re: BlackBerry: The Fax Machine Of Its Era
I confess I am still a Blackberry user. I like the hardware keyboard and its ease for writing emails. I think RIM should have tried to focus on a security oriented federal market rather than try to compete wit iPhones and Androids for the consumer market. I hope they will stay around in their future incarnation

game-set-match. Another example of a failed management of a once great company. It joins the ranks of Xerox, Polaroid and Kodak.

Owning a BlackBerry was an iconic status symbol of its day; and their keyboards were still far superior to touch screen versions. But when it came to web apps for the smartphone, BlackBerry was totally outgunned by iPhone's and Androids universe of developers.
