I dont like bb and will never like one. Nobody forces anyone to install any app. Feel the technologies and use them the way it suits you. For bb never!!!

The title of this should be changed, the BB Storm was the first one without a keyboard.

The only reason they are making a SAFE version is because some people are stupid and would install programs from unknown developers or without firstly reading the kind of permissions they are giving an app. Samsung are only making this to accommodate the stupid/naive people :D

Frankly I am really happy with my BB9900. I use a mobile. I dont play with it. If Android OS is so great why then is Samsung producing a SAFE version of SIII for business. Clearly because Android is not safe. I just cant be bother farting around with all the settings of ICS and for what. Where is the big advantage. People are buying Android as it is cheap and available for $100. Yes it is a great experience for some but it a mobile. So what if it is rootable. Hell go get a girlfriend. Yep I like a keyboard.

you know what... why don't rim and nokia get together... because both are struggling... and if they come out with a combination of nokia's design unibody (slim phone about 6.5.. with no Bessel or buttons) the the internal with blackberry technology and BBM... that would win my heart for sure.. if they come out with something innovative like make the body chhange color...something like that would be a plus

I think instead of doing such wasteful expenditure on these touchscreen ventures where there are already other players present and who have left nothing much to add to a typical high end touch device, RIM must do final preparations to wind up it's hardware business and start selling on it's main strength i.e. providing it's enterprise level security network integration to popular smartphone manufacturers. I think RIM can atleast survive that way before going completely out of business.

pity on those people who uses blackberry, the RIM company is losing its market to android and ios and even on the companies like apple, samsung, lg and htc. the yahoo finance said that the rim will be gone next year....

Even though I love the experience of touch screen and its multi-media potential the tactile feedback of a physical keyboard is ideal for typing. Play to your strengths BB!
