Better luck next time RIM

by FSCdude    Nov 22, 2008, 11:38 PM

I had high hopes but now all I can hope is that RIM fixes this seriously deficient phone.

There are things I like. I like how the click screen prevents me from accidently hitting links when enlarging wep pages. I love the screen transitions. I love the big colorful screen. I even like the new menus.

The problem is that the phone is just not up to par when it comes to software and I do not think the click screen will hold up.

The software is slow, buggy, and unpredictable. If I have to see that darn spinning clock anymore I am going to throw this thing out the window. It also freezes up ever hour or so.

The screen itself is clever but not that great for use. It slows my typing down considerably and is already getting lint lodges around the screen. I think if it doesn't break physically it will be a nightmare to keep clean underneath.

Try again RIM, and this time just make it a regular touchscreen with better software.
