The E210 has specs that are similar to RIM's Blackberry 9000. People in the Blackberry community often refer to the 9000 as the "Cadillac" of the Blackberry line up. For a company that remained under the radar for the most part to instantly mimic a "Cadillac" of Blackberry phones, it just shows that RIM doesn't have their head on right. Meanwhile Aggessors such as Acer are going to eat into RIM's pride and joy and make their customer base look elsewhere for the next big thing (assuming they already haven't).
Why isn't RIM paying attention to their devout fan-base? Why aren't they listening to the competition and reacting more aggressively? Instead, fans of Blackberry phones get stuck with a virtual clone of yesteryear's blackberry phone model that now features buggy software.
Way to go RIM......
and! Way to go Acer!
