My 14 year old daughter’s iPhone had to go in for repair (and a software upgrade) today. For a replacement, I lent her one of my old BlackBerries.(8300 Curve). She greeted me when I got home from work today with, “I LOVE BlackBerries”. I was lost for words. I thought the iPhone would win out any day over a BlackBerry in a popularity contest in that age demographic.
Her reasoning… The Curve is heaps easier to text on, the profiles are easier to change, and the whole OS more intuitive.
Well that’s one convert. (As she is positive she will not be giving it back).
It’s changed my thinking a little as I really didn’t think the Bb stacked up in the teenager market place. Maybe RIM does stand a chance after all…
