This is a corporate-focused device, by RIM's own admission.
Corporations don't typically purchase equipment for their staff based on the holiday shopping schedule.
beginning of the year for companies typically means a new purchasing budget.
My vote is 'smart'.
(I still don't see much hope for the device at all.)
