Default 8700 Best Blackberry Ever Made is Discontinued!

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All,
The sad news that the best blackberry ever made is slowly being sold out in all carriers stock. Never to be replaced again. I have several friends and co-workers that agree that the 8700 form factor was the pinnacle of blackberry design. Here are the reasons:
1) Best keyboard ever developed for any pda phone anywhere period. Keys are perfect size and layout is dead on.
2) Analog Thumbwheel allows one handed precision input while doing other tasks.
3) Speakerphone is one of the best ever made.
4) Os is quick repsonding and stable. I dont remeber it ever crashing.
5) Bluetooth stack is very well done and bette rthan most phones.
6) Size with in hand feel weight is just right.

The new blackberry mouse to me and everyone i know is two steps back for Rim. Why hasnt anyone made a petition to blackberry ? You have to use both hands to do anything and input is not precise. Os feels laggy on curve and the keys are too small to enjoy typing. The 8800 keys are cramped and again suffers from non precise mouse.

I would like to see a new blackberry keeping the 2 best features of an 8700.
1)Keyboard
2)Trackweel

I urge everyone in here to take a vote in here for RIM to see.......
