Default Ok, RIM, c'mon now......

Please Login to Remove!

I have just seen some bad-ass devices that Sony Ericsson has shown off lately such as the Aino and Satio. I mean these phones have sharp high res screens, high megapixel cameras and small formfactors. When is RIM going to start creating devices with uber features such as these? I'm very happy with my Pearl Flip, don't get me wrong, but it just seems that RIM's devices seem to be a little slow on catching up with some of these kickass featuers. I mean, even the upcoming Storm 2 seems to be lacking a bit as far as badassness, lol, is that even a word?

Yes, I have my flame suit on, so go ahead.....discuss

I just reviewed the specs on the Sony Ericsson Aino, and there are a lot of specs! It looks like a good phone, but it does not appear to be a business phone --- more of a gamer player's phone. OP if you want it, go get and no hard feelings.

The BB won't sync up to your PS3

How can RIM miss out on this?

BB's are mainly for business users, not PS3 users.

google123,

feel free to leave the BB world and venture out into the real world. I left after 3 years for an iphone and haven't looked back. It doesn't take long to realize that there is life after BB. I honestly can't even remember what I liked so much about all my BB's. The email was good but not as good as on an iphone.

Default G'bye BB...Maybe

i'm pissed that Sprint/RIM has yet to release a new BB yet aside from the 8350i which is just another curve with push talk. No Bold like everyone was saying for a while, no 8900, nothing. I am one to keep up or at least try to with technology and I am pretty impressed with the Palm Pre from what i've seen and read. Sure it is missing a few things that I'm used to like something as simple as an alarm clock, password keeper, profile changer, and a few more. But I am willing to give it a try if I can find myself to change my plan since you pretty much have to in order to purchase a Pre. Apps will be sure to follow soon since everyone out there knows what it's lacking.

Yes, but quite a bit less than before, so for some things we can rejoice.

If that's true, then pigs fly, the Pope is not Catholic, bears don't shit in the woods, and snakes don't drag their balls on the ground.

The Aino looks like an old travel alarm clock I used to have.

Not if the iPhone does e-mail better than the BB as gadgetfanatic postulates.
