That said, new and bold doesn't always mean innovative either. I want to see and touch the thunder before I cast judgment.
I was not aware that my "I am not that excited...." comment said anything more about me than, well.... I am not that excited. Kind of presumptuous, I would say. I am not quite sure where the "scary and shunned" stuff came from as I can not find anywhere in my post where I say the device is scary and should be shunned. I approached the switch from the track wheel to the pearl navigation with the same "wait and see" attitude as I am using for the Thunder, and it turned out that I LOVE the new navigation technology. Perhaps I will LOVE the touch screen BB, however, I am still not that excited... and, BTW, my level of enthusiasm (or lack thereof) has nothing to do with the judgment of the device, rather than my eagerness to see it.
Lastly, what makes you think they did not develop this device with me in mind.....
