How iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry Users See Each Other

iPhone-BlackBerry-Android-csection

C-Section Comics just posted this great cross-section comparing how Android, BlackBerry, and iPhone users see each other. iPhone users see Droid users as dorks and BlackBerry users as tired old men, Android users see anyone with an Apple phone as cultists and BB users as dinosaurs, and BlackBerry users see iPhone users as babies and Android users as unprofessional shlubs. How they all see themselves is especially funny, mainly because it’s true.

I try not to be too much of a hater, but in my experience as a BlackBerry user, this graphic is pretty accurate. I’ll even take the hit that our egos inflate just a bit towards high-powered lawyer status just for having a RIM smartphone.

In any case, pretty accurate, eh? Android users, do you feel smarter than the rest of us? iPhone users, do you feel like celebrities?

    Quite funny. Actually I had a bberry bold, a droid inc, an iphone 4 simultaneously for 3 months. As a user of all I think bberry users are not very tech oriented are happy with crappy device because they need minimum functionality – just email/messaging and arrogantly assume thats all the world needs; droid users are more of tinkerers but overplay their silly “save the world from apple” union cards but do not recognize that device manufacturers are killing the concept of an open source OS – new android devices are as closed as iOS; and most people who buy iphones are pretentious – they didn’t buy the iphone because its extremely powerful a device especially after jailbreaking but because its cool and a status device.

      That’s…pretty accurate. But I think a fair portion (maybe not a majority) of iPhone users are new to the smartphone market and are attracted to the prospect of its app store.

      I wonder how MeeGo will be marketed, if/when it takes off…

    Funny, but I dont get the last Android one. Pizza guy?

      Its not a pizza guy. Its a guy who stays in his parents basement and eats nothing other than pizza and uses his phone while on that.

        It basically saying a young college kid, pizza delivery job is a job you get while your young.

    Yeah, but all these positionnings are built by the manufacturers more than by the users. Remember the Apple ads (cool Mac-guy versus fat-guy PC). It’s really Apple that says that BB users are like PC users, and RIM say how “busines-like” their products are versus Apple toys. And we simply adopt these stupid positions, dictated by the manufacturers through their ads… Apple says “be cool and use an iPhone”, RIM says “be sharp and use a BB”, and Google says “be smart and use a Droid”. Well, for my part, I am cool, sharp and smart, and I use a… – your guess!

    I hate to admit this as an Android user, but yes, pretty much accurate :) Although my wife also uses an Android phone (Desire, no less) and we even have kids, it’s not THAT accurate :D

    (ps. I don’t get the new Android devices are as closed as iOS devices -comment?)

    • Timi

      Motorola and HTC have locked their nands, you can not mod the phone anymore to add custom roms/custom featues or w.e. more you wanted to do with a phone, i.e. run linux on the desire if you wished. thats what that comment means.
      not entirely true though as some manufactures still leave their devices unlocked, but majority will swing this way.at least you have a dedicated dev phone aka nexus one and rumors are nexus two on its way

    being that a 2 year old can (literally) use an iPhone, this is pretty much on point

    • Prylgrabben

      Well, my two year old son uses my Droid, so what do you want to prove ?

  • SR2K

    I have a Droid X and its kind of true. Im my group of tech-buddies, we have A Droid X (me), a Nexus one, a Moto Droid, a Droid Incredible, and an iPhone 3GS. Guess who is always getting hell.

    I showed this to my dad, a long time BB user, he got a kick out of it.

    My sister (iPhone 4) was much less amused.

    Very Funny!! Seriously though…

    I own a small custom software company and used the Blackberry for many years. I thought I had the best smartphone available for business usage.

    Three months ago I switched to the Droid and the difference in my productivity and usage is like night and day. I have so many new capabilities and it’s actually inspired me to try many other business tools and shake up my routine.

    You should do the same.

    hahaha…. really funny! Thanks!

  • Lights450

    um yeah this is the dumbest things i have ever heard ahahahaha :P but it so true , using phones has dumb us down-for ex. texting while driving yep seen some pretty horrific crashes. Use phones only for emergencies. and yeah if you really want to talk to somebody- go see them geez, you might have even forgotten where that person lives

  • BooDiddypad
