On Smartphones, Facebook & Google Maps Are Killer Apps

  1. My personal experience certainly supports this. As an iPhone user, iTunes is analogous to IE on Windows with no outside options, and Pandora is very much my alternative.

    I believe that this scenario is a primary motivator for Android purchases. Certainly the iPhone has a great experience, but as with the Blackberry, the application is the experience. Device purchases will increasingly become about the application rather than the UI.

  2. Wouldn’t company policies keep Blackberry users to a limited number of (or only certain) apps? I’m a freelancing Razr-user, so I wouldn’t know.

  3. I used to have a Blackberry but I was very disappointed in the limited number of apps I could have installed at one time. Plus I was paying for unlimited internet but it’s internet experience was lacking. Since I have switch to a phone with an Android opperating system I have been much happier. I couldn’t tell you how many apps I have installed – I have an app for just about everything I need to do – travel, go out for an evening, surf the internet, shop and get the best deals locally and on the internet, play games, entertain my toddlers, and the list goes on. Blackberry has a long way to go if they want to compete in the samrt phone arena.
