iPhone was never intended to be a corporate smartphone like that of Blackberry devices.But the features supported and its popularity turned iPhone into a business-friendly device. Blackberry’s [RIM’s] new device “Bold 9000” is a deadly match with iPhone.Blackberry still remains email-king. iPhone’s email client needs to be more powerful.There are actually different audiences for both Blackberry and iPhone.

Both the phones are pretty cool !  😉
