Once upon a time, I was the proud owner of a Blackberry Pearl. (Don’t laugh) I had worked my way up at a previous employer to be in a position to recommend the products the company purchased. Since mobile e-mail was king, we ended up purchasing a fleet of Blackberry devices. My first smartphone impressed me so much that when I left the company I decided to buy one for myself. I owned two before the Pearl was released, and I really though I had found the perfect smartphone for me. The size, form factor, and RIM’s e-mail integration made this a real winner in my book. Some days, I miss the feeling I had when I first got it…there’s nothing like the thrill of buying your next tech toy. This was right about the time the iPhone began to gain traction as an all touch screen smartphone that had a host of other features that a Blackberry couldn’t hope to match.

As an Android enthusiast, I constantly hear the strident call of those on the other side of the smartphone debate that I am “wrong” for bashing the iPhone and, along with it, iOS. And I am happy to defend from all comers the Android platform and what I perceive as its superiority. So it came as a great blow to my personal belief system when my daytime employer suddenly was to provide me with an iPhone 5S as my work phone. This was to replace my trusty Blackberry which (let’s face it) was dying a slow hideous death. So grudgingly, I accepted my new tech, and thought this would be an ideal chance for me to give it and Apple fan boys everywhere a fair shake by spending a weekend getting to know the “real” Apple. Will I be converted? Will my passion for all things Android taint my desire to use the 5S at all? Read on to find out!
