I miss the keyboard the most.

I have a droid with a slide out one, but it's sideways and fairly annoying compared to my old BB.

The new Blackberry could bury the new iphone and Samsungs in every measurable way and it may still fail. Too little too late.

I have owned 2 Android phones. I just don't like google jamming my phone lists with all of my email contacts and all the other dreck from my google account. Instant 800+ phonebook of all email addreses! YAY!

I like my old Blackberry. It sends emails, texts and I can check my bank account and make phone calls with one hand. I really don't need to be attached to the internet all the time. Or play angry birds on my phone.

I have no need for an app that farts with you put your phone in your pocket. Let the kids have their Android phones. I do like my 'Droid tablet tho.

My lawn.. get off of it!

We had to use Blackberry because it was the only platform that met the security policies the business said we had to implement on mobile devices. Once the flipping iPhone caught up to Windows Mobile 6.0 Pro active sync security features, most of IT switched as well.
