Ehhh. It's a phone. With BB7 .. I'm sure this will impress anyone who has lived under a rock since '05 or will finally cash in on their upgrade and finally ditch their Treo 600 by Handspring... ((( YAWN )))

It may impress Android users that have to plug their phones in several times a day to keep them charged or iPhone users that can't expand their internal storage. Oops! should have gotten that 32Gb model instead Laughing
Very secure phones for enterprise use too. even the pres has one.

Seriously, Blackberries may not have the "Bling" some users want, but they aren't exactly irrelevant phones either.

I would NEVER discount RIM's equipment on their security, battery life, or the fact that they are a messaging POWERHOUSE.

Its just hard to get excited about their devices.

It's like trying to get excited about a Volvo. they're boxy but theyre good at what they do. Would I be upset or embarrassed about cruising around town in a Volvo? No, will I jump up excitedly and lose sleep until I see the unveiling of their next station wagon, I'm going to go with NO on this one as well.

(((Still Yawning))))

Ok, you got me there. Comparing a blackberry to a Volvo is probably pretty accurate. The excitement and the wow factor aren't there. Just watch the excitement the iPhone 5 is generating and they don't even know what it looks like yet.

Maybe next year when they port over the QNX operating system from the playbook. Should be a big change for RIM
