A capacitative touch screen, RIM. Is it so fucking expensive? Given that like bada, the BB os is in-house, do you really have to make your phones so fucking expensive.

Your company is going down.

the easy way to gain your capital,

is to sold your bbm via apps.

to Google or to Apple or to Microsoft (windows)

there, u can gain revenue again.

but downside, nobody have to buy your phone.

keyboard phones are history and ancient.
this phone has a display thats hardly visible.
at10000/ you have a choice of buying a good android with 3"screens.
for me to carry around a phone with keyboard&with a small screen is stepping a generation backwards.
besides,the specs are pathetic to say the least,

all BB handsets are overpriced to begin with,.. Rather than introducing a cheaper phone they should reduce existing prices to what they are actually worth.... Otherwise story of Playbook is known to all,.

Poor phones in terms of latest features looking at the price tags, even high-end phones of bb do not hav front facing camera for video calling.

EUR160 (MYR 650) for this non-3G phone? We can get other models with 3G features with the same price. It's still expensive.

i like how GSMarena tells it how it is, meanwhile over at Crackberry they've dressed up this brand new re-hash of the same product line-up that's already out there.

Next device will be the 9230 WITH 3G this time (and that would be the ONLY difference).

Totally flop show by rim. India is a place where people wants a phone with al the latest features like 3G, video cal, better camera etc..below 10000rupees and bb is giving only wifi on this phone with 11000rupees. Where range of BB phones starts with 9000 rupees. Better to buy Samsung smartphones with 3.5G connectivity.
