People. Let's not forget why we love blackberry. It's all because it's the best encrypted device. And secure
You can encrypt an Android...

Can someone explain what's so great about the emails?

The same people that buy outdated technology also think that email is a recent invention only available on BB.

I left blackberry when my company switched to Microsoft Exchange server. Emails would only sync every 15 minutes or so unless i purchased blackberry BES. The IT department tried everything including tweaking settings on both the server and the device... Gmail emails came instantly, but exchange emails took 15 minutes (which was usually 16 minutes too late ;D

I did love the keyboard and thought i had everything and would have a BB forever...boy was i wrong. My Samsung Galaxy S5 is light-years better. The only thing i still miss is the keyboard but SwiftKey helps.

No idea... They tried and tried and the only solution was getting a new phone. Perhaps it was an older bb? I had the tour 9630? This was like 3 years ago.

 I will add that there is something to be said about having a phone that takes less than 10 minutes to reboot

The president uses a specially customized extra-secure version of the blackberry so it's not really applicable to this conversation.

Anyway, I don't think he really uses it, he just carries it on his belt because it looks cool.
