1. Any BlackBerry phone

Yes, we all know a few BlackBerry loyalists, which includes a friend of mine who swears by his BlackBerry Bold smartphone. Yet, there are many other BlackBerry users who also do a lot of swearing (ahem). Owning one now and waiting for your contract to expire is one thing; but buying a new model, especially when Android phones and the iPhone 4S offer so many compelling new features? That's just illogical. BlackBerry phones use a more cryptic operating system. Apps appear on the iPhone and Android models, but fail to materialize on the BlackBerry. Plus, few models offer a touchscreen. Need any other reasons?
