    Rachel Crosby speaks about her BlackBerry phone the way someone might speak of an embarrassing relative.
    “I’m ashamed of it,” said Ms. Crosby, a Los Angeles sales representative who said she had stopped pulling out her BlackBerry at cocktail parties and conferences. In meetings, she says she hides her BlackBerry beneath her iPad for fear clients will see it and judge her.
    The BlackBerry was once proudly carried by the high-powered and the elite, but those who still hold one today say the device has become a magnet for mockery and derision from those with iPhones and the latest Android phones. Research in Motion may still be successful selling BlackBerrys in countries like Africa, India and Indonesia, but in the United States the company is clinging to less than 5 percent of the smartphone market — down from a dominating 50 percent just three years ago. The company’s future all depends on a much-delayed new phone coming next year; meanwhile RIM recorded a net loss of $753 million in the first half of the year compared with a profit of more than $1 billion a year earlier.
    BlackBerry outcasts say that, increasingly, they suffer from shame and public humiliation as they watch their counterparts mingle on social networking apps that are not available to them, take higher-resolution photos, and effortlessly navigate streets — and the Internet — with better GPS and faster browsing. More indignity comes in having to outsource tasks like getting directions, booking travel, making restaurant reservations and looking up sports scores to their exasperated iPhone and Android-carting partners, friends and colleagues.
    After eight years with a BlackBerry, Mr. Mindel said he just joined the wait list for the iPhone 5. When it arrives, he said, "I’m considering removing my BlackBerry battery, pouring in cement, and using the BlackBerry as an actual paperweight.”

    ah wapi, bb bado inapeta asikwambie mtu. We nenda cocktail alafu toa bb Porsche yako uone kama kuna apple au android ataropoka kitu.

    unajua huyo anazungumzia hadhi in executive level na sio technical specifications maana sisi vijana ndio tunataka makamera makali sana, mziki mkubwa, sijui mem.card kubwa sana. Ila maboss hawana time za kupiga mapicha mengi wala kusikiliza mziki, wanachojali kashika simu ambayo inaendana na hadhi yake sio akifika ofisi fulani anakuta receptionist anasimu inafanana na yake hapo atajisikia aibu kidogo.

    ni mtazamo tu washkaji, haya yangu mawazo tuu :tongue:

    Mkuu ni kweli bb simu ni ghali specific ndogo wanapata hasara hamna anaekataa lakini hilo la watu wa bb kusema wanaona aibu kutoa simu ni propaganda za wapinzani

    1. Bb ya 150,000 na BB ya 1,000,000 zinafanana design why mtu uwe shame kutoa simu yako? Wachache sana watajua unamiliki kimeo

    Bb ya bei kubwa

    Kimeo bila 3g

    Zinafanana ukiziona nafkiri haijafikia step hio.

    Anyway bb now wamechange wanatumia bb os 10 ambayo itakua full touch kama wenzao japo wameiga ladha ya meego ya nokia but itakua ni come back yao

    Kama unavoona picha hizo ndo simu za bb10 na tetesi zina ram 2gb na processor dual au quad core.

    i know but soon they will lumia 920 bila advertisement inajitangaza.

    Juzi walihojiwa watu 4700 research ya windows phone marekani kua watanunua simu gan ya wp8 50 percent walisema samsung 35 wakasema nokia na 15 wengine kama htc na huawei

    Wamarekani kama mazombie tu wako brainwashed sana wananunua vitu sio kwa quality bali kwa matangazo hawana muda wa kuchunguza quality
