I agree that RIM is listening to their customers. Me, in the other hand, im a first time blackberry user. The pearl to me was a bone on a string, hehe. The size, the camera and the idea of me owning a blackberry that didnt really look to much as a business phone got me to switching from regular cellphones, hehe.
I find blackberrys to be mini laptops. Before i owned one, i had to go home to print map directions from my PC but now it's a totally different ball game and sure makes my life easier.
My point to all this is: Everytime i heard RIM or BlackBerry, i always thought corporate, business and all that.
The pearl was a device to basically pull more people in for different aspects like me. I dont really need BES, im just fine using BIS plus the camera to me is great. Like i said, " a bone with a string ".
I cant wait for the CRIMSON release.
P.S. Imagine all these business men going into high security building with a pearl or a camera phone period? There not in business to take a quick snap shot of a nice flower right outside the complex but more to stay in touch with important meetings and track their business/customers.
P.S. Thats why they release different products in different times of the year, if this release is not for you then dont stress it, they might accomodate the next batch of customers request or simply do a camera or whatever upgrade to the same design...i.e, The "Crimson", which im holding out for as the 8800 doesnt suit my taste at the moment, life can be so much easier if we dont critizise what is not our taste.
Just my 2 cents.
