You simultaneous ask what's with all the hate, then indicate that you use an Android phone now. It's people like your very own self, people that used to love their BB's that now don't that is causing their implosion. A real one, that the "haters" are reporting on, accurately.

Is RIM supposed to make money for eternity based on what people like you "used" to love? What kind of economic model is that? If people *exactly* like you stuck with their BB's there would be no financial collapse and nothing to report on.
