With the iPhone and Nexus S out, I've been wondering how RIM has any market share left. Here's an article that advances three reasons BlackBerries still exist: their physical keyboard, their blinking red light on top (really???), and their no-funny-business persona. Do these reasons make sense? Are there other reasons to have a Blackberry?

- The people I know who extensively use blackberries refuse to use a device without a keyboard. And really, the blackberry keyboard is the best one out there (that I've been able to play with), so I think they have a point there. The other two reasons are pretty unbelievable to me.Jul 21, 2011
- Blackberry messenger allows encrypted emails... Else for the keyboard there is this iPhone case which looks really nice: http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/cellphone/e66e/Jul 21, 2011
- I have to say the blinking red light thing I can actually agree with. It lets me know I have a new message instantly and from a distance. But please let me have my iPhone back....Oct 11, 2011
