"Pirates of RIM: The Curse of the BlackBerry Pearl" the title of a great write from our friends at engadget.com. They have the scoop on the BlackBerry Pearl (8100) coming to T-Mobile -- including the NDA'd press release. As they put it and i totally agree "Someone needs remind RIM that loose lips sink ships." - Read more
Very true, good Article as well. Thanks Hydn!
Very nice! I hope I see a that cingular will get this one.
Well, since Motorola Ripped off the 8700 for the Q, lets see what they come up with to rip this design off.
You want a bigger version of the SLVR?
LG's chocolate bar looks very similar, actually.
I like the looks of LG's new phone. I'm not saying i'd give up my BB for one tho. I happen to know from expeince that both Motorola and LG are just junk. But thats just my own personal view on them.
While true in some cases, I would imagine the amount of online hype being drummed up for the impending release of this handheld is QUITE overwhelming right now. There's more known at this time (one month out) about the device than was with any previous device, including the 8700. Since the release of the 7100, the popularity of BlackBerry devices and technology has exponentially grown, and thus pre-release hype and leaks will also be something that increases. Just think, this was leaked about 1.5 months prior to the release. We knew about the Motorola Q almost 6 months before its release and the Treo devices have been less and less secure on their information, now leaking pictures and detailed information anywhere between 2-8 months ahead of release.Originally Posted by hydn
This is just a fact of life, to be honest. In this industry, it really won't help any other vendor unless they want to drop their hardware devices to compete... I see that as being the only side effect of the 8100's release.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I see this a great advertising ploy on the part of RIM because it raises the hype of the device,as well as RIM stock. It also gives RIM and the carriers the opportunity to see what kind of response they'll get from the public about the device. Although BB is geared toward the business individual, I do believe there's a market for BB out there with the consumer. Look at Treo, it is used by business individuals as well as the consumer.
i hope the 8100 does well for rim because i have many customers who want a bb with a camera - now i can say go to tmo (oh wait i work for cingular) lol - i mean wait for cingular to release one . . . .
DO OR DO NOT THERE IS NO TRY
