blackberry may be a better corporate tool.. but all around the iphone is funner and does stuff just as well as a blackberry (bb 9000 anyone ?)

The touch screens on the iphones/itouches is awesome.. its so nice and cleans up well.

The screens on the iphone are absolutely fantastic...too bad the qwerty touch keyboard sucks and is designed for people with fingers 1/3 the normal width. Whenever i i played with an iphone i'd hit 2 letters for everyone one i tried to hit, and i don't even have big hands. I personally just prefer the response of a good old button based system. Hence why i chose the enV over the voyager, no likey touchy screeny for texting/typing.

I wish there was a cross off all 3 OS's, Linux's expandability, Window's functionality, and OS X's looks.

psik0.k1m:Actually, it wouldn't be the "king of phones" that's in the eye of the beholder, You may love your iPhone, but when I tried one at the store here, I hated it, I think my V3 (Apart from the lack of storage for songs, which I have my iPod classic for) is a "king of phones" but you may think its the same as the contents of your toilet bowl after a fat man, who just ate curry was there.

Three segments you described are 1) normal middleclass America, 2) trendy people, and 3) corporate. Blackberry is mainly a corporate tool for a reason. They are functional and formal. While with trendy people that like to stay on the cutting edge of cell phone technology, they are relatively price inelastic, they will pay whatever it is necessary to have the newest hip and cool thing. It is not at all a short-lived aspect, trendy people stay trendy, they just move on to the next best thing. Which is why companies such as Apple tries to stay in fashion. And the segment with trendy people is always the cash cow of the company, offering the best profit margin.
