NEW YORK - The maker of BlackBerry e-mail phones has managed to reinvent its wheel repeatedly, churning out surprising new models and innovative redesigns that have repeatedly left rivals in the dust.
But it's not so easy to wow the masses with every product launch, and the latest BlackBerry reveals a little design fatigue at Research in Motion Ltd. That's a quibble, though, as the new 8800 looks sharper than RIM's current top-of-the-line 8700: It's more than 25 percent thinner, and it packs some key multimedia enhancements.
Build a man a fire and he shall be warm for the night. Catch a man on fire and he shall be warm for the rest of his life!
What a lame article... Of course the 8800 has similar styling cues to the 8100 -- it's the full qwerty complement. And, yet again, there's the questioning of the lack of 3G when it's really irrelevant considering the processor bottleneck...
I guess it's to be expected of a typical 10-minute review. I'm really looking forward to some real-world and day-to-day information on the 8800.
