    Default What makes Blackberry so special

    As the title says, i know about push email, other than that is there any major difference between the BBs and other fones, let's a HP fone & a nokia fone?

    also i'm aware of the govt. vs BB battle, so stick to the question please

    Yes. The blackberry wireless e-mail is the reason for the success. It's very fast, stable (not that much recently), tie up with lot of corporates.
    Blackberry Enterprise Server package is very famous in USA.

    wiki says :
    BES can act as a sort of e-mail relay for corporate accounts so that users always have access to their e-mail. The software monitors the user's local "inbox", and when a new message comes in, it picks up the message and passes it to RIM's Network Operations Center (NOC). The messages are then relayed to the user's wireless provider, which in turn delivers them to the user's BlackBerry device.

    One thing that I can say for sure is that nobody else is able to provide better alternative to this and hence Blackberry is still the largest manufaturer of PDA phone in USA.

    BlackBerries have the ability of sending mail faster than the capabilities of Yahoo , Gmail etc.... The Internet experience is blazing fast than rest of the lot ...
    U can get BB Connect over HP , Nokia and SE phones but they aren't successful for push email ( i tried on the Nokia 9500 )

    It's not at all worthy to use Blackberry in India. It's pure business class email phone.

    BTW, they are now releasing a flip-open style blackberry targetting multimedia enthusiasts.

    and yes, Blackberry is for email and internet. Nothing else.

    Actually BB might be a business segment fone, but it DOES make a cool statement too. Don't you guys agree?

    Offtopic: whats the cost of cheapest BB available in India? I heard one of the models sells for Rs.6k or so.
    I saw me running,
    'Twas a long, long run.
    But the view was so stunning,
    And that made it so much fun...

    BB Curve is statement for Style & Business .... The 6K model is 7130g and 11K model is 7100g .... Believe me , if u ppl choose BB once , u won't afford to leave that in for another phone !

    BB Curve has all the features of that present in a multimedia phone .... also , u get handy business phone features as well !

    Curve has the model no. 8310.... BB Pearl has model no. 8120 ! The former retails for 24999/- and the latter for Rs. 21999/-
