BlackBerry is not dead, but it is badly maimed. But you should know, it's the people who want their phone to replace their Windows PC who caused it (along with some bad management, no doubt). BlackBerry is a good phone. And it's the best portable email device, bar none. The factors pushing BlackBerry out are very similar to the factors pushing calculators out. It's people's changing expectations and desire to consolidate and the simple fact that the latest smartphone is a status symbol and glamor item, because most of those hi-spec phones are not good phones at all. It seems dedicated devices have always been better than one do-it-all device that really doesn't. This is the strength of HP calculators, and calculators in general: provide a platform that does one thing well.

Above you just said BlackBerry died because it had keys but now you seem to be saying some people must have keys for efficiency. Therefore, the demise of BlackBerry is because of efficiency? Perhaps I agree with your conclusion, but not for the same reasons as you Wink

It ain't OVER 'till it's 2 PICK
