this is not an odd move, RIM's stocks are going to go down like crazy this phone is out so smart investors can go and grab everything at extreme low rates then with the release of bb 10 stocks will explode meaning a huge profit.
As soneone else pointed out, this really IS the best example of flogging a dead horse.
People might just start to feel sorry for RIM now and buy their stupid 7.1 phones out of sympathy.
"This is an odd move by RIM, who is essentially trying to get the last morsel of profit from a dead OS"
Look at that comment. Hahaha dead OS.
And I'm TOTALLY AGREE. ROFL
Is this not just T-Mobile's 9320? It certainly doesn't look different enough to be a truly "new" handset
You would be much better off getting hold of a 9300 Curve running on OS version 6.0 than this. Bring on BB10.
What a silly thing of RIM to do a week before the release of Blackberry 10. They need to put all their focus on that. This is pointless...
