My BlackBerry is only two months old and I'm still playing around with all the features. However, I have discovered all the free downloads from BlackBerry like Pandora, Poynt etc. I'm really enjoying this new phone. But I feel BlackBerry is the first phone that really works for me and my business. I can keep tabs on my clients without a $30,000 human secretary. I do a backup almost everyday.

Now that its saved me $30,000 in having to pay another human being, I can use that to put back into my company. I am thrilled to have all the information at my fingertips almost anywhere I go thanks to 3G and wi-fi. On some days, I no longer carry a 10lb laptop or take a separate mp3 player. All I need is my BlackBerry and I'm good to go anywhere! This is the start of a beautiful company! ROTFLOL!

We use the iPhone and the Blackberry. The only reason we don't all use the iPhone is just the expense of replacing the other devices. I have found my experience with the iPhone to be so outstanding that I invested in a Mac. I thought, if they can do all of this with a phone what have they done to the computer? I think they stay on top of things and will continually improve the device and everyone else will always be trying to keep up and compete. I am a big fan of the iPhone.

As for use in our business, it is just so easy and intuitive to use. Training is almost unnceccessary. It can do everything we need and probably more that we haven't discovered yet.

This depends upon the function and size of the "small" business.  In fact, many small businesses will do best without these devices.  Although we have improved application interfaces for such devices, we currently do not use these on a daily basis.

I use the iPhone.  I have used Windows based, Symbian and Blackberry devices.  I find that the iPhone offers several advantages: 1) One device, not ten.  I love that when I travel locally, I have my phone, music, entertainment, web, email, contacts, GPS, Satellite Radio, Camera, Camcorder, and Social and Professional Networking on one device.  2) Given the added security of 3G, 3GS, Mobile Me and VPN, I feel safe with my device and it's data.  If you have one of the above devices, look at Cell Phone Superhero from httP://YouGetItBack.com for similar security including recovery, lock down an replacement of the hardware and data.  3) It is so easy to share contact information and use applications for business to complete transactions, write proposals, and send updates on my work with clients.

I know many see the Blackberry as THE business device.  However, I had to replace 3 blackberry devices while traveling due to malfunction.  I have had the iPhone longer than any other device.  Proof that the simple elegance sometimes is the best solution.

In our business, the Blackberry has served us best. Operating out of several offices, servicing clients all over the country, with partners having difeerent areas of expertise, our blackberries make communication between partners so seamless that we might all be in one office and sitting next to the client. Blackberry apps are built for business, documents to go means we can work on documents wherever we are, invoicing and time tracking are so much easier!

I use the IPhone. Although at times it does have some bugs I can conduct almost all my business via the apps. Recently I opened a merchant account ( one of the best I may add if you're interested let me know excellent rates) and the account had an IPhone app.  If I'm in a meeting with a client I can take a deposit right on the spot with my IPhone, that is great!  Also if I have to get the message out quick I can use tweet deck to access my Facebook, and Twitter at the same time.  I enjoy the IPhone because the apps help me accomplish more in half the time.

I prefer the BlackBerry so much so my friends think I should make commercials for BlackBerry.  The keyboard is the largest size I can find and easy to use.  The screen is large and the camera is great.  I only have basic applications as I don't need them.  I am able to open documents and edit as needed.

I use neither. Personally, I like Samsung products & have a Samsung Jet S8003 which suits my purposes as for business, as a designer & photographer perfectly. Its processing speed is super fast with 800 MHz processor making it a joy to multi-task at speed. With 2 gig on board memory & the capacity for a 32gig micro SD card it has more than enough memory.

It is limited in that it doesn't have some of the business apps that iPhones & Blackburries have, but I don't need or use them on a phone anyway. Impressive quality 5 megapixel camera & amazing video functionality & quality, its all touch screen makes for a real nice phone. For marketing on social media &  its internet abilities are superb.


The Jet’s 3.1" AMOLED display with WVGA (480 x 800) resolution is remarkable, and watching video on the go is a real treat with excellent colour and contrast. Wi-Fi, 3G HSDPA and A-GPS are all there and even Microsoft Exchange Active Sync for good measure.

The Jet’s Dolfin browser now features a one-touch zoom function making it far easier to browse pages, which in conjunction with the ability to view up to five pages simultaneously makes browsing a treat.

Although I am a Mac user and do not use any PC emulation software I do not use the iPhone for business purposes.  I believe that the Blackberry is best suited for business.  I find that the phone application and Bluetooth connectivity are better designed for business use.  I have used all three of the devices you ask about and each of them are different.  The iPhone certainly looks the best and the Pre has some compelling features but for day-to-day business use I find the full-size Blackberry to be superior.
