I admire both but cannot argue facts:
I use my phone as a "workhorse" and I don't see me moving off iOS anytime soon.

Well I own a BB Bold 9900 and an iPhone 4S too. I would say I can't favor one of the other sometimes I just prefer my BlackBerry for personal use but iPhone could be a family use device. I am not being negative or anything guys I just love simple phones to carry around and I really like physical keyboard so this could be why I still can't leave my 9900. But I also love how fast my iPhone 4S is with no lag. only thing annoying me that FaceBreak on Cydia doesn't support iOS 5.1.1 yet :/

I have My Blackberry too with my Iphone 4, and Last week I was switched My 9780 to My dad"s torch (blackberry) i wonder How The Touch Screen Feel like, And I VOTE my Iphone 4 For the best.. Apple Still Having the best Touch screen ever, It is Still Accurate even Im typing Fast, but With Torch I need To delete and remove several Time because If I typed Fast on The screen Sometime The screen being laggy, and get The wrong Alphabet.. :o apple still the best

As an owner of both these devices I can appreciate the arguments on both sides... I still use my Berry to do all my heavy emailing. I've said it before and I will say it again, the way iOS handles email is archaic. Not being able to attach a file from the app itself is ridiculous but other than that the iPhone has the measure of the 9900 (apart from customisation).

Dude, your post is like walking into a biker bar and declaring that Harley's suck I prefer a Ferrari. You said what you didn't like you didn't ask a question.
Not a fan of the iPhone look for supporters of your thoughts over at Crackberry. Here we talk about the good things about the iPhone or help those who need help with the same.

I truly believe there are Smartphone enthusiasts, and then there are BLACKBERRY enthusiasts. The more I read you guys posts, the more you remind me of the elderly: stubborn and set in your ways. Really, you can't find another alarm clock? Really, you just summarized all iPhone users as unproductive and lazy? Really, your generalization is that for everyone, portrait keyboards are better than touch screen? Just....really?

BB vs IP4s
As a corporate manager who spends 75% of his life on the road, I've been on both platforms and there are great things about both devices. In my opinion, the BB has a far superior calendar application. I'm talking Rolls Royce vs Yugo type of comparison. Additionally, I'm also a physical keyboard guy...After two years I still can't type worth a rip on glass like I could on my BB.
The deciding factor for me was that BB and Mac are simply non-sympatico. I only have Mac computers in my home and it was a constant fight to get the two to talk to one another. Calendar events doubled up, were deleted or were half complete etc. I couldn't deal with fighting with it any more.
As far as the "toy" vs "workhorse" bit...it's tired. You can play games on both. Yes, the IP has more, but RIM is selling itself to the devil trying to get people to see how "fun" the BB platform is. Why? Because that's what tends to drive people to a platform. I listen to music as I travel and my iP4s gives me more options there than my BB did. I'm actually excited to see what BB 10 will be...hope it turns out to be great.
You mentioned travel, in order to keep my life orderly, I have to stay on top of everyone's events. I can put something on my iP4s, and it shows up on my iPad2, my wife's iPad2, my MacBook Pro, iMac, the kid's iPhones, etc. Everyone is instantly updated when my wife, son or daughter updates their calendar (the aforementioned crappy one in iOS). I tried Google sync and other third-party apps to make this happen with no real success.
You like the BB platform and i can understand some of your reasoning, but toy vs workhorse...yawn

I'm loyal to iPhone already. I tried BB and just missed all the extra apps iPhone has. Call me a 'gamer' That's fine. I have tons of apps on my phone, photo enhancers etc, which i can't do without already. Also i have found a company that makes iPhone cases (only) for iPhone 4 and 4s. EDGE Design, kinda pricey but it's worth it for their aerospace grade Aluminum. My iPhone is now pretty much bullet proof.. I might also get a BB again for my new job, but for personal use i can't see myself shifting from iPhone (for now).. Who knows what the future holds for us..
