In all fairness, this thread didn't really have a lot of useful substance to begin with.

I love my BlackBerry and like my (work) iPhone. Not sure I could have only the iPhone, but could easily go back to only the BlackBerry.

RIM will never cater to the teeny-boppers!

As frmkt said, xxx8220;The BB is for mobile professionals who rely on email and a phone - period.xxx8221;

Blackberries are the most reliable and secure devices on the market. Stay that way and let the teeny-boppers move on!

9700 works swell for me (so did 8900) but I sense that RIM is losing cache to the touchscreen crowd. Not just the eyefin, but those other newer models like the droid and the htc models. RIM is probably a good short at the current valuation.

I hear that the new BBM will have a lot more social networking features. I think most non-corporate users would bail on RIM if it wasn't for BBM. A non-platform specific Messenger prog based on mobile number would be killer.

You couldn't be more wrong. I see lots of "teeny-boppers" with BBs. They like BBM. And if RIM bets the farm on just mobile professionals using email and phone, then they won't last 2 years. Even the retards at RIM know they need to evolve, albeit very slowly.

i'll be upgrading my 8830 once the 9650 is released from sprint. i would consider the sprint evo 4g, but wimax won't be live in LA till 4q 2010. i think that gives enough time for a blackberry roadmap to leak and see whats down the pipeline. if nothing interesting i'll give the htc evo a try.

Sadly the above is only your personal take on the corporation's future and has absolutely nothing to do with where the company wishes to be.

Jim Balsillie, co-CEO of RIM - Earning Conference Call "Growth in the non-enterprise space is bigger than the enterprise space. The company hopes to grow further in that space with new multimedia and consumer-centric devices."

Don Morrison. Chief Operations Officer of RIM - Dow Jones Interview "We're looking to grow and expand the consumer user base using mp3 music players, digital cameras and media applications.

Mike Lazaridis, co-CEO of RIM - Mobile World Congress Barcelona, Spain "We are actively targeting the consumer user base, the company is trying to attract wider consumer audiences and the new browser along with smart applications are clearly steps towards that direction."

If you're genuinely interested in the company's future i would advice to pay more attention to the public keynotes released by RIM and try to avoid spreading personal FUD and/or personal interpretations of reality that fall far from the truth.

You're also more than welcome to acquire RIM stock and attend the investor events and stockholder's meetings like the rest of us.

The "teenies" you so hatefully bash are RIM's primary target market. And rightfully so.

Complete nonsense, like much of this entire thread. At least there's consistency.

The simple fact of the matter is that blackberries will never be at the bleeding edge of mobile hardware, from the very beginning they have always considered stuff like battery life being vital to a mobile device and as a result it means they will tend to be slightly behind when it comes to adding the biggest screen or the fastest cpu, but that doesn't matter if they keep close enough and keep their own advantages.

I actually think their hardware is pretty good. Its the OS that's behind and in need of work.

Hi - some hints...
1 - Please do not add your thread in the middle (or end) of another one.
2 - Please look in the dedicated BES Admin forum for BES assistance.

Blackberry covers the whole spectrum as far as cell phone niches are concerned. They're not going anywhere.
