What We Didn't

  • BlackBerry user interface is still not well optimized for touchscreens (although better than older versions) and often feels clunky

  • Browser is still not as refined as those of Android and iPhone
  • BlackBerry app world is also far behind the Androids and iPhones in terms of the choice of apps available
