Why should i buy a Blackberry phone?

 

Hi i am new here. I'm looking for a smartphone but i am torn between a Nokia and a Blackberry. what makes Blackberry better than a Nokia? i'm thinking of issues such as:

 

1. durability

 

2. usability (sifting thru menus, etc.)

 

3. innovative features

 

4. innovative apps

 

5. audio & video codec compatibilities

 

6. 3G and 3.5G signal

 

7. wi-fi connectivity

 

8. after sales support ( like tech support, forums like these ones, etc.)

 

9. easy and "more often" firmware updates over-the-air

 

10. battery life

 

11. camera clarity and in-built features

 

12. music and video player  (being able to add and edit playlist and add songs to that playlist, etc.)

 

13. microSD compatibilty

 

 

please convince me.....

 

* im kinda fancying a 8900 or a 9000

I used to have a BlackBerry Curve and really liked it. Now I have a BlackBerry Tour 9630 and I love it. You can Google it and look at all the options it has. it's great!

Yeah so what makes Blackberry phones better than other QWERTY phones of Nokia or say HTC? what makes it special? why should i buy one? is it durable? is it about the exciting & innovative apps? is it the after sales / customer support you can get via these forums, etc.?
