    BB makes far more secure phones than Apple does.

    However, Apple makes phones that:
    1) Don't crash constantly like BB phones
    2) Regular people can figure out how to use
    3) People actually want to buy

    I worked sales / customer service for a phone company for a few years. Now I work IT security.

    Apple devices have issues too with data corruption and also good share of factory serviced devices too across the board. RIM should have stayed in the SmartPhone or PDA which they're famous for. Playbook okay but not Android Emulator won't get out of beta until next year with the OS 2.0 I am told by RIM. Still Android is growing it's share of customers this is where I am today!
