You buy a bb if you cant afford an iphone!
It costs around R2k for a prepaid bb where it costs >R8k for an iphone.
your just a dirty BB hatin troll!

How about getting a mod to setup a poll, im quite interested in the stats.

1) BB phones
2) Mac phones
3) Andriod phones
4) Other

BB user: "I can download anything I want for Free with my BB!"
iPhone user: "wow, any apps that you want?"
BB user: "what's an APP?"

You don't perchance mean the one on the MyBB front page?

Taking just the phones without data plans and cost, the iPhone wins by a mile, but take the low cost of BB's into account and you certainly have a winner.

I think its because at the end of the day its not really the price of the phone that matters but more as to what you will be able to do with it after purchase. Lets be honest Iphone has a lot of apps it it appstore but as a previous article on MyBB mentions, its a long process to actually get into the american appstore so the average user will not even bother with it. On the other hand Blakberry has really become popular with the exchanging of pins for BBM and the always on internet access for social networking at a flat rate.

I know Android wasn't mentioned in the article but i guess its because its not really known out here, most people i know only recognize a phone by its brand and could care less about what OS it runs

Android you fools.
+1

I've got a Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro, running Android 2.1. Apart from SE not wanting to give us any updates to 2.2 or beyond, its fantastic. Not the best Android phone out there (I have a student budget), but still, Android rocks.

Poll is on the main page: Which smartphone OS do you like the most? So far Android is in the lead.

It's about value for money. Low-cost, flat-rated social networking + surfing has very high value in the SA market, I think. Hence inexpensive Blackberry contracts wins.
