    but i did see bigfoot, my 7250 just doesnt have a camera. I have to agree with CP, i dont see RIM selling out. Yes maybe buying Motorola but that would be the only move. RIM is too profitable right now, and the premium on the stock price would be unreal.

    Even if RIM doesn't sell out imagine the possibilties of future bb with windows probably even more or better 3rd party app that would be cool

    dont think it would be better seeing that the windows os is pretty unstable as it is.

    I second that. Its more fluff than anything. Ive just about had any kinda PDA.. And I must admit, its like apples to oranges. The BB stays connected, gets you where you gotta go, and dosent crash at the worst possible moment.
    Im sticking with the "Berry"

    I third that. I have tried some other smartphones that use windows mobile. And there is a huge difference in the user interface speed. Navigation in the OS drags slower than a snail pulling a stationwagon.

    Svendy, man you are correct. I left blackberry for a week. I bought the Nokia E62. What a drag... literally. The phone is slow and is crap... Purchased it on a Monday by Friday I had to replace it. By the next Monday I went back to Blackberry...

    Blackberry for life...

    This is like Sprint buying Nextel.... Microsoft would destroy the brand loyalty and relibiity with one quick load up of its god awful software....... Besides I dont see these talks being " leaked" to lower employees. Unless your friend name is Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Ballmer and Ray Ozzie

    i don't seem RIM selling out but I did here a rumor myself that Blackberry device will also carrier the windows OS. It could be combining the two together, Microsoft really needs something stable like the blackberry so they can really take over the data device market!
