BlackBerry is a company in decline, at least in terms of its smartphone market share. But that doesn't mean that BlackBerry phones should be discounted. In a sea of identikit Androids, iPhones and Windows Phones, the humble BlackBerry continues to stand out. They generally look different, for one thing. And that is because they are build principally for communication.
If you want a handset primarily for emails, SMS, IM and - yes - making phone calls, a BlackBerry is still a good choice. With a hardware qwerty keyboard, most BlackBerrys are designed for regular lengthy hammering by even the least dextrous fingers. And their sqare displays are perfect for reading and viewing email, documents and even spreadsheets.
Those are the benefits of the handsets, but you should also consider the wider business benefits. If you choose a BlackBerry your company's system administrator will love you forever. BlackBerry's server-side email software is secure, and remains in the control of the sys admins back in the office. If you take a little too much refreshment and leave your handset in a restaurant, they will be angry about the cost of replacing the phone, but happy that all your company data remains safe.
