BlackBerry 7130c / 7130g
Same thing big deal!!!!!
YOU NEED A CAMERA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In corporate USA, that's how it works. And that's wht there is a thing called a Treo with no camera option.
I see we're gonna have to do this long and drawn out....
Overall purpose of a company= to profit
How can one profit?
Sell products with mass appeal
In corporate USA, there are many security protocols implemented ERGO it would be most profitable for to make devices with and without cameras...
Now you and I know that many of these people who get devices from work use them in business AND personal manners, but the whole point from this particular perspective is to make sure the emp's are being productive, not having fun.
Before anyone goes off on how a camera can be productive, trust me, as a sales rep I know. However, corporate use still doesn't necessarily require things like a camera or Media playing capabilities, and business is, after all, what BlackBerry was made to do.
I would still prefer a touch screen though.....
The demand is obviously there even though the device hasn't changed that much nearly since its inception.
I work at one of the busiest data cingular stores in my area and we haven't sold a Treo in about a month. Most people quickly gravitate to a BlackBerry or Cingular 8125 after looking at the Treo's. We also have a list of about 10 people waiting for the 7130 and about half of those are going to be paying the full retail price because they're not eligible for upgrades.

I'm only 15 years old and I use the blackberry 8700c because my family likes to keep in touch, I also have a few other friends with BB's and treo's. I personally like the BB more because it has PIN on it which sends messages directly to another BB, also.. The treo resets constantly and I feel the Palm OS is a horrible OS. BB OS is a great feature, and the BB keeps you always ontop of your work. yes, it would be nice to see a BB with a camera, and mp3 players on it but I dont really see the need. + no one will ever have the same type of Push Email
