Finally we can comment on friend’s status!! Integration with calendar and messaging is the best improvements!
Can’t wait for this one to come out….
Although, I am sure the iphone fan base are all laughing at our mediocre upgrade. Facebook on the iphone is to die for!”
You’d think the versions between platforms could be a tad closer alike.
Guess the difference is a handheld computer vrs. a BlackBerry smartphone.
“The Rock” – did you really just refer to the iPhone as a “handheld computer”? A “handheld computer” that cannot have apps run in the background….and has no keyboard.
Don’t get me wrong, the iPhone is very cool and very fun (I have an iTouch, so when I’m on WiFi, it is pretty slick), but a “handheld computer” it is not.
IMO you are completely mistaken.
The iPhone Is a Breakthrough Handheld Computer
Just cuz someone said it, don’t make it true..
Just cuz someone said it, don’t make it NOT true either…..
Technically all phones are handheld computers. Some are super locked down by their makers and want their consumers to be little automotons while the rest of the market are allowed to think and manipulate their devices to fit their personality.
Facebook is far far better on the BB Browser than it is on the official FB App.
Quite simply the Facebook app on my BB 8900 is amazing. I have never seen such a well integrated application for my BB as this.
