Default Re: RIM's BlackBerry hits a technical crossroad

I've seen this posted in the Toronto Star. The BB, for a period of time, became much more than a phone. It became a damn fashion accessory, it was "So cool" to have a BB. - I always found this stupid and I still find it absolutely mind numbing to see young teenage kids with BB's. Yes, I get the argument (but it's got a keyboard)...but wow, when I was growing up, a cell phone was already showing off, but no, everyone's got to have a BB.

I, for one, don't mind RIM hitting this solid wall. Fashion geeks are all after the iPhone, leaving BB customers are people who use a smartphone for just that - work. If you're an investor, I can see why this might be bad news....but for me, it's about time...
