iPhone vs. Blackberry review (after four hours)


OK, my quick thoughts after four hours. The iPhone is the greatest phone ever built–that’s hands down the truth. However, it’s best to look at it as a web device with a phone thrown in. My bullet point review so far:

  1. Surfing the web: iPhone hands down winner. Most amazing phone ever.
  2. Music and video: iPhone hands down winner. Most amazing phone ever.
  3. Maps/weather/stocks: iPhone hands down winner. Most amazing phone ever.
  4. Email: iPhone not as good as Blackberry in terms of input (i.e. keyboard), but far better in terms of output (ie the iPhone screen is a DREAM).
  5. Camera: horrible. Really Apple… what the deal!?!?!
  6. Design/form factor: iPhone is the most amazing phone ever.
  7. Durability: The iPhone is FRACKED if you drop it. My Blackberry can–and has–been dropped 20x with no problem.
  8. Keyboard: Shockingly good. Steve Jobs told me at the D conference that if I trust the keyboard and give it a week it will be as good as a Blackberry. I didn’t believe him at all. Now I’m 75% sure he is right. I need three more days.

Blackberry users what say you??!
