Slow, unattractive, Unreliable, Bad cameras, Bad hardware in general, shall i go on? I think they maybe make one or two phones that can be classed as "smartphones" but i personally would choose pretty much anything over one of those things!

First BlackBerrys were two way pagers, not phones. First BlackBerry you could call as a smartphone was introduced 2003, so BlackBerry joined the smartphone rally quit late.
