Why are people not willing to try the new BlackBerry?
« on: April 06, 2015, 01:34:37 PM »
I have been a fan of blackberry for a long time and I switched to the new blackberry about 5 months ago. I realized the most people look at blackberry a phone of the past!

My question is why?

You answered it yourself it is a phone of the past the flopped by not moving ahead and now they are still lagging
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

There are few blackberry apps and you need a workaround to get play store apps so why would I want that if I can just get an android

Why should people take a $600 gamble to see if it's good while they can get a android for the same price, that they know is good?

Honestly I love the Oneplus One and have no reason to move to a different OS had blackberry moved along with the times when iphone first came out they would be in much better shape because they would still have the old blackberry people who have since moved to android or ios

another problem is that blackberry may go under at anytime and then you're screwed

Why would that affect the device?

My question is why?
+1 every time I say I have a Blackberry everybody just laughs at me

But I love it, just wish they had more apps, but now with the new OS they have the Amazon app store!! So basically I'm very happy and don't plan on switching anytime soon
If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill
