    Yeah ok, now thats just way to silly, Hope they dont waranty it if they do make it, it will break all the time. Same reason I wouldnt buy a flip phone, i wouldnt buy this one.
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    I wonder if those wings will allow the phone to fly smoothly when you want it tossed to you from the other side of the room!

    That's just downright ugly. I love SureType but if that comes along, I won't buy it unless it flips down (kinda like the SE P800/900), not out to the sides like that.

    Thank goodness not everything patented gets created.

    Based on the button size they may be trying to lure in the older crowd. It's the AARP sponsored BB!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Sounds like the roll-on-roll-off-keyboard they got a patent on. That was also discussed here a long time ago...

    Some one needs to introduce that guy to a woman or vice versa. Ridiculous is not even the word to describe that.

    This things on BGR right now, and the piece was written by a dude who disparages Blackberry trackballs as breaking all the time! At any rate, I wouldn't expect RIM to bring a phone to market based upon this design!

    Thumbs down

    Boooooooo! It's wayyyy ugly. Seems it would be too easy to break by people like me who don't know their own strength.
