The tactile feel of buttons was very nice and I found that after a few minutes of using the Blackberry (Bold) I was able to type quite fast. With the iPhone, I find the form factor to be an advantage; it feels very slick and great in the hand. The OS on the iPhone is nice to use as well, very minimalistic and the touch screen is great for surfing. I found that no other smart phone on the market has performed web browsing better than the iPhone. Just my 2 cents.
Yes, I was surprised by the weak volume of the speaker phone on the iPhone. I, too, find it to be useless. However, the web browsing is amazing.
