blackberry for android? that would be barking mad
Wouldn't that just be a not very good email client? Like all the others on Android and ios?
I've moved from blackberry to android with my last change, and in so many ways I love my new phone, sorry palm size computing platform with phone capability, but blackberry email rules, and rules really really hard. The reason for that is because they control the platform, so all the little design compromises that slip in are there to improve email, whereas on android/ios it's all about the 'user experience' and screen, and multi touch, and market place, and multimedia and and and. With the result that there are no good email clients. Not the way blackberry is a good email client.
You can see the difference by adding a 'imap to a normal server' email to a blackberry - it's also crap.
The magic is the combination of knowing the hardware inside out, controlling the server software, and writing the client.
If Blackberry want to play in the wider space they need to get better at the 'everything else', but email (and messaging, bb messenger is cool too), they have sorted. I miss the email, and it might on it's own be enough to push me back, even though in every other way my new galaxy s is worlds better.
