iPhone v BlackBerry – Which one gets your vote?
Hey, check out my new app! How the top-dog smartphones are battling for first place, let’s have a look at their credentials, size them up and push them to their limits….. !
The BlackBerry was launched by Research in Motion and is undeniably a strong competitor to the iPhone. The BlackBerry does not boast touch screen technology, which might be music to some peoples’ ears, but it does have a full QWERTY keyboard. This means emails and other forms of business communication can be sent quickly and accurately, making the BlackBerry a fighting force within the corporate market. It’s not just your business men and women that could benefit from a BlackBerry though as it forces its way into a more dynamic market.
BlackBerry for Me?

If you need call quality, business communication, some apps and music then the BlackBerry is a must have.
Smartphones are the new way to improve your communication needs and business presence, but which one to choose? The two leaders on the market are the iPhone v BlackBerry.
The launch of the Apple iPhone created much hysteria and saw all you gadget lovers running to the shops. The slinky touch screen design made it jump to the top spot for the must have 21st Century phone, seeing similar designs swamp the market in an attempt to compete. It is not often these days that I go to a house party that doesn’t have people gathered around an iPhone, enthralled by a new app or something interesting on the internet.
There only seems to be one phone competitor still holding its own and that is the BlackBerry.
So why choose the Apple iPhone?
Combined with an Apple iPod, the iPhone is a plus for all music buffs out there, music downloadable from Apple iTunes instantly.
easy to use, even the touch screen novices among us can get to grips with the iPhone in a matter of minutes.
Access to the internet and emails is available through Apple internet function Safari, viewing pages in landscape or portrait settings as well as enlarging them on the screen.
Boasts a 3 megapixal camera, video functionality and hundreds of applications free of charge. The iPhone is a definite must have for all Facebook junkies out there.
Now for the cons:
The battery life could be better possibly because of the support needed for the numerous apps/internet functionality.
The camera does not have a flash limiting its usage to bright conditions.
Safari does not support Flash software meaning that internet usage can sometimes be thwarted.
iPhones are expensive to purchase, until recently they were only available through O2 which saw low competition and high prices. The recent move to other networks has seen prices fall but not dramatically.
The iPhone does not incorporate full Bluetooth technology.
