Since I don’t have an iPhone, I can’t download the app. But a great idea to buy it as a gift for someone.

Now, if you wanted to buy me an iPhone as a gift . . .

It’ll help me. 🙂
The iPhone app will work on my iPod Touch, but only when I’m within a wireless network.
I’ve now got a Droid (finally did away with my blackberry). So, I’m ready for the Droid app! 🙂

Jeff,
Love my Droid! However, I’d say iPhones still have their bugs worked out to a much higher degree. It’s not enough to make me leave Verizon though.
The biggest problem with my Droid (Droid X) is battery life. The huge screen uses battery quickly. One has to accept the fact that they will have to plug their phone in, when not in use, relatively often. Otherwise, frustration will triumph.
It’ll last most of the day, if you only make calls.
I wouldn’t recommend it for business people though (ones who want to get to messages easily or quickly make calls). It requires a few steps to choose a contact or search for a message.
I love it for it’s gps, social media, tech tool and multimedia capabilities though! It’s served superbly as the family camcorder.

Craig, good summary of Droid.
Apple has there work cut out for them.
When you’re number one, everyone is chasing after you, and the wrong proprietary leak may spell disaster.
Anyway, it sounds light-years better than a BB.

Better than my old BB Curve? ABSOLUTELY!
But truthfully, I’m in a different niche than what the BB is geared towards.
If BB wants to gain smartphone market-share, then yes, they need to have some drastic strategic planning shake-ups. (I will say that I’ve never played with a BB Torch to see how it compares.)
Not encouraging it to be content, but BB does should do just fine with those in its targeted niche (less multimedia hungry businesspeople).
What would really be good for it, is if it didn’t fall into the smartphone category, because it’s something a little different. However, when the flashy smartphones infringe on its territory, it’s, of course, cause for worry.
So, unfortunately, BB has no choice but to defend it’s niche by trying to expand into others.
Eh, food for thought…

BB has a mass utilitarian purpose – cheap communication tool that is better than it’s predecessor, the pager.
And because surfing the net is so cumbersome, it’s a natural deterrent to inappropriate use.
And at the same time, it inhibits greater functionality and increased productivity.
