    And who wants a web browser in an mp3 player? Seriously. The people that need a browser that bad just go ahead and get the iphone or storm or other alternate that also plays music.
    It's stupid. And yes, the sales figures show it. They show just how dumb the average american consumer is. It's hilarious to anyone with half a brain.

    Gameboys, DS, PSP = not some silly little downloadable games that the iphone has. They actually have good games, not cheesy 2 dollar download types that no one wants to play after the first time.

    Odd, because it seems once most people go BB, they don't go back. I'm not even a huge phone nerd, but I won't go back. BUT I actually utilize it. I'd say those that ditch it for something else probably don't want to pay the data package costs and only wanted to look cool in the first place.

    As for the commercial - BB's marketing sucks. They should've had a catchy indie song playing and bright pretty colors. Then just a simple picture of the phone...maybe with trendy art pouring out of it and with a cute background.
    It works for apple.
    Instead, their approach was way too bland and adult. And I truly mean this, but then again BB probably doesn't care about being the new trend. They know they can make a servicable product with no gimmicks and the product will sell due to reputation. Not pretty colors. OH! And "ease" of use...for the retards that apparently can't figure out anything without the apple logo on it. (the only difference)

    That's a stupid question. It looks like a lot of people want a web browser in their mp3 player, but then that's obvious. It's like asking why anyone would want a phone that could surf the web or read email...

    As for games, I don't think high end gamers are the ones likely to buy the iPod touch at this point (at least as their only gaming device). But casual gamers will buy it as their media device because it can play games. And people will buy it instead of a cheaper iPod because it has games (and web browser and other apps).

    Nope, the 5 people I know that ditched were ALL because of usability. No, they weren't just some kids, e.g. one is a network admin for a major school district in Philly.

    Really? So this new Storm that has "no gimmicks" it's probably going to out sell the iPhone hands down? haha People actually camped out at stores for the iPhone. Including People that haven't even used a mac a day in there life. Not to mention the phone hadn't been seen by the public. Now that's a good reputation.

    Did a Mac fall of a desk and hit you in the face when you were a kid or something? I love the anti mac you be slinging! I use to be just like that. I was forced to move to mac for my job (web designer) and now I love them. I use both Mac and PC all day and at the end of day they both get the job done and both have there flaws. So who really cares?

    Keep living in your elitist, narcissistic, anti-mac dream-world.

    pg, I never said it'd outsell the iphone. Why would it? Plenty of developers make MUCH better products than apple for half the price, and apple still outsells them.
    They're Gods when it comes to marketability.

    Apple is like the Britney Spears of the tech world. Oh it sells... so it must be great!

    I assumed by your "Plus... I figure it'll kick the total sh88 out of the iphone, so..." that's what you meant cause I'm damn sure won't on the usability/interface side.
