    Alot of people I know have moved from iPhone to blackberry, what's so good about blackberry and why move from iPhone to that?

    Also some people said iPhone is a kids phone and blackberry is a mans phone, who agrees with that?

    Well, it depends on what people prefer. I have an iPod Touch 3G and a Blackberry 9700. The reason why I have a Blackberry is because I'm used to them, and I prefer phones with a physical keyboard.

    mainly the people move because of the physical keyboard and the better calendar/contacts/business applications and functions on RIM Blackberrys

    kids = good phone to play and have a nice UI or to use it as a media palyer
    men = business phone

    that would be my interpretation

    //EDIT: btw I have an iPhone but I use an Nokia 7500 Prism as my main phone - iPhone is only for surfing the WWW
    I do it this way because I prefer physical keyboards and a small phone too while the iPhone is great for surfing/chatting/whatsoever

    I have a Tour 9630, & I love it. It's great for messaging, emails, full keyboard etc, & that lovely battery life. Apps not so much that's where the iphone takes it hands down. Basically iPhone is more of a fun phone, the Blackberry is more business like. I too have a 2G Ipod Touch, for the Apps/Music

    They're not horrible, but the iPhone does have a better browser and media player.

    I don't agree with it but a lot of adults think the same thing: that the iphone is more of a juvenile gadget, my aunt prefers the blackberry because she says its better suited for her uses and work, she needs the physical keyboard also, besides its on Verizon.
