The Never-ending Battle: BlackBerry vs iPhone
Posted on May 03, 2012 by Saab Magalona
, I've always been biased towards the Blackberry
because I find the iPhone
to be such a douchey gadget. I don't know why I think it's made for douchebags... I think I relate it to the first generation iPhone and all the rich kids in school walking around pretending to look for signal just so they can show off their latest quote-unquote babe magnet. HELLO kung makapag iPhone ka wala namang internet!! Haha yun ata yung panahon na wala pang Supersurf eh. No, hindi ako bitter, di ko lang talaga type yung touch screen keypad.(For the latest and best deals in Tech & Gadgets, visit EYP Deal Finder)
I admit, I succumbed to my siblings' peer pressure a year ago. Now I am reconsidering my decision. I was tweeting the other day about giving up my iPhone 4 because right now I have that AND a Blackberry 9780 because I can't let go of BBM. I've finally made up my mind. I can let go of Instagram and other apps because I have an iPad anyway and I think all these games are f*cking with my attention span.
My current favorite applications:
Locally made Streetfood Tycoon
(sorry na-screencap ko nang nakapikit si tycoon) (Related article: Streetfood Tycoon)
Instagram (I think my blog is enough narcissism)
Draw Something (I bought a stylus for this game and I'd much rather play it on a bigger screen)
9GAG Reader (I do this to fall asleep sometimes)
Pokemon (my little brother, Arkin, hacked into my iPhone and installed this so I'm sorry it's not an app you can download!)
I can do all of these on my iPad 2 or I can even just give them all up. I'm trading in both phones for a Blackberry 9900
Nothing new but it's what my mom has and she seems really happy with it. I think I have enough gadgets that make me feel like a kid and an iPhone is really not helping with my goal of becoming more organized - I hate touch screens so I barely reply to texts/emails through my phone.(Join EYP Search-O-lympics for a chance to win amazing prizes)
A tiny part of me is a gadget geek (I got it from my dad) but I'm not one to get the latest release of everything. If there's one gadget I CAN live without, it would be my iPhone. Maybe it's too much for me. I love my laptop's 13-inch screen
and to do so many things in a tiny screen is frustrating. I just really want a phone with e-mail and a physical keypad. The Blackberry Messenger is just a plus plus plus. So as I was transferring stuff off my iPhone, I did some research and wow I had no idea Blackberry was releasing it's very late rebuttal to Apple's iPhone and Samsung's Android.
That is soooo fine. Can't wait for it to come out. I hear it will be released later in the year. I still don't like touch screens though so whoever has it first (I'm looking at you, gadget reviewers!!), can I please play with it too? :) Maybe, just maybe, I'll convert back to touch screens since it's Blackberry.
