I never thought I would ever be typing the phrase “ditching Blackberry for an Android”, but the time has finally come. After a lot of soul searching and looking at the direction of RIM and Blackberry, I decided that it was time for me to part ways and jump off of the Blackberry bandwagon.
Yes, my love affair with my Blackberry Bold has come to an end.
How could someone who was so in love with her Blackberry device turn her back on it? Well, after having 3 phones in a year’s time fail and malfunction, I have really gotten frustrated with its unreliability and useability. I am tired of traveling and not being able to work at my full capacity because of Blackberry’s limited operating system. And with each announcement on BBM of others also jumping ship, it was a clue that other people were feeling the same way I was about Blackberry’s poor performance.
My loyalty to Blackberry has now come to an end, friends.
Yesterday, after much thought and careful consideration, I went to the T-mobile store and purchased the My Touch 4g phone. I was almost sold on the Samsung Galaxy, but when I found out that it didn’t have a flash for pictures, I was sold on the My Touch 4g. It’s fast, gives me the web with a large screen, and does everything and more. I can now Skype and face time from my phone. I can also get the thousands of apps that were not available for my Blackberry.
I feel like I am coming out of the dark ages and into the light.
I will miss the wonderfulness that is Blackberry email, as everything appeared in my inbox with a blink of an eye. I will also miss BBM, but since most people were leaving Blackberry for other devices, I was starting to see tumbleweeds.
I am looking forward to a wonderful and prosperous relationship with my Android device.
Have you ditched your phone for another device? Are you still #TeamBlackberry. What’s say you?
