    The only thing this OP does is highlight how great BBM is.

    Great? Congratulations, a phone can send messages. It also highlights that the BB sucks as a gaming device. That is inarguable.

    Angry Birds needs a serious retina display update. They had like 3 updates since the launch of the iPhone 4 and no graphics update. Lazy developers.

    Have you even tried using BBM? It's a million times better than texting.

    And, not everyone gets a phone because of it's gaming potential, you know.

    :D. I don't think the BB cares too much about being a "gaming system". They'll leave that argument for the iPhone and PSP to have.

    This is a big boy phone.

    Saying something is (hilarious) makes it not very (hilarious) at all.

    I wouldn't say a million times better than texting. Cheaper perhaps, since it doesn't require a texting plan. Other than that it's about equal. Oh, until your realize that you can't message any of your friends who don't have Blackberries. Because you know, most of us don't choose our friends based entirely on what phone they have.


    At that point BBM starts to kinda suck, really...

    The problem is, market indicators - something that big boys tend to pay attention to - indicate that even big boys want iPhone-like devices. Because big boys, after a while, grow tired of brickbreaker. RIM can't keep being stodgy forever.

    Actually you are wrong..

    Things BBM can do that SMS can't:

    1) Read and Delivery stamps
    2) Encrypted Communication
    3) Group Communication (Shared Calendars, Shared Pictures, Shared To-Do Lists)
    4) Status Updates
    5) Free Global Messaging
    6) Free Global Picture, Video and Voice Messaging
    7) Emoticons Support
    8) Way faster than SMS
    9) Unlimited Character Input
    10) Multiperson Chat (Different than Groups)

    Those are 10 off the top of my head that are leaps and bounds ahead of SMS. There is no way you can even come close to comparing SMS to BBM.

    I'm wrong that BBM doesn't permit messaging to non Blackberry users?

    That's nice, but within the past couple of years, I haven't had a text message fail on me. And for most critical communications, I call people.

    A nice feature, but not exclusive to Blackberry. These are all handled by MS Exchange and similar platforms, which permit a broader range of devices to take part and without the need for SMS OR having to route all the way to waterloo and back.

    Again, ONLY to other blackberry users, which was my original sticking point.

    None of these are features that are exclusive to Blackberries, and other platforms are more open and permit multiple device types to take part. In 2001 maybe they were big deals. But not today.

    Again, RIM to needs to innovate more to stay relevant.

    BBM > SMS hands down.

    and who the hell honestly thinks the iphone is a "gaming" device? I prefer all of my gaming devices to have hardware buttons so my fingers don't block my view of the screen. The iphone's games are good for when you're waiting for the bus or a doctors appointment, other than that, it's DSi/PSP all the way for portable gaming.

    Free global messaging? Unlimited character input? Almost sounds as good as email!

    Apple also needs to innovate because google's android is blowing IOS out of the water at the moment.

    I have, and still use my BB Bold once in a while, however, I do not agree with you that the BBM feature is a "million" times better than texting, ymmv.....

    The continued long delivery times and high demand disagree with you.

    Uh, that's great.. and besides routing shared calenders through Gmail/CalDAV, what exactly are you getting that MSN doesn't get you?

    I'm not restricted to BBs or even cell phones to do MSN with people i know.

    Now this is something that I do agree with 100%. RIM's latest 6.0 update, is not enough to keep them in the game, IMHO.

    About half of that list isn't possible with Windows Live Messenger.
