The Red Activity Indicator Light!
The Blackberry has a flashing red light to indicate some activities like a new text message, email or an unread message. None of the Android gadgets or the iPhone has one. The message pop-up in the screen will vanish within a few moments while, in Blackberry, the red indicator tells that something is waiting your attention when say, you left it in your desk.
