BlackBerry users are a difficult bunch to describe as they tend to fall into two categories, but categories that are really quite disparate. On the one hand you have world leaders Barack Obama and David Cameron as CrackBerry addicts, and on the other you have uber-cool celebs like Katy Perry, Russell Brand, and Lady Gaga. BlackBerries have for a long time been seen as the must-have business phone, and a lot of users haven't moved away from that even though there are smartphones with the same capabilities and more guts.
One thing BlackBerry users all have in common is that they are a bit scared of tech and change. A BlackBerry is a straightforward device that is easy to understand and looks more like a conventional mobile. BlackBerry users might enjoy the power in creating change in other areas, and are often quite creative, but do not like change thrust upon them. And do not ask them about their favorite apps, as they wouldn't know what to do with them.
I have to disagree with Digital Trends, who peg BlackBerry users this way: "[They] believe that everything has a place, and that it should be in that place." I think it's more likely that they want to feel that way and maybe their BlackBerries help them to feel more in control, but often their personal and home life is hectic, disorganized and untidy.
To complicate things further, there is also a sub-group of BlackBerry users that keep their BB for business, and another phone for pleasure; I can't decide whether this makes them greedy, obsessive-compulsive, or just lovers of gadgets.
