Anonymous, 04 Aug 2010If you want a business phone get a BB if you want a gadget get an iPhone. RIM doesn't waste it... moreTotally, iPhone is absolutely a multimedia device, not a business device, so if you want business gadget, blackberry or nokia e series is my choice.
cellguy, 04 Aug 2010it looks exactly like the Imate Pda2K from 7 years ago! compare it and you will see. It's a front slider, that's how far similarities go.
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2010RIM - you need to fix the following points to make a great business phone 1) Change the sli... moreif the bb torch had an unlocked alternative i'd agree with your wish list but then again i think half of them are uneeded. The SAMOLED display is something samsung has rights to and as of now samsung is the only company who are using this screen technology. This could be a different story later on as amoled has spread to htc and nokia phones etc.Dual sim, again like i said if they had an unlocked version (presumably a european alternative) i could see how this would be convenient but then again this phone is made for US standards and in my honest opinion the dual sim is a commodity. As for touch screen + qwerty im assuming you meant it to be all touch screen w/o a physical keyboard. BB is known to make their devices with a physical keyboard save for the storm 1 and 2 so not having a physical keyboard for a BB device would be "untraditional" for lack of better of words. Even the storm 1 and 2 had a somewhat tricky qwerty system with sure press technology that wasn't fully virtualized. Lastly, the stylus thing, again i think is a commodity and outdated technology for the smart phone category (not entry touch handsets like the cookie or any other touch feature phones). Reason for this is because we are seeing more capacity touch displays than resistive which windows mobile phones and early samsung and LG phones had for their earlier touch handsets. Resistive technology is more common with feature driven phones and more affordable touch devices such as the corby, gravity series, and cookie etc. I also think the new windows mobile 7 devices might be moving toward capacitive tech. seeing from the kin 1 and 2 but who knows they might still continue using resistive technology like all previous windows mobile devices.
BB, 04 Aug 2010* The hardware (casing, build quality, feel) is typical RIM — it’s great. Very solid, actually... moreits actually more than a bit heavy....been playing with it for a while...
so heavy, that i think it might break off the slider with one good drop....
