How dare RIM do this to us
 
How dare they do this kind of trick to us. Hype up this phone then land a big turd on the door step.

Putting in a processor that was around last Christmas hahah what a joke. What is the gpu in this thing? I would love to see it's bench mark scores.

How long more can we hold onto buying phones from this company, I can't believe what I am seeing :-(

No one is forcing you.



Besides, after your previous posts, you'll likely be locked up and can't use it anyway.

I will continue buying phones made by RIM because they fits my needs just fine. If they don't fit yours, move along and find one that does. Sheesh.

VRaptor 08-04-2010 06:40 PM

Don't understand why you are so surprised. The specs have been out for months.

I agree with you, 100%. Let's start a class action lawsuit. They always work. We'll get rich!

juwaack68 08-04-2010 07:11 PM

I, too, am disappointed. I mean, how dare they not offer this device on Sprint. I mean, really.

No, really.

No.

Not sure what everyone is pissed about. RIM is keeping their identity while at the same time managing to keep up with the rivals. Do we really want RIM to reinvent itself in a desperate attempt to lure the masses? RIM has stuck to whats brought them to the game while slowly but surely bringing the flash. I'm sure the lag on the OS will be remedied with an update in the very near future, then all will be well.

Exactly or give RIM an opportunity to please your needs with future handheld unveilings.

I would agree with you on some level...but I don't think rim is keeping up in the game in more. The are looking more and more like palm when the treo started to fade. While they have great devices ios and android have come in and ran away with the game. And the 9800 looks just like what the palm pre did to me when it came out. You have a tone of hope fore it but at the end of the day you know its not enough of a game change from rim to stay in the fight. Rim is going to have to bring some heat and soon or they will in up another palm like story. (And I say this with a said huge frown on my face I love the blackberry brand and have been a long time user but they no longer or offering the superior device. )

My 2 cents.

It depends on what your looking for.

Are you looking for a phone with absolute rock solid secure calls, data and text,
then the Blackberry is for you. If its secure enough for the President of
the United States, I'm sure its secure enough for me too.

In fact its so secure, the middle east is going to ban Blackberrys because
they cant snoop on them and see what people in their country are shareing
or talking about.

And with just about everyone putting every possible bit of personal
information on their phones, I deffinetly want mine as secure as possible.

Anything else is a toy IMO. If you really need a big fat screen and HDMI, and
1.2g cpu, and thousands of apps (some good, some a waste of time), then
you probably want to look at something else or get a laptop.

Now in the news, iPhone has a new threat, they are totaly hackable!
D'uh! It was never desigend to be a secure device for communication.
Its an iPod that has been modified to make phone calls.

It boils down to if you like what Blackberry is offering, fine.
If you don't, thats fine too.

Its free world, its your choice.

All of these options are probably destin for the first RIM LTE device whenever that is.

bigwillokc 08-05-2010 08:31 AM

I'm sure if RIM were to put a huge 4.5" display and a 1ghz processor on this phone to please you, you'd also be the first one to come back and complain about the terrible battery life...those things come at a cost.

While your totally right in terms of it being a secure device favored among the IT admins RIM can't bank on that long term. I work for a health care IT solutions provider and a year ago if you asked would and iphone be avil in on of our environments the answer would have been a definite no. But this is has changed and inroads are being made in this space we have small groups of physicians now carring iphones and the numbers are changing on a daily bases and the demand is there. Our own government has iphone offerings for officials now. The iphone and any other device can be locked down to satisfaction (does this make them unhackable or better choose no). They need to make moves to stay relevant.

Yeah, so?
The MER has only a 20 Mhz processor. That thing has been exploring the surface of Mars since 2003.

Anyone know how this device will play with the BES? I called T-Support this AM and they had no idea whether any BES patches will be required to address all of the new features and capabilities (via Policy) that come with OS 6.0 and its devices.

UMMMMMM...... WHAT?


As other said, you don't like it don't buy it.

You think it's a joke, so go buy yourself an iPhone or Droid or that new Samsung phone that is 3x more powerful than any other phone or whatever.
