While the specs push up...screen resolution, memory, improved camera, etc., RIM is still missing the boat on 4G, screen size, dual core processor, front facing camera, and is just not competing with the upcoming Android devices to be released shortly.

I happen to like Sure Press and would abandon it only if the Monaco offered more than just a few number improvements. The bold Touch has 8GB of storage on the phone. The Monaco, only 4GB.

This appears to be nothing more than a Storm2 refresh and seems to stay in line with BlackBerry's position of staying just behind the competition. With all the hoopla of the Torch release a few months ago, they still managed only a vertical drop down qwerty while Motorola was providing full screen horizontal sliders, larger screens, and more exciting hardware features.

For the most part, RIM is entrenched with small, cluttered keyboards occupying 1/2 the size of their handsets, in portrait position.

Where is RIM on 4G? That omission alone is a game breaker for me....
