    A new phone concept: Work Phone vs. Personal Phone

    Am I the only one with seperate phones here? I love my blackberry for work; the iphone wouldn't do; and I love my iphone for everything else; the blackberry wouldnt be much fun.

    Does the blackberry need 1B apps? No. It's for emails, contacts, outlook compatibility, security, and reliability (especially when dropped).

    If you can work off of your iphone full time, I think that just means you don't need a seperate work phone at all.....

    • Wouldn't it be great if it had two phone numbers? One for work.... one for home!

    • There, fixed your title.

    • Sounds like the mullet phone! Business up front, party in back.

    • no you're not the only one. playbook is for producers, ipad is for consumers. a world of difference. ipad can't even access my web hosting panel, and does'nt have flash. however, it does have great games and assorted apps. there is definitly a distinction between the 2 devices, and room in the industry for both. We are playbook users, excited for the BB10 release.

    • Do you use different computers for work and home? - Yes, Windows for work; Apple for home

      Do you watch a different TV for news and entertainment? - No, but they only involve being turned on and off; I use the cable box for news and the Apple TV for movies, shows, etc.

      How about a typewriter for writing contracts and one for writing a love letter? - Love letters should be written by hand; using a caligraphy pen if you want it to be really romantic.

      Your vision is about as good as Stevie Wonder's. - His other senses were all well enhanced. There's the problem: You only look at 20% of the picture...

      This is the Post PC Era.
      No one is going to carry more than one computer in their pocket.
      - Wrong again: How can you calculate an estimate, write up a formal proposal, run an analysis program, prepare plans/drawings/output, deal with technical emails that are dozens of pages long plus the previous chain, compose technical reports, type up change orders and/or additional work proposals, research products services and technical codes, incorporate that data into reports, store photos labelling folders for dozens of different projects with dozen of different locations with dozens of different applications, and...
      ...manage payroll, manage invoices, keep track of corporate finances, store employee information and certifications, and...
      multi-task in between these all at the same time...
      A phone(smartphone, iPhone, or other) is only so useful.

      Unless one is called a BlackBerry. - I don't need to post a picture of what I'm eating at that moment and update my status on how I feel at that point; but I do need my emails to load instantly, and send instantly, and be able to read the email trailers on the same screen.
      Then it's just a phone.

      Computer's obsolete? - Not this decade...
