Hey guys, sorry for posting this, but i’m kind undecided. I have a BlackBerry Bold, which is good I mean, Push notifications of RIM rocks is pretty quick, BlackBerry Messenger is awesome (Sometimes annoying). But I’m a web designer! I love web design, and I’ve heard that the iPhone is an awesome tool for us, so please help me choose :) the question is:

iPhone or BlackBerry Bold? :D Thanks!

First I’ll say that I know lots of people that love both. My cousin and I like to argue about which one is better (he has the bold, I have the iPhone). It gets pretty interesting sometimes but it’s all for fun.

With that being said, the iPhone is the winner, hands down. :-P

I’ll of course say that because 1) I’ve never used the bold, just played with it (I know lots about it’s specs though) 2) I own an iPhone 3) I like Apple and it works well with iTunes and other Apple stuff.

The selection of applications is unparalleled right now but Apple is being a bunch of jerks right now with rejecting stuff like Google Voice and Latitude, etc. The iPhone probably has the best browser available on a phone too which is great for web dev/designer people.

I’ve also heard that the iPhone’s construction is actually more sturdy / better quality than the bold. I thought that wasn’t true until I got mine and dropped it, lol.

haha, ok, I’ll stop trying to convince you. ;-) I don’t think you can go wrong with either one but I’m definitely on the iPhone side. :D

Hahaha thanks Jarel, good point… Just for your curiosity, here in Venezuela the iPhone is cheaper.

  • BlackBerry Bold = $2.000,00
  • iPhone = $ 1.200,00

I’m asking this ‘cause some people say ”...expensive is better” :) you know…

That’s interesting. The BB is actually cheaper where I live. I didn’t actually buy the iPhone because it was cheaper/more expensive though, lol. Although, it was very expensive. :-(

Is that $1,200 USD for the iPhone or the local currency in Venezuela? $1,200 USD is very expensive. I wouldn’t get either if the price is inflated that much.
