Default Doesn't appeal

The flip phone variation of the kickstart just doesn't do it for me. It definitely looks huge compared to the other two phones. Just sayin...

It is also opened, which is not how it will be in someones pocket...once closed its actually smaller (length wise) than all of those pictured.
EDIT: I am backwards-its smaller width wise, a tad bit longer even closed...

It looks a-okay for a flip phone. Not everyone wants the traditional blackberry, and it is good to see that RIM is trying to come up with a diversified product line.

It definitely has a market. It's not for me, but it's a wise product for RIM to put out.

I think it's a great move. I think flip phones dominate the cell market and this is a great way to bring those people into the bb world.

I agree with kjjb0204, there are many people that aren't business types, or anything like that, and they just .... want a BB! I went into Vodafone tech support and took my old 8800 when it died, and the lady said "Do you actually pay the data plan?" and I said "yeah, doesn't everyone? What's a BB without a data plan?" and she said "Wow, I sell A LOT of bb's and only about 20% of the people sign up for the data plan!" Basically, people bought the BB for being a BB without using data. (In all honesty, if I were to buy a phone WITHOUT a data connection, there are A LOT BETTER PHONES! Especially Camera phones, multimedia phones, etc.)

So now people can get a BB for being a BB and still have it "look cool." and not have to have a full qwerty and have the cool flippy thing going on!

not at the (potential) expense of a bar form SureType device.

I really love the Javelin. Whether they release it first in Chile or not, I am still going to get it. I don't think I can see me with a Bold.

Surely the point is that it's very thick?

... in the US. Not necessarily elsewhere in the world. Certainly in the UK the chocolate bar form factor is massively more popular. I'm pretty sure the same is true of a lot of Europe.
