    Andriod the best Mobile OS of there and it will continue to improve. I have friends who all have blackberry's , after research and what not, you'll find the hardware is bloody shiiiiit and so is the software... The main feature of a blackberry is BBM which the main the reason people are getting them. Personally I have HTC desire HD which bloody great.

    I used to have a Nokia, but my dad got a new Blackberry and gave me his old one to try out. It's convenient, actually, sheep or no sheep. Also, I hate Apple, so **** iPhones.

    Its so annoying, virtually everyone in my school has a blackberry, whats the point? Wheres the diversity if everyone has the same bloody brand of phone and Its not even that good.

    Why are so many people starting to get Blackberrys?, Is it because its good? or Is it just a social trend thing?

    I would like to hear people's opinions on this.

    I went from an iPhone 3G to a Blackberry Curve. HATED it, it was clunky and not very user friendly in my opinion. Am now having a passionate love affair with an iPhone 4.

    I think there is a bit of everything here. There is peer imitation, there is "fashion," but this does not mean that everybody must follow the crowd.

    Technically some models of Blackberry are actually good, some others are not. In pure technological terms, instead of a Blackberry, I would go for an Android-based phone, like Samsung Galaxy S or a Win7 based phone, because they are likely to have more longevity.

    This might just be a coincidence BUT

    are they reliable? because time and time again I see a status on Facebook from someone complaining that their BB has broke and such.

    It's just another fashion thing though, like those stupid ugg boots and such, and because they're not genuinely interested in the phone for anything else rather than phoning, texting and music they don't really understand what other phones have to offer to see that an iphone is better or even their own phone, so it's basically a "get what everyone else gets and what looks the nicest" kinda thing

    My cousin started with an android, then a BB, THEN an Iphone, she said the IPhone is the best, and I'm gonna agree with her because I've had mine for a year and a half and never looked back.

    I don't think you can compare Andriod to BB or Iphone , well maybe you compare to BB... Firstly Andriod is not a mobile phone it's an OS , secondly there are hundreds of handset running android each with every different spec. I personally think HTC Desire HD is much better phone than Iphone 4.

    I don't like android, but your point on the hardware and software being **** is true.
    my cousin has one and the trackpad thing is terrible, hardly works and isn't remotely responsive same for a few of my friends.

    Using a blackberry feels so outdated. The software and OS is closer to a 3310 than Android or any of the other compatitors. Feels like a time machine... Ew.

    Personally, I have a low-end Blackberry because I'm on a SIM-only contract, so it was going to cost me virtually the same amount no matter what handset I bought, therefore I got an unlocked refurbished returned Blackberry (essentially exactly the same as a new one, just a fraction of the price).

    Yes, I could have bought an iPhone, but I don't like using touchscreens because I'm a careless typist :P
