Are you failing to remember Apple was once in a position in the early 90's when people were calling for the company to die already? In investors eyes as well as the general public's eyes, Apple had no hope and now look at them. Blackberry have released a phenomenal phone, arguably one of the best smartphones to come along in a very long time.

Just because you're planning on moving from the Blackberry platform doesn't mean everyone else is. Unless you speak for the general system administrator crowd, you're making baseless assumptions. And this is nothing like the Palm Treo debacle, Blackberry have not only developed a powerful and beautiful operating system but have built a phone that is of a much higher standard than Apple's increasingly irrelevant phones. Blackberry have just stepped up their A-game, nobody could have released a better phone than this at this point in time, not even Apple.

Apple irrelevant? Really. As for the quality of the new blackberrys the verge gave the best one a 7 out of 10.

"increasingly irrelevant phones" that somehow keep selling more every year.

Did you read that article by any chance? Full of assumptions and statistics obtained essentially from asking 250,000 people what phones they bought last year... Those claims were from a sales poll, not any official sales report. All this post is doing is stoking the flames and begging for a raging response from Android and Windows Phone users.

I don't have a dog in this race nor was it meant as flamebait. Just pointing out that ever increasing sales of iPhones make me doubt that they're becoming "increasingly irrelevant". Analysts may think that Apple should've sold more, but they also sold more than they've ever sold in a single quarter.
