Not really.

Most people saw the handwriting on the wall for Symbian.

Windows Mobile = PocketPC - Microsoft hobby.


Maybe in the US but outside of the US Symbian was king and really for Android to overtake it was surprising for many.

Those very same reviews indicate the gaps will be closed this summer.

An interesting piece for sure.

Not sure any writing is on the way...as something unfinished has as much chance to be altered (for competitive purposes) as anything else. The Blackpad could easily change its firmware to compete with other tablets if that's their intent.

RIM's historical business application leadership might cause them to look to an alternative strategic plan for business-only application. They've owned that space to date.

Comparing an iPad to a Blackpad is like comparing any other consumer vs business differentiators - different needs, different applications. iPads are forbidden in our Fortune 500 company, whereas Blackberry is the corporate communications standard. iPads are viewed as a consumer-only product in many businesses, including virtually all of our own 1100 clients.

They have different markets and serve different purposes. They also feature different security and other criteria for deployment. In contrast, Andoid devices might have a play in the business world.

It's another wait and see more than anything else.

Almost every single day, I go from "keep Blackberry" to "ditch Blackberry" and back again ... on and on ... really do ... everyday ... :)

Right now I'm probably in the "keep" category, but that may change in an hour. :)

The reason for the constant state of flux, is that I keep discovering new information ...

My blackberry is absolutely perfect, perfect, for e-mail, calendar, address book, and BBM/texting ... it's the other stuff that's that problem.

And I keep finding out little nit things that aren't as good on the iPhone, as an example the Blackberry can see how many new and unread e-mails there are before you unlock it, the iPhone can't, and there are others.

Back and forth, and back and forth I go ...

The one constant is that the iPad is perfect for my needs, so that ain't changing. :)

And in a way, the iPad may be the answer why I keep my Blackberry, or maybe not ... decisions, decisions ... especially when the Bold Touch and Touch ship ... :)
