    Blackberry versus Iphone

    i didn't use the iphone myself yet, officially it's even not available in my country, however i'm wondering if some of you guys have worked with both the blackberry and the iphone already and would be able to post their own experience in here.
    i think for business the iphone if far behind the blackberry but i don't know what the greatest device for private use would be

    For private use...depends what you want.

    The push email on Blackberry is useful, but to be honest their phones don't really do much that any half decent pda/phone doesn't do nowadays (at a fraction of the price/contract, in the UK anyway). The iPhone is a beautiful toy (and I LOVE the shakey etchasketch thingy), but if you want a phone/music player, you can get any number of phones that take SD cards and will happily play more music than you can shake a stick at. If you want a camera, there are much better phones. Games player, same. In fact every feature it has (except the cool touch screen shakiness factor) is available in most modern phones.

    I think they are similar in one respect, they are both "niche" gadgets (one for business, one for chic cool....PC/Mac anyone?). And neither delivers anywhere near their asking price (currently) imho.

    iPhone is for America while Blackberry is for the rest of the world outside the US.

    iphone is just revolutionary just like apple is. iphone is short on functions vs. other phones like the voyager and crackberrys.

    iphone people go to starbucks for coffee, blackberry users go to mcdonalds.
