Because they really didn't make sense, in general terms and as per your argument that the BB is better than the iPhone, which is really just a toy.

Back on topic: I was in Staples about an hour ago and they had a BB playbook next to a Samsung Android tablet and the BB was painful to use. Typing was not quick, and the phrase 'hello, how are you' came out like 'hellohware you'. Also, I was unable to leave the text program on the BB... I couldn't get back to the home screen. On the droid however, everything was far more intuitive and was able to move from app to app with ease.

The BB had nicer hardware though, definitely better quality.

the playbook came too late and still somehow rushed out. tied to the phone is also idiotic. they have potential but marketing and planning is run by monkeys. which makes it the inverse of apple (devil.gif)

i really wish they wouldn't try to nibble at the lowest-common-denominator of a group with this kind of product

The inverse would be that Apple doesn't have potential but marketing and planning is run by geniuses? puzzled.gif Is that what you are trying to state?

And yes the BB playbook was just as badly done as the HP webOS tablets.

BTW, the best phone in the world in terms of battery doesn't have a removable battery (no, it's not the iPhone).

But it wasn't originally $99... nor was the Playbook (who'se price is now $199 under the 'clearance' banner). Look at the situation dispassionately, and not from a personal point-of-view and why they failed will make sense.
