Bye-bye BlackBerry, Hello iPhone!

At the beginning of the month I was able to replace my existing phone under my plan, and instead of going for another BlackBerry, I’ve opted for an iPhone.

My old BlackBerry 8320 has been good, and has been around the world with me, but it’s time to move on.

BlackBerries have always done email well, but that’s about it. The Web experience on my BlackBerry has always been dismal/disappointing/frustrating, the games were usually uninstalled shortly after being installed, and they have a stupidly-low amount of on-board memory. When I saw that the new BlackBerries still had ridiculously low amounts of memory (512 MB vs. 16 GB on the equivalent “base” iPhone on the plan) that helped clinch it.

But it’s not so much the hardware as the software you can run on it. My wife loves her iPhone, and we have an iPad at home so am already very familiar with the apps that can be used on it.

So bye-bye BlackBerry! I think the only thing I will miss is the tactile mini-keyboard.

Here are a couple of pics of my battered BlackBerry:
