    I have had a business since 1984, before cell phones. I saw demos of all the latest smartphones in the last few years, but I didn’t see how me stopping to reply to emails would do anything but show clients that I was being distracted from them, so I stayed with the regular cell phone.
    Somehow, when I saw it – the Z10 and its application to business made a positive impression on me. I waited and bought it. I love it! Clients aren’t distracted, they’re impressed!
    I still am not tempted when others show me their smartphone if it isn’t a BlackBerry. I remember when the company put my city on the map and I’ve seen a giant technology centre in Waterloo that may have never been built without consumer and investor confidence which was created by Research in Motion, now BlackBerry.
    I was just out of university when this company began to grow, and it helped to supply my company with clients in the natural health services industry, especially because it encouraged “thinkers” and that always helps promote natural health care. The company began to build recreation complexes and soccer fields that I used and my child used.
    If this was an American company, they would have supported it, backed it now, and it would be doing even better than it is. Instead even CBC radio (sorry, cbc) seemed to interview Americans, with self-proclaimed knowledge of the smartphone market, slagging BlackBerry without seeming to know what they were comparing. Too bad it seems that consumer confidence is one of the main things affecting BlackBerry stock today. Thanks, Canadians – I’ve been watching while we didn’t collectively lift a (middle) finger.
    BlackBerry was first in its platform, first in its conception of design, first in supplying complete governments and there is still no comparison around the world. I think that most of us are comparing all the others to blackberry, when they have never even reached half the depth of the ability of BlackBerry. It’s like comparing blackberries and black jellybeans.
    Oh well. I keep trying.
