This article not to despite any brand that I describe above. It’s pure my opinion about the device and why I’m not intend to use it.
There’s a friend and before I meet her, the other friend just ask me the same question “Why I not used the Blackberry?” and then she’s just get the point, “are you BB hater?”. Wow.. what a such question? I tried to explain, then I just keep silent. Didn’t know why, but I’m not gadget hater, even it’s a Blackberry!
So, let me explain why I’m not intend to use this device..
1. First of all, the Blackberry service it’s too exclusive. For you know, the Internet Service for Blackberry (Telkomsel, XL, Indosat, Axis, 3 and other) must have a server to provide the customer in Indonesia. Then, this is the part that I don’t like. After the the BB device sync to ISP Blackberry Enterprise Server in Indonesia, the data packet going through to international bandwith into the Blackberry Servers in Canada. That’s why we still spend so much money to pay the service, because it used the international bandwith.
2. Are you wanna read your email, message with a small screen? Wheew, even my low end Samsung get a bigger screen than the Blackberry. 😛
3. Comparing to my internet data plan (I used three|3 as provider), it just Rp.50.000 for 1GB data plan a month. And I pleased to browsing, checking my mail and download some mp3 in my 17″ notebook or even in my low end Samsung. 😀 Still cheap than the Blackbery data plan without register any data plan like Blackberry do.
4. BBM. Yes, its exclusive for the Blackberry device. When you need to read the BBM that came up without notifying your friend that you not yet read them. Can you? When your boss tell something, you read it and not replied. You can see what coming next!
5. Did you know, Blackberry worse about to getting developer to develop the program for them. Yeah, let’s me explain this. Apple with their iTunes Store have million program free or paid on their online store. And same about the Android Market that got bigger program day by day. Then look at Blackberry App World? I don’t think this is good ecosystem. 😛
6. I still have another reason, but I just keep it.. Why? Nothing, just to finish this scrap and eat my dinner.. 😀
