    (Former) BlackBerry Users Poll

    Being a former / current Blackberry user as well as a new Android user (Moto Atrix FTW), I got to wondering how many others here were experiencing (or had experienced) the same thing I did: I finally got "with it".

    I left out the "I must use a BlackBerry for work, still" option, since that's not really a choice. It's also my current situation.

    Purely as a productivity tool, the BlackBerry keyboard is infinitely better than the touchscreen on Atrix. Security and privacy would also keep me from adopting an Android device as a primary business tool. The Atrix is sooo much more fun and social than the BlackBerry. For me it's still an AND decision, not an OR.

    I Stopped using my Blackberry as soon as the iPhone 3g came out, but was watching the Android phones The dual core CPU on the Motorola Atrix made my decision to switch from the iPhone to the Atrix an easy one. I have even been a Windows Mobile user at one time. Having had experience with all three, I have a few issues with each, but all three operating systems have positive features to offer as well. Wouldn't it be nice to assemble the best of each into a single operating system?

    Nail => head.

    I concur with you guys: appreciate the security and functionality offered by the Blackberry system, but prefer Android on Atrix for Real Life™ usage.

    MAN! I wish I would have trademarked Real Life™!!! You must be rolling in it!

    ...and back on topic: I'll 3rd the combining of the best features, though I've never called a BB my own. I love my Android, but it still lacks in a few key areas. But, nothings perfect and never will be.

    I even had it gold plated, because that's how I roll, keeping it real and all.

    I have both a BB and the Atrix. Can't get rid of the BB because it is work issued, and to be honest, BB does have better safety.

    Love my blackberry for work and emails also bb messenger definatly better then buying a phone package with unlimited texts . But it is no fun and it's not a phone to show off but thats not what it is designed for and we can all appreciate that. I will never get rid of my bb its battery can get me through 3 days usage and never breaks when I drop it riding :P.

    So I came back to this thread today, searched for it even, as I was wondering how the poll had gone.

    Very interesting results.

    Especially the last one.

    With the latest reports from Gartner, I think we already knew that RIM was sadly losing ground and that Android in general was gaining the smartphone OS shares race. I never would have guessed it had almost half the market though.
