Sometimes for members of the BlackBerry Nation, it’s easy to miss the forest for the trees. We’re so busy with our PIN to PIN messaging, browser speed trials, network frequency band comparisons, and OS upgrading, that we forget how the rest of the world sees the BlackBerrys that we know and love.

It’s interesting to see what the average citizen is concerned about when it comes to a smartphone. Consider QB’s top two questions regarding the BlackBerry Storm, for example: will it feature an apps store that can compete with Apple’s, and will it have an accelerometer for sweet lightsaber games?
