I would disagree. They are spot on when it comes to business tools vs toys.If you want to get the job done and be totally business, nothing can beat a BlackBerry. The Hub, general PIM functions, sound profiles, notifications cannot be matched by anybody to date.
I made a huge mistake recently by switching from BB10 over to a Galaxy S5 and several weeks in, I am kicking myself for doing this. The Android is a gorgeous OS with lots of fun toys but when it comes to PIM and business productivity it just plain sucks. I had to root the damn thing just to get the volume button to not adjust my ringer volume ... WTF! Also, Android is so incredibly inconsistent and fragmented with its UI's. At least BlackBerry and Apple strive to get consistency with UI design.
I know that Apple likely does a better job with PIM than Android but it still cannot compare to BlackBerry.
The new BlackBerry Blend is an awesome implementation and model. Who needs syncing and the could when all your secure information is locked into to just one device that you have with you at all times. The concept is sound and implemented very well.
But BlackBerry sucks for Linux support and you cannot run BB Link on many older OSX machines. This was a huge issue for me and a big reason for my switching as I don't buy new iWare and don't run Windows at my house any more. Also BB's method for connecting over USB through a virtual ethernet connection is beyond stupid. For instance, if you are running a Cisco VPN client and connected, it will block the BB connection and how stupid is that.
I will switch back though once I find an old laptop that I can run Windohs 7 to connect and find someone that will trade a new Galaxy S5 for a Z30.
