iPhone vs. Android vs. BlackBerry vs. Windows Phone: Which phone should you get?

Apple has released the brand new, top-of-the-line, flagship iPhone 5s and less-expensive, colorfully fun iPhone 5c. But is either of them the right phone for you? While everyone here at iMore certainly believes the iPhone is still the best phone for most people, most of the time, we're lucky that every major platform now has one or more great phones for us to choose from as well. The iPhone may have the best overall user experience, the highest quality apps and games, the widest range of services, the biggest selection of accessories, and the best customer support, but there are also things the iPhone doesn't offer that other phones do, like much larger screens, physical keyboards, high power cameras, greater hardware options, or simply no Apple about them. How do you know which one is for you? Keep reading!

BlackBerry CEO, Thorsten Heins, used this mornings earnings call to let us know, but didn't provide any other, more specific details. And, since we're only just at the beginning of summer, it's not likely its just around the corner. Ah, well. Who's waiting, oh so patiently, for BBM?

BlackBerry rolls out iOS support for BlackBerry Enterprise Service

Back in May, we heard from CrackBerry that BlackBerry was getting closer to releasing their Secure Work Spaces for iOS and now, it has finally come out of beta and is available through their BlackBerry Enterprise Service. Not unlike BlackBerry Balance for BlackBerry 10, Secure Work Spaces offers a solution for managed applications so they can be secured and separated from personal apps and data.

Through apps provided as downloads on the iTunes app store, the service offers functions such as integrated email, calendar and contacts, an enterprise-level secure browser and secure document viewing and editing.  As for IT admins, they only need to worry about one management console for all devices running on their network, be it iOS, Android or BlackBerry.
