    Well, as most of us BlackBerry diehards will say, I'm taking the "wait and see" approach.

    The good news is that RIM has finally admitted they have a problem. That's the first step in making lasting, impactive changes. And it's certainly exciting to read about what could be in store for us RIM devotees, but this "transition" is definitely a long overdue one. I really hope we're not disappointed yet again.

    I love my i4, but if RIM makes a device this good, I'll be one of the first to go back. BlackBerry was my first smartphone and I still think the 9700 was one of the best devices I've owned.

    Yes....it's described in the "Articles of Confederation for Sanctions Against New Companies": Section 7, paragraph 3, 4th sentence, words that are bold-underlined and in italics.....we need to take them to task....

    Too little to late ! they want to move ahead after leaving bad impressions on consumers and even their stock has been affected. I'm not saying that the Company is going to sink but what I'm saying is that they have brought unnecessary calamity to themselves. Changing OS 6.1 to 7 to buy time , no good ! Playbook with lack of finished ends , no good ! Showing new BB on their page ahead of their congress , no good ! Bad press about losing your cool , no good ! Making BB with just few refresh for years , no good ! Looking rushed and panic , no good ! My wifes BB browser working slow to render pages , no good ! They need to take a hard look and change before their reputation takes a deeper dive. Just my experience and honest consumer observation. Be respectful of my view and of me as a person everyone.

    Seriously dude no offense you need therapy. If you are that unhappy with rim switch phones and be done with it. Most companies if you are close to your contract being finished by as much as 2 months witll still give you the upgrade price. You are acting like rim personally insulted you. Does rim have things they need to fix, yea. Is rim playing catch up right now in the market, yea. Are there certain features I want on my bb but dont have, yea. But ya know what for all their flaws I still like my bb the best. And I think they will come out with something great soon. If I didnt, Id stop using them and get a different phone right then and there contract or no. Its just like people that hate their job, you have the option to leave anytime, you may not want to because its hard to find another job or because it will be uncomfortable, but you ALWAYS have the the choice to leave. (unless you are in the military)

    Remy, I am going to respectfully disagree with you. I can't find anything in jhutton's post that wasn't accurate. As with most forums, this one included, a lot of the posts have to do with perception and opinion, and a venue to express those opinions. He stated plainly that this was "his observation", leading the reader to assume that it is his opinion only, which he is entitled to. Expressing one's opinion does not necessarily merit therapy. Although Del is pretty sure I could and should be committed.

    yea when did I say he wasnt accurate? I was referring to the fact that he was getting overly heated over something that didnt merit it. Which is where Im accurate. When you use ! in the context he did it means yelling or anger. Just like TALKING IN CAPS

    An exclamation mark, exclamation point, or bang (!) is a punctuation mark usually used after an interjection or exclamation to indicate strong feelings or high volume(shouting), and often marks the end of a sentence.

    There is nothing wrong with opinions and if you look at what i said I never said he was wrong. In essence I was saying relax, and giving options. And when i said he need therapy it wasnt being literal as anyone with a sense of humor would perceive by reading my reply.

    I'm gonna have to agree with the disgruntled gentleman and say no good.

    How do you make a statement like that right before BWC? What are they going to do? Stand on stage and introduce their new line up as the aging and transitioning summer line up of 2011?

    Sad really. I would love to see them bounce back, and come out with something that rivals iOS and Android.

    BB is for life,they have some catching up to do but overall they have been market leaders compared to the rest_better deliver serious services late but one that lasts than last minute rushed up solutions that wont last.BB are not necessarily aiming to be the mass brand,they dont need to,they just need to be savvy and maintain their QOS.
