Personal experience may vary, but most of the BlackBerry users I know all cite BlackBerry Messenger as a defense whenever someone says anything negative about BlackBerry. They really seem to love it, but the only people who have been able to use BBM are BlackBerry owners. That's about to change. This summer BlackBerry will launch versions of BBM for iOS and Android. You finally be able to message for free with your one friend who still owns a BlackBerry.
Thorsten Heins, CEO of Blackberry, which was a popular business accessory back in the early 2000's, said in an interview he feels the Apple iPhone was outdated. This doesn't even count as a "pot calling the kettle black" situation. This is a whatever historically pre-dated the pot calling the kettle black, and it's awfully big talk coming from a company whose stock is trading at about three percent of Apple's.
