    Thought I'd share this. Not that I agree with the article, but is pretty interesting along with the comments below it.

    let me guess before i read...a biased review on the thunder comparing it to the iphone

    best one i read was on yahoo phone reviews, a guy reviewing the sidekick LX to his iphone, completely biased even when they are two different types of phones for different markets..

    read,
    best comment-

    "Since the BlackBerry Thunder is unreviewed, unspeced, and unknown, your conclusions about it are completely meaningless.
    In addition, you conclude that the Thunder has an inferior UI, in spite of the fact that you have never seen nor used it.
    In any event, BlackBerry offers customers a choice - keyboard or no keyboard. That's more than Apple does."

    I think the Thunder would do better than the iPhone, especially now the Bold can beat the 3G iPhone in the statistics.

    Someone replied to the article with a couple of .jpg images, including this one of a supposedly patented slide out keyboard on the Thunder.

    I don't really understand why the industry has to pay so much money to these analysts to just yap yap with no factual information to back them up. I have to say iPhone is a success, but it doesn't mean if RIM can't beat apple's iphone, then its products will automatically become a failure. If you were so into prediction, get a job at your local fortune teller booth inside the bar.

    Mossberg, you got a friend here.

    I remember this pic. BGR said that its a ripoff of HTC's designs. I have to say I kinda agree there...

    But, if RIM is going to be putting out one of these guys, I'd have to say the backup qwerty keyboard is always bonus.

    First time I've seen it. I think a lot of us are of the feeling that the only way we'd buy one of these is if it encompassed that keyboard somehow.

    I heard via the Crackberry Podcast #14 the slide out keyboard is a different BB down the road that may be called the "Storm".

    I agree, touchscreen is so "un-berry" like. I'll stick with my Curve.
