Apple to RIM: You Been Served!
Apple strolled up to RIM, slipped out a glove, dropped a brick into
it, and slapped out one "boom" of a challenge.
Blackberry is an email monster, no doubt about it. Intoxicating "push"
delivery and back-end IT administration have made it the darling of
the enterprise world. But it isn't without problems: due to the
centralized server-model RIM utilizes (where all mail is collected by
RIM prior to being pushed out to end-users), there's a single point of
failure for all Blackberry users everywhere (as seen in two recent,
service-wide outages) -- and a single point of exploit as well (where
an attack on RIM's server could compromise the privacy and security of
the entire user base).

"This doesn't make the iPhone a BlackBerry killer, but the iPhone can
do more BlackBerry-ish things than the BlackBerry can do iPhone-ish

Blackberry doesn't do games....
Blackberry is a lousy toy.....
Blackberry isn't a video player....
Blackberry isn't an iTunes player...
Blackberry isn't a streaming TV....
Blackberry isn't "neat".......
....and it's easy locked up by the IT department.
Blackberry does what business wants WITHOUT it being something the
employees will be more interested in playing with...THAN WORKING....
For this very reason, just like the Palm Pilot itself, business will stick
iPhones would set back productivity by an easily measured amount.....
Drop by a big company cubicle farm.....
Notice how the PCs have NO SPEAKERS, NO SOUND CARDS, very limited internet
access and the employees can only load stuff into it if the IT department
sends down a technician. This is why....productivity.
This doesn't mean top executives won't get iPhones as tinker toys. This
means the working classes and their supervisors won't.
