I am a certified, card carrying, diehard BlackBerry Addict and I can tell you that I will buy the Apple iPhone day one even though it is on Cingular. I have never said this about any BlackBerry… not even the BlackBerry Pearl and I know that I am one of many BlackBerry users that will buy an iPhone.
RIM doesn’t have to worry about loosing me as a customer because I am a business user. I am, however, somewhat concerned about the consumer BlackBerry users that will bite the Apple. Chances are these folks won’t float two phone bills.
There is no question in my mind that Apple will acquire more new first time consumers than RIM. The bigger question is will Apple convert existing consumer BlackBerry users into iPhone users.
Will you take a bite of the Apple?
