Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that apple or google have been super innovative as of late either ... But innovation is usually what compels people to make the switch.

QNX is theirs of course, but has minimal visibility and brings little improvement to the table. But its hardly new , and far from a revamp of the OS that has been floundering for the last 3 years. As for BES, I agree this still is one of RIMs positives, however my opinion of RIM was specific to their attempts to become a leader in the consumer market, not their business/government segment. My point was to illustrate that they have not brought anything that I find compelling to make the switch. Apple hasn't either but until I see something worth making a switch, I'm content.

I definitely don't discourage people from trying the device. I have and I am thoroughly not impressed.

But this is all talk, time will tell and I do have the best hopes for RIM
