Really good point now I will be able to use Mobile Admin while talking to the person on the phone, if I have to do a password reset etc.

And also, you could be on a call and need to look something up on the net fast! While on the call open the browser and find that info 3 times as fast then compaired to EDGE all will on the call and not having to say I'll call you back so I can find that info.

There are HUGE benefits to having 3g with simultanious data and voice

I am in fact the 'huge business person' that you speak of and I don't really see it as a big deal at all. A benefit yes, a major factor worth upgrading for, no.

For me the big advantage is greater media storage. That is a big benefit to me.

Is it really not a RIM issue when it appears that all the carriers are delaying the device?

The new August issue of Inc. magazine has the Bold featured in a product review and lists its price at "About $300 to $400; wireless.att.com"

I assume thats good news...

I don't believe that for a second. Despite what we tell ourselves, the Bold is not a direct competitor for the iPhone. The majority of people who have purchased iPhones weren't debating between that device and a BlackBerry, they simply wanted the iPhone.

You're talking about such a small percentage of the iPhone consumer base. You're talking about people like us, who obsess over these devices and follow their every development. Most consumers don't even know these things exist until they see the advertising, or some feature on the evening news "Steve Jobs announced the new iPhone today!" The perception of BlackBerry is still that of a business device. It's not going to appeal to a majority of the folks who are inclined towards Apple's product.
