Its good for the economy and their stocks.
It was not long ago that each carrier only had one RIM device if any so your choices were slim! I remember suing a 6510 from Nexel and thought the 7520 was near magic when it dropped. Today AT&T has multiple device and even colors to pick for a Blackberry user!
Yes these are the best times for everyone, including the iPhone user. The first generation iPhone was a great hit and I can all to well imagine what the iPhone II will bring and III. Heck, I might even give one another go but not for now. I guess I am getting old but I want a real QWERTY keyboard. A keyboard that I can feel each key being depressed! I am still getting used to the BALL as the trackwheel on the side of my Blackberry offered me "tactile feedback". I knew how many clicks and pushed it would take to do something and I could feel it! Now I need to be looking at my device to use the ball as it gives me no feedback. After time I can see the advantage but it took a while. I will NEVER get used to typing on glass and for those who say they can type faster on their iPhone that any other device, best to you!
